Debates are all about expectations. So it’s simple: People expect Biden to perform decently. Expectations for Sarah Palin on the other hand are just higher than they would be if Clay Aiken was in a presidential debate.

Thus as long as our girl Sarah doesn’t completely screw up (perhaps by citing Putin flying 35,000 feet over her state above the school she was PTA president of) she will be declared “winner.”
