Big time losers and small time vices

Is everyone ready for tonight's VP debate? According to Andrew Halco, who ran against Sarah Palin for Alaska governor back in 2006, she's a really master debater who knows how to work a room.
I’ve debated Governor Palin more than two dozen times. And she’s a master, not of facts, figures, or insightful policy recommendations, but at the fine art of the nonanswer, the glittering generality. Against such charms there is little Senator Biden, or anyone, can do.

Senator Biden doesn't suffer fools easily (see "noun-verb-911") so he might have his hands full debating someone like Palin, who has no expectations and very little to lose. She might catch Joe off guard by throwing a few non-sequitors and might set him off "Governor Palin, that is the biggest load of bull--malarkey that I've ever heard!". His best bet is to just debate the Republican brand without even listening to what Palin says. It should be interesting, or maybe not?

At least there's playoff baseball on another channel!
