If I read this again I'm going to fly to the news room and slap someone in the face. He was not verbose, he was simply supporting his arguments. I thought Palin did as well as she could last night. She was well prepared, and simply didnt answer the questions that she couldnt answer, which is what she should do. Biden was impressive, he seemed to be an encyclopedia of information and could actually support his arguments with facts and statistics. I'm really starting to hate the general public, its like they are completely out of touch with what the issues are, in a bipartisan way. And when someone steps up with a logical, thought out argument..its "verbose". No wonder campaigns simply regurgitate talking points...they general public can't comprehend an actual case for one policy or another. Stupid.
