It's amazing how party-brainwashed some people are. Any independent/objective thinking individual could observe that Palin did well only in comparison to her horrific previous interviews. And she only sounded strong when she completely avoided questions she was uncomfortable with and instead spewed off some scripts fed to her by her coaches. This was a debate NOT a town hall meeting.
