VP debate between Biden, Palin better than scripted television

Updated at 2:14 p.m.

Like 38 million other people, I sat down last night to watch the anticipated Vice Presidential Debates between Senator Joe Biden of Delaware (Dem.) and Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska (Rep.). I've already made up my mind on who won that debate, but even if you're still unsure about who took home the gold, at least we can all agree it certainly was entertaining.

Here are just some of the highlights from the debate.

Joe Biden shoots down Sarah Palin's description that Presidential hopeful John McCain is a "maverick." End of the debate.

The VP candidates talk about their respective health care plans.

Palin gets the U.S. Commanding Officer's name wrong. Turns out the guy she named was in the Civil War.

Palin: "White flag of surrender." Probably one of her best highlight from the debate. Oh so quotable, ahem, "Saturday Night Live."

Nielsen line shows Biden wins big on topic of war.

If you haven't watched the debate, don't worry. CSPAN has graciously uploaded the full 92-minute (oh no, they went over by 120 seconds!) VP debate on YouTube.
