Debate's what ya put on dehook...

Just finished watching the Biden/Palin debate, managing neatly to hit the off switch between the end of the debate and whoever was about to come on and tell me what I heard. I expect both video and transcript will be all over the net tomorrow, and people can make up their own minds.

One thing I found the most telling was the reaction to the question about what they would do as VP and specifically what they thought of Cheney's attempts to .. um.. extend the powers of the VP. Biden said that the powers and duties of the VP were spelled out exactly in the Constitution, that the VP is NOT part of the legislative branch, and Cheney was the most dangerous VP to come along thus far. Palin seems to be delighted at the chance to be a trifle "creative". Um... No.
