Crazed Uncle Joe stole the show last night in the presidential debate. His riant face glowed at all the wrong moments. Paul Ryan held on admirably, considering the side show Joe was putting on and the constant interruptions from the moderator.

.........are those teeth fake? Can't imagine someone Joe's age with such white perfect teeth.

Actually, I think it’s Ryan who should be cheerful this morning. He presented his case for mature leadership with cool aplomb, while his opponent wore a smily mask and gibbered like a chimpanzee.

Ryan is my new favorite celeb-riant.

Joe Biden wasn’t, really, riant throughout the VP debate, and Joe came across, often, as arrogant, rude, interruptive, and angry towards, both, Paul Ryan and the moderator.

I doubt Joe won over anyone but his base. Riant Ryan should be proud.

Clever! A+++

I have a riant smile this morning knowing that Paul Ryan not only looked thoughtful and calm under pressure but also articulate and able to take over as President should he need to step into that position. In the end that's all that mattered last night to the Americn electorate.

To sum it up in one word Ole Plugs looked "Dismissive" of Paul Ryan.

I don't think that's gonna go over to well with the younger crowd in this country, who are being left holding the bag on all the wasteful spending and lack of leadership Obozo and company have shown.

Yes, I agree. Ryan should be riant this morning. Even CNN said that he won the debate last night. Personally, I ws a little disappointed with my man at the end on the abortion question. I think that Paul was just a little overwhelmed by all the interruptions because I have heard Ryan give a much stronger deense of that question.

I'm still emotional over the bullying performence by blowhard Biden.

The Left-wing blogs are all riant-
Joe Biden — Intellectual Giant.
“He won the debate,
He was cool, he was great!”
While he simply was rude and defiant.

After a week in seclusion, dem operatives managed only to train Joe Biden into a riant caricature of himself, whose motto became: I rant, therefore I am. This was in marked contrast to Paul Ryan who seemed nary a bit perturbed.

A+++ I always thought perhaps we exaggerated Joe’s crazy ways.....but alas, he is worse than anyone knew. To think they gave him intense debate prep, yet didn’t request he tone down the smirks and disrespect? They lost, again. All eyes turn back to Obama next week. Can’t imagine they have a clue.

I heard it described on Twitter as Joe the drunk, Martha the bartender and Paul the salesman who just wanted a quiet drink. Joe won’t shut up, Martha can’t control him and Paul just wants to get out of there.

Well, as big a liar as he is, as big an “expert” on foreign policy as he is supposed to be, and as big a pompous jerk as he proved himself to be last night, it may become obvious to even liberals that Joe Biden in no riant of a real man.

Joey Chompers needs to check himself before he wrecks his manic riant self.
See Proverbs 29:9 If a wise man contends with a foolish man, Whether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace.

Also, am I the only one wondering what the WH shrink loads up into these guys before their debates? Too many tranks for ozero and poor control of the labile one last night.

I also hope that the so-called fact checkers remind everyone that in spite of what he claimed last night, Joey Chompers voted for both wars and the prescription drug plan. Who is the liar again?

OH, I think Joe played to the devoted liberal nutcases, they saw nothing wrong with his boorish behavior. The problem is, they wanted to hang on to the female vote and overwhelmingly the women found him obnoxious. The independents were rebuffed by that performance. I can’t imagine in the real fight for votes that Joe helped at all. I think he lost them votes. It was so difficult to watch that most women must have tuned out to go go bed. Today at the water cooler, I expect they are dismayed.

Joey was a riant flop last night. A+++

Must have been hillbuzz or some such site had the theory that Obama was taken off cocaine to run for reelection. Implied he was put on something for the debate to even out his performance and it wore off....I was LOL when I read that. Nice theory. I think he just has nothing this time around. What can he run on? The truth? What can he be passionate about? Getting more “flexibility” for a second term? Obama is flat only because his subjects are not swooning and fainting at his rallies. As for Joe, well, he was being Joe. Not really new. He, too, leveled off late in the debate and looked like he came off the happy juice. Both were epic fails, IMHO.
