Biden's caustic and offensive stratgegy of ridiculing Ryan is from Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals". The following links will explain a version of RforR called, "The Delphi Technique". It is used effectively to manipulate concensus. Read, learn and practice.

So, what is the delphi technique?
It’s just another attempt to tie current events to some
obscure crap that never worked in the first place.
Attributing some magical effects to some hippie-radical scribbling.
Pretty effing weak, if you ask me.
We need not add credence to this bullshite.
Did anyone else notice that the way Biden acted last night is clearly the way the administration has acted toward the people?
Never (that I know of) has an administration been more at odds with the will of the people than this one and Biden typified it with his rude laughter.
The people express themselves and obama just keeps true to his ideology; the ultimate “in your face”. Biden’s ongoing laughter, last night was right in line.

To disrupt it, remain calm, stay on point, don't rise to the bait.
Then find them in the parking lot and throw dog poop on their shoes.
I think sane people recognize an A-Hole when they see one. Biden got a lot of people to see him as such last night.
I believe it has something to do with selling your opponent crappy auto marts.
Did anyone else notice Biden point his finger at the moderator and say something to the effect.. Martha, I didn’t expect this from you.
And the part where Biden mentioned Syria and that we were analyzing who the good guys are so we can give them the equipment they need...so do we have people there doing this?
An interesting resource. Thanks for posting it!
The way to counter it is to deal with it directly. Ryan did not do that.
George Bush did it effectively against Al Gore in their debate just by cocking his head and looking at Gore in a manner that said Gore was acting really wierd. It took no words.
Ryan just kept going with this message. Biden overplayed his hand, however, which is what saved Ryan. Ryan should have been preparred, turned to Biden and said something like, Joe, thermal nuclear war is a pretty serious subject. Laughing at it is not good.
Or he could have just said, Joe, I know what tactic you are trying to use. It is right out of Alinsky’s book. Explain the Alinsky tactic for the viewers. Then say, keep playing games if you like, but this nation has serious economic troubles, there are millions of views looking to see which one of us has the best solution. What they are getting from you is a cheap debate tactic.
Something like that.
I give them both a pass on Syria as the correct answer is just too un-pc to be spoken at the debate.
As long as their killing each other, why would we care?
Dontcha just love the way “some” people jump in
and comment before they read that article???
Hope these links help.

And they say Obama is lazy?
Naked breasts and missing arms always makes me stop laughing.
