Live-Blogging The Veeps  —  10.30 pm.  Biden's sobriety and authority and call for fundamental change is both reasonable and solid.  It will resonate, I think.  As you can read, I began this debate feeling that she was steam-rolling him.  She was.  But it was a steam-roller coming at you on fumes, not real fuel.

Post-debate thoughts  —  Sarah Palin won!  Actually, she survived, since she had no “deer in headlight” moments.  Of course, it's easy to do that when you say, straight up, that you won't answer any questions you don't like.  And in true to her word, she tossed aside any question …

LIVE BIDEN-PALIN BLOGGING PART II  —  10:03 PM ... Didn't Palin just get the name wrong of our Army commander in Afghanistan.  His name is David D. McKiernan.  Who's the McClellan she was talking about?  She pretty clearly misstated what he said, but she seems not even to know who he is.

Why Sarah's Sex Life Matters  —  A lot of people have said “I don't know if it's fair to look at Sarah Palin's sexuality the way people are — I just don't know if it's sexist or appropriate.  Why can't we just treat her like a human being?”  Okay, I'm going to tell you why it's appropriate for us to gloat and delve into every detail.

Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
The Bottom Line  —  Biden didn't put the boot in; he didn't come off as sexist; he didn't make any obvious gaffes.  Palin didn't collapse and pushed through the debate with enough speed not to wobble.  But it felt as if she needed the speed in order not to wobble.
