VP Debate, its Analysis, and some Songs

update: Better factcheck with audio here.

Given that the VP debate was from 3am local time, and since I had to come to work today, I figured the best thing would be to listen to NPR's analysis in the morning.

And that is what I did, when I kinda woke up today at 5am, I started the analysis at this NPR post, and got what I wanted :). For NPR's factchecking of this debate, check this post out. Of course, if you want to see the whole thing, you can do it at NBC.

Or, you can read the wonderful analysis posted by Ms. Jamba Jagannathan at her blog post with the wonderfully pun-tastic title of Palintology And The Well Above Average Joe.

From the post:
Amy Poehler, at the end of the SNL skit on the Palin-Couric interview, asked "Forgive me, Mrs. Palin, but it appears that when cornered, you become increasingly adorable. Is that fair to say?

Oh doggone it, you betcha.

Tonight's VP debate proved just that, and Sarah didn't even need to be really cornered. Right down from talking about soccer moms and even winking in a "hey you" kind of way at the camera, Barbie all but asked Gwen Ifill and Joe Biden to join her at the Hometown Buffet for some moose steaks.


Still, her performance in this debate may have been the best thing to happen to a faltering campaign impeded further by McCain's annoying political dances around the $700 billion bailout.

Biden, on the other hand, did so well, he overshadowed Obama's performance during last week's debate.

And finally, some songs which I am swaying to this morning, as I sit with my headphones on, working at my desk at INRIA, waiting for the evening rendezvous with the K&K gang!
