Palin displayed charm and grace during the VP debate this past week. Using her best beauty-queen persona and sorority-sister method of disagreeing with another, she charmingly denigrated Biden's comments on the Bush influence on Republican policies, past and future, and proceeded to graciously avoid answering the moderator's question. In the manner described by her spokesperson to CNN who explained Palin's non-responsive answers to many of Couric's question as her method of choosing which questions she will not answer so that--I interpreted her as saying--the discussion doesn't get bogged down in the complexity of answers and possible questions that such complexities would bring to the fore.
Through the entire debate, Palin's beautiful smile almost blinded me to the fact that she did not offer any viable solutions to our nation's problems, nor did she effectively describe McCain's solutions to said problems. She quoted Obama in stating, "Change," but did not describe what the changes would be--nor even what needed to be changed. Her use of sound-bites throughout her responses resonated with the public, who, being familiar with the meaning of each Word, knew exactly what that Word implied.
In closing, I say to you, "Word!"
