Biden sounded the standard Democratic goo-gah about the middle class and Regulation and blah blah blah on the economy, then pivoted to avow eternal defense of Israel, escalation in Afghanistan, and something or other over the next year-and-half in Iraq. Palin was merely incoherent. I suppose that counts as a win for her. I was hoping they would eat each other, and after thirty minutes, realizing that it wasn't in the offing, I switched to liquor. My life, Oh Lord, for a cheeseburger.
