So we hunkered down with a good bottle of wine (our homemade 2003 Cab) and got busy with our Palin bingo sheets (our thanks to Piggy Toes for this steer).
Here's what we thought: No, she did not self-combust on stage. But neither did she answer many of the questions, even acknowledging such with responses to Gwen Ifil's questions such as "Can I talk about [me, my record, a subject on which I've been told exactly what to say]?" It was often as if she saw the debate as two-minute blocks of free air time. The question she evaded that I thought most disturbing was the one (also given to Biden) about her shortcomings or Achilles heel. Apparently, unlike Biden, she has none. Like Bush, she seems incapable of introspection and devoid of humility.
And the winks?
