I regret that I will not be able to live-blog the Biden-Ryan gaffe fest. There are some family obligations this evening. I will try to comment on the highlights as the new, shiny, bright items grab the attention of the Fourth Estate for the next little news cycle.
Predictions? Biden will say at least one stupid thing. Ryan will say a few more. There will be some rough altercations and Ryan will hold his own against the Biden. He's no Theseus, though. I hope they address the Randian philophy head on. Let the people choose.
Well, they're saying it's a draw which goes to the challenger. So, the Reagan/Ryan crowd can get all excited again. But by getting the administration's points across in his energetic way, Biden did enough to help boost up their base. At least the Biden was able to call much of what Ryan said "Malarkey." I think that's Irish for bull puckey.
So each team can go back to its corner, spit the blood out of the mouth, and get ready for the next round.
I sure am getting tired of this.
