Ryan was pretty good, but Biden was Biden — and that's a pretty amazing thing to be. Maybe Obama can call in sick next week and send in Biden as substitute debater. Frankly, I wouldn't mind at all if Obama called in sick of politics and sent in Biden as substitute candidate.
People talk about Biden's "gaffes." I don't call them gaffes. I call them telling the truth.
I thought Martha Raddatz was really on top of things, but there's no doubt in my mind that the right will accuse her of bias because she showed so little tolerance for dissimulation and bullshit. Maybe they'll let her do a presidential debate in 2016, but I wouldn't bet on it.
I especially enjoyed the closing statements. Biden's pre-scripted remarks sounded sincere and authentic. Ryan's pre-scripted remarks sounded like pre-scripted remarks.
