Sarah Palin Has Never Watched Her 2008 Debate; Also, Call Him “Mr. Ryan”

Tonight’s one and only vice presidential debate will look and feel a little different than last week’s first presidential debate. The topics will be split between foreign and domestic issues, broken into nine 10-minute segments.

Moderator Martha Raddatz will be referring to Rep. Ryan as “Mr. Ryan,” a request from the Romney-Ryan campaign.

Vice President Biden and Rep. Ryan will be seated next to each other and at the same table as Raddatz. This is similar to VP debates in 2000 and 2004, though not 2008, when Biden and Gov. Sarah Palin stood behind podiums.

While 69.9 million watched that Biden-Palin debate. Palin, now with Fox News, told Megyn Kelly today she’s never watched it: “Life goes on, you move forward,” said Palin. “I don’t rehash the past.”
