  •  The entire VP debate, especially... (19+ / 0-)

    "Oh, you're Jack Kennedy now?"

    My wife and I watched that debate on a huge projected screen at the Sage Lounge in Provincetown.
    P-town loves Joe & Jill so much that there was still a banner across Commercial Street announcing their campaign fundraiser at the Pilgrim Monument... in August.

    It was Women's Week. The patrons at the Sage had been drinking heavily. I could accurately say that I was the only man in the room... except that I might as well have not been there. Joe Biden was the only man in the room who mattered that night. The crowd laughed, cheered, and stamped their feet. When Joe jabbed two or three times and landed his Jack Kennedy blow, he got applause.

    My wife and I look forward to forgetting a lot of Campaign 2012, but watching Joe beat the living shit out of Paul Ryan was the best 90 minutes of the year.
