ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius is among Democrats shooting back at GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Sebelius said today that Palin ``mastered the words written by the Bush speechwriters'' to deliver ``partisan attacks and no real solutions.'' The comments were similar to those by Democratic vice-presidential hopeful Joe Biden on television networks this morning.

The Democratic rapid response team in Denver scrambled to get Sebelius on a media conference call to respond to Palin. The Alaska governor's speech ignited Republican excitement and was favorably received by commentators.

Biden is scheduled to debate Palin in St. Louis on October 2nd, and has already started playing the expectations game. He said on CNN, ``Boy, she's going to be a tough debater.''
