Palin is repeating the "fundamentals of the economy are strong" line referred to "the American workers." If that's the case, then why did the RNC cut an ad dishonestly implying that Obama said the same thing and attacking him for it?
On the other hand, Palin is best when she's criticizing Obama. When she's talking about technical stuff, she sounds like she's just repeating stuff she's memorized.
There's also a lot of signifying, she's mentioned hockey moms, joe sixpack, and soccer games already and it's the first 10 minutes of the debate. But truly odd was when she argued that "America wants new, fresh ideas," since you know, John McCain is at the top of her ticket. But as we know, Palin sometimes forgets that.
