ST LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Palin's answers do not lack confidence, they lack coherence.

    Palin's comments are all fluff and no fabric.

    She uses too much "slang" "Back in the day" – that's ok when talking to the girls, but on national TV in view of millions, running for VP of America. People get ready.....there's a storm a comin'

    Bill Schneider, you got it in for Palin?
    Got nothing to say about Biden?
    How about some balanced, unbiased commentary?
    Is that possible?

    Interesting that when asked what her achilles heel is, she could not think of one thing; instead, she used her time to remind us again that she has been a mayor and governor and to say yet again that John McCain is a maverick. She has spent the entire debate shuffling her cheat sheets she brought with her to produce canned, rehearsed answers to the questions, but providing little substance. This woman is a complete fraud and we should all be very afraid if she gets anywhere near the white house.

    Like the writer said in Newsweek: confidence and ignorance.

    Thanks Sarah for commenting about the mainstream media's far left screening of all political commentary.

    Fox News and people who would vote for an animal if they run on the republican ticket will say she was awesome.

    People who are open and honest will agree with the ad. The woman has not clue except for the que cards.

    I can't believe how much Joe Biden has lied tonight.

    Joe Biden is a trial lawyer to the bone. Everyone should watch the Democratic primary debates, so you can see how much Biden bashed Obama. He's all talk, just like Obama.

    It is so clear that Palin does not support drinking in moderation... I'm so drunk right now from drinking every time I hear Palin utter the words "maverick" and "energy independence...."

    Palin has not answered anything! This is scripted. She is just reading a story!

    Palin is NOT the answer. Spunk yes! Smarts NO!

    Is anybody really surprised about this? I mean seriously surprised. I spoke to a 5 year old the other day and she made more sense than this lady. Scary thought she might be President Palin if McCain kicked the bucket.

    As if foreign leaders didn't have enough of a problem understanding Amercians with cultural and language differences. Do we really need them listening to someone who can't even put a coherent sentence together?

    Debate – it was her Stump Speech. Teflon Palin a Maverick of Deflection!

    She is ignorant on many critical issues. It's clear that it's being concealed – thinly – by expert coaching.

    I was amazed at Palin smiling while saying that she is a very tolerant person who is always willing to be tolerant of the gay community. I don't think she even realizes what she is saying or how demeaning that is. I wonder if the gay community appreciates her "tolerating" their very existence.

    It's like a boxing match with the world champ against the club boxer. And the champ is beating the hell out of the club boxer. It's almost painful to watch. Almost, but not quite.

    Palin seems to just babble . She mentions that she likes to answer the tough questions but she did not do a good job of doing this. There were moments were her voice quirved as if she was getting frustrated. Did anyone catch that? Her final statement was so lame and rehearsed. SMH......
