Palin is "Rain Man"

Hartford Courant:
Biden missed a golden opportunity to score one of his own in response to Palin's almost "Rain Man" like repetition of the word "maverick."

"I knew Maverick, Gov. Palin. James Garner was a friend of mine, and you, governor, are no Maverick."

Toward the end of the debate it finally hit me what was appealing to me about Palin. It was her accent, her folksy pronunciation of phrases like "you betcha" and "doggone it." Put a parka and mad-bomber hat on her and she was a clone of the sheriff played by Frances McDormand in the movie "Fargo."

Gosh, darn it, Higgins, I think she's got it!
