The VP debate

While it seems like the media is trying to tell us the VP debate was a tie, there was no doubt in the minds of the 80+ liberals at Saints and Sinners that Biden took it handily.  Sure, we gave Palin credit where it was due – after all her head didn’t explode with all the facts that Biden was throwing at her. But then she didn’t really seem to be attention to them anyway.  Same for the questions being asked of her.  

To me the debate wasn’t nearly as entertaining as I thought it would be, so it’s a good thing we had bingo cards.  Many people got bingo – I think I even heard of someone that got a blackout.  KUTV 2 showed up early in the night and interviewed Heather, Laura and I.  While they didn’t post the video, you can read the article here.  KSL 5 showed up a little later and chatted with Misty at Saintless and Sheryl with Democracy for Utah. Watch the video here.  Even the Deseret News showed up and chatted with us for a bit.

Overall it was a fun night, despite a few logistical issues. We hope everyone had a good time.  There are a few photos over in our Flickr pool.
