    Left-wing CNN had Ryan winning the debate. I guess Joe’s laughing hyena act didn’t go over well.

    As Wolf Blitzer said some time ago, anyone thinking CNN is “liberal” is an idiot.

    They sure aren’t conservative and they had your boy Joe losing. Yeah it wasn’t as bad as the whooping the Prez got, but then again this is just the VP debates.

    Joe Biden came across like a-know-it-all condescending clown, exactly what he is….

    The only gaff Biden employed was firmly hooked in Ryan.

    Of course, lester must toe the party line. Won’t let facts enter into this…

    Another editorial cartoon depicts Biden as the adult at the table and Ryan as an angry baby in a highchair. Both of these toons are unhelpful in elevating the debate and very helpful in driving the ideological wedge between citizens and neighbors. I thought both men did well, but- I felt Biden did better, and with less malarkey.

    His current condition is chronic: whenever he opens his mouth his brain shuts down and his butt takes over control. Crass but realistic.

    Yeah, y’know—-I was distracted by Ryan’s odd hair “style”, also.
    Granted, it is not what is on the head, rather what is in it, but PLEASE!
    The gel flip in the front had me wondering…does he spend time getting that feature “just right”?
    Well, I suppose it “Trumps” the ghastly comb-over…

    Our Corporate Insect Masters have approved of this delightful cartoon.

    Saw some polls after the debate. showed fighure like 55% Biden 49% Ryan, helped their party 85% Biden 75% Ryan… figures just don’t compute. Can’t people figure there is only a total of 100% for anything? If they meant 85% of the Dems/viewers felt he help and 15%felt he hurt, say that. but you can’t have 85% and 75%.

    His “malarkey” was just show and lies, typical smoke and mirrors for the audience. The trick was to make you believe his slight of hand .

    These debates are the bad side of rhetoric. I notice that most people are talking about cosmetics — physical or otherwise — and very few are talking issues. The issues are fairly clear, they have been for months now. Obama didn’t have a good debate, but he still has the right side of the argument, and no matter how surprisingly well Romney did, his arguments don’ make sense — if you can figure out what he stands for, anyway. Imagine if we were to try to settle scientific arguments this way — “Well, I thought Einstein’s hair was just crazy, and it really distracted from his presentation, and the way he mumbles — can’t he even speak English properly?”

    Well, what could be points of debate? Health care? The ACA isn’t the best plan — personally I think a single-payer system would be a lot better — but at least it’s something, something that can be improved. Does Romney have anything substantive to offer? Except keeping the parts of the ACA that he likes?

    Foreign policy? If Romney is going to be Bush #3, then everybody watch out!!! It’s a complicated world out there, and I wouldn’t say Obama has been flawless, but overall he’s done well. No contest there.

    For me, the only point where I see a real debate has to do with the national debt. How much is too much? Have we reached a worrisome point or not? If we pull back too soon, do we risk another economic crisis? If we decide we do have to lower the debt, how fast do we do it, and how do we do it? We can (and should) raise taxes on the wealthy, but that won’t get enough revenue. So do we have to cut? Where? I’d go for defense.

    And if a lot of the problem comes from expenditures on health care, how do we get those under control? One can demonstrate over and over that public health is really where you get bang-for-your-buck, but when people are old and sick and dying, they want all the bells and whistles (and I’d probably be right there making the same demands). How do we say No in a reasonable way?

    So, Dred, there’s a start. Your move. Notice I didn’t mention anyone’s hair or chuckling.
