Well, at least one democrat listened to the debate last night and did not just read the DNC talking points memo.
Democratic spokesperson and former Clinton official Kirstin Powers blasted Barack Obama for his inaction during the financial crisis.
Powers also admitted that Gov. Sarah Palin is the only one who gets it:
Kirstin Powers weighed in on the Pelosi-Reid Congress after the bailout vote today. She also talked about Barack Obama and Sarah Palin.
This statement was loaded with goodies:
If their approval rating matched what their own opinion on themselves is they’d be in great shape. You know, it’s kind of incredible to watch them patting themselves on the back… The fact of the matter is they’re cleaning up a mess. And, the fact of the matter is at least in the short term they created with their inaction in getting this passed in the first place.

Is the responsibility or the irresponsibility of the American people… People need to learn to live within their means and not be signing up for loans that they can’t afford. Everybody is not helpless. There’s personal responsibility and they need to be talking directly to the American people and Sarah Palin is the only one who is doing that.
