Dodging questions all night, Palin refused to talk about taxes and drilling domestic oil. Despite her appalling ignorance, everyone agrees that Palin made an impact.
Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) — The 90-minute debate on Thursday had mixed responses. Sarah Palin, it seems, lost some and won some with her attitude and performance. In any case, the responses were all for her. She did draw much of the attention, whether positive or negative. She got enthusiastic support from some for her sharp one-liners she gave like “Say it ain’t so, Joe.” Dodging questions all night, Palin refused to talk about taxes and drilling domestic oil.
However, the ones who were impressed were drawn to her. Mr. Rogers, an 82-year old, says he was impressed with Palin and was surprised that she did so well.
The students of Washington University responded in a different way. Chiraag Alur, 20, from Texas said that he had always been pro-Republican and had been planning to vote in favor of the party until Sarah Palin was named the vice presidential candidate. Students at Danforth University Center rooted for Biden. Allison Coffman, 20, said, “The only thing that makes sense is that McCain picked her to get my vote because I’m a woman. She doesn’t bring anything to the table. And the fact that she managed to never directly answer a question — and supported a foreign policy where our leaders wouldn’t sit down and talk with other leaders — is terrifying.”
Despite her appalling ignorance, everyone agrees that Palin made an impact. “She did much better than I anticipated,” said Harriet Strong, 78. She added, “I think he’s very intelligent. I think she is too, but she has to work harder.”
