Actually, I DID do that once on a test (a test about the powers of the presidency, actually -- I'd only memorized three out of five, so I spun the essay answer to talk about how these other three were way more important than the one the question asked about), but, you know... a) I was ON TOPIC, and b) I'm not running for vice president.

Over at The Edge of the American West they suggest her performance is like a student trying to bluff her way through a test after cramming for it right before it started. They have up a portion of one of her replies and it just is lacking in any substance and is just packed with buzz words in no particular order.

(As an aside, I want to find the person who decided to inject "toxic" into the recent financial discussions and just hit him or her about the head with a rolled up newspaper.)

I do hear people talking like that, but as you say, they're not running for vice president.

I think EVERYONE did that in college. On occasion we'd even get partial credit, so it was worth a try.
