What counts more in a debate? Good looks or responding to the questions?

I won't belabor the point. Palin looked great, but .... 

In the Vice Presidential debate, Sarah Palin behaved like a teenager who read the dust cover and first chapter, but failed to finish the book she's giving a report on. Will America let Palin off the hook for her apparent inability to address the actual questions posed?

Many of Palin's responses were so disconnected from the questions put forth tonight, I kept expecting Gwen Ifill to tap on her mike and ask if it was actually working.

It's truly a shame (and sham) that the American public was robbed of a proper VP debate after the Commission agreed the sexist request of the McCain campaign to shorten the response times to accommodate Palin's ignorance. If Palin had been held to the normal standards of the big boys, her unreadiness would have been much more difficult to cover up.

Time will tell what most Americans think.
