I think this would have been a more accurate choice: Photobucket

Yes, Ted Olson is troubling, but not near as troubling; nay, make that as catastrophic as another four years of Obama. Anyone but Obama, ANYONE!

You sure they didn’t say “Ted Baxter”? Ted Olsen can speak without getting tongue tied or making a major gaffe.

Uhhhh...Ted Olson is pro-gay marriage and has kind of turned liberal...

An ominous association.

Et tu Paul Ryan?

Paul Ryan, I hope you’re not being fleeced.

The the seemingly once conservative, now liberal Ted Olson is portraying liberal Joe Biden in debate prep.

Paul Ryan is not going to choose a conservative to play a liberal. He has to be able to debate libspeak. It seems like a bonus to me that Olson not only has seen both sides of the political landscape but argued before the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore.

Please think about it before you start accusing. Is Joe Biden conservative? No. Will Paul Ryan be debating a conservative in the VP debate? No. Why would he choose a conservative to play a liberal in preparation for that debate? That would be stupid, and Paul Ryan is not stupid.

The goal is to INFLATE EXPECTATIONS of Biden’s debating prowess - he called himself a “foreign policy expert” earlier in the week.

It is in the R-R interest to raise expectations for both Obama and Biden in the debates as high as possible. Then, when they crash, the public is astonished at how bad they really were.

Sounds like he will be able to be a "credible" Biden then...

I miss Ted's wife, Barbara...
