Fact is, Paul Ryan looked way out of his depth, and for a party that spent the last four years claiming Biden was an idiot, it turns out he turned the GOP's "policy wonk" into roadkill.
Will this impact the numbers? We'll always wait and see but probably not. President Barack Obama was already recovering, and convention wisdom (generally right in this case) is that veep debates don't change broad campaign dynamics.
But what tonight did was reassure liberals that our ticket will be fighting to the end, that they won't let the other side try to dish copious amounts of bullshit. So we base liberals are happy again, which means we'll be productive bees because no matter what some of you claim, no one likes to work hard for the team that is 10 points down (or feels that way).
So yeah, tonight was fun. Let's do it again next Tuesday!
