  •  It was a great debate. (13+ / 0-)

    First off, Martha Raddatz did a great job of holding both candidates to account for answering her questions and kept the debate rolling. Her first question was a little too reporter-ish for a debate, but overall, she's not the story this morning and that means she succeeded.

    Secondly, Joe Biden was flawless. The worst you could say is that he stumbled over a few remarks, but since none of them were canned responses, it didn't feel unnatural to listen to him. A real, passionate human being who hates talking points showed up to debate "The Congressman," and we were treated to some much-needed straight talk in the face of Romney/Ryan mendacity.

    Ryan, on the other hand, flubbed so many canned responses and was all wonky and numberish that I seriously doubt most undecided voters cared to follow what he was saying.

    My personal highlight was when he flubbed the fake folksy line about overseas for Wisconsinites being Canada, because he accidentally phrased it as though he was from some place overseas called "Lake Superior."

      on that one.

      The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
