Column: Obama and Biden were winning Hold it, Im confused. I watched all of the vice presidential debate last night, and someone did not show up. Vice President Joe Biden was therehow could one miss him, with all the grinning, grunting, interrupting, and sneering. But where was the Ayn Rand-worshiping, rape-redefining, fanatically exercising zealot who wants to throw grandmothers off of cliffs and whose budget plan is, according to the president, thinly veiled Social Darwinism that is antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility? That Paul Ryan was nowhere to be found. What America saw instead was a young and likable and knowledgeable conservative worried about the current trajectory of fiscal, monetary, foreign, and social policy. Where Biden harrumphed, Ryan calmly litigated President Obamas failed record. Twice in eight days, the caricatures against which President Barack Obama and Biden are purporting to run have been exposed as grotesque exaggerations. The liberal attempt to frighten America with the illusory specter of an extremist Republican ticket dissolved on first contact with, well, the actual ticket. The reality principle asserted itself once again. We have an open race. *********************** I am so looking forward to the left getting Libya shoved up their ass in the next debate. Biden always has been an asshole.
