Public Discourse Today
The ability to Palinize without shame is really an art form. Palin has perfected it. She is asked about her Achilles heel--her inexperience. In "response," she talks about "being a mom," worrying about "kids heading off the college." And she pivots into her litany of platitudes.
Biden, in response to the same question, answers it with humility, acknowledging that he is passionate and then transitioning into his accomplishments.
Biden counters Palin's "mom" argument by citing his life story, and describing how he was there for his family when his wife died and he had to stand vigil by his child's hospital bed. Biden teared up, clearly emotional.
