From Noam Scheiber. My favorite part:

When Palin started off, you thought, “Wow, she seems so fresh–so human and easy to relate to. How can we compete with that?” Then, as the debate wore on, you thought, “Hmm, okay, she still seems human, but not quite what I’m looking for in a vice president.” And, by the end, as the vacuous answers piled up, it was more like, “Good God, keep this woman away from the Oval Office.” Which is the story of the last month, too.
