It would be fantastic if Biden showed up to the debates by driving a Harley onto stage and telling Ryan to go park it, "I've got a debate tonight with some kid who thinks that just because he's a young'un he can afford to mess with the bull - if you wax it there's an extra quarter in it for yah." Then he could tousle Ryan's hair and go shake hands with all the pretty ladies in the audience.

Maybe he reminds us of our dads. Joe Biden is 69, but the idea that he's an out-of-it charmer-all hair-band '80s heart with no indie-rock 2012 brains-seems to endear him to a Gen-X audience.

Yeah, us Gen-Xers are so gullible when it comes to internet memes. We need to grow up and vote for real candidates, like Allen West and Joe the Plumber.

Because he's awesome.

Because he's not rich, he's not super-fit, he's not vain and he's not a douchebag. Because he gets up and stands up for people who aren't as well off as him, because he rides the rails with people with lunch pails. Because when the Onion wanted to come up with ways to make fun of him, they had nothing. Because farker loves him some ice cream.

The reason he's the best punchline in American politics is because he's a perfectly good natured guy who is happy being joked about, and will laugh along with it.

So I guess this answers my question: Joe Biden's not a victim. So our count is at 1.

jso2897: ABQGOD: So, if we're just going to pretend that Biden will also lose a debate, can we just skip it and start voting?

The narrative demands a "close race". Ryan will be declkared victor if he doesn't shiat himself - just like Romney was.


I don't believe the "media narrative" theory, only because I must stay consistent. If pre-debate polling and unemployment numbers aren't a conspiracy then the post-debate media can't be either.

HOWEVER, if the always-cutely named "liberal" media is clever enough to manipulate October and want to create a close race they would have to know that a poor Biden performance would result in a runaway going the other direction. And if they want to prevent that they would make sure to declare this debate a tie at worst. Hopefully--IF there is a conspiracy--they pull the trigger early and start the Comeback Obama narrative tonight.

Either way, I hardly trust undecided voters to think on their own without the crutch of the news.

This version of Biden recently re-emerged when he told supporters in Virginia, some of them black, that Mitt Romney "is going to put y'all back in chains." The "y'all" was disgraceful, as far as this listener is concerned. After this tweaked-out racism, Matt Latimer wrote in The Daily Beast that Biden should step down as vice president-and that he absolutely would be forced to, were he a Republican.

Yeah, cuz every other time one of them has said something legitimately infuriating the GOP shut down their existence within the club.


Holy Aquabuddha. How short is Latimer's memory, anyway? Does he not remember that the last Republican vice president shot a guy in the face?

I don't see how Biden can really hurt anything at this point. Romney did quite well with a continuous high speed stream of half truths and outright lies, as well as contradicting his own previous statements and positions and threatening to fire the moderator and big bird. Your typical Biden gaff will be trivial in comparison. Presentation is everything for the public apparently, so Biden should pull out all the stops.

Biden reminds me of the main gun on 18th century naval vessels.

Your ship would approach an enemy vessel; you'd exchange fire with the small guns. But they didn't always get the job done. So you'd have to break out the big gun. Yes, it was absolutely devastating when it hit its target. But every so often, it would blow up in your face instead of firing properly.

Biden is one of those cannons. And one of the most entertaining figures in modern politics, simply because of that.

It'd be nice to have an option like him, but the man himself? He's doing four to eight years in probably one of the hardest ever VP climates, let him have his rest. It's like people wanting Hillary - give the woman some time off. You're democratic voters, not Republicans - dynasties are for monarchies.

The problem is, of course, there's nobody like Joe Biden around. :\


President Franken. President Warren. President Ron Wyden (he's the liberal from Oregon, right?). President Russ Feingold. These are all phrases I would be happy to have to say on 20JAN2016.

Those words just eventually creep into your language when you live down here. You also eventually realize that y'all has verb tenses to denote who you are talking to.


Holy mother of THIS, god!

Although I remember using "ain't" a whole hell of a lot even when I lived in Jersey. Never heard a "youse" (more a "yiz", and that was New Yorkers). "Y'all" is about as racist as the Pittsburgh-y aversion to the conjugations of "to be".

Y'all is far superior to 'you guys'. English doesn't have a decent plural second-person pronoun, though y'all I think is acceptable, and should enter proper English (though not of course in academic or professional settings).


I know academics that use y'all. If you mean in academic papers, then no. But like I said, the damn word is insidious.
