Unlike the snooze-fest of a first presidential debate, last night's vice presidential debate was political pugilism at its finest. And after a 90-minute bout, Laughin' Joe Biden edged out an exhausting win over blue-eyed Republican budget boy toy Paul Ryan.
Here's your ten-second breakdown:
- Paul Ryan is an even better bullsh*tter than Mitt Romney. Unlike Obama, however, Biden actually called him on it.
- Ryan had the pained expression of a man wearing a penis pump all night under the debate table.
- Biden's teeth appear to be made of marshmallows.
Overall, the VP debate was everything that the presidential face-off was not: feisty, well-moderated, and largely fact-driven.
ABC foreign correspondent Martha Raddatz did a good job pressing the candidates to clarify and explain their statements. Sadly, that didn't stop Ryan from spinning some seriously specious arguments.
Ryan began the debate strongly by blasting the Obama administration over the Benghazi consulate attack. But then he tried claiming that Congress -- not the Obama administration -- deserved credit for implementing tough sanctions on Iran.
That's like Norris Cole taking credit for carrying the Heat to the NBA title.
