For those of you just coming off tonight’s vice-presidential debate, you’re probably realizing that all the action and knock-out blows took place not in the Steelers-Titans game, but between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. You’re probably also wondering where in all that’s sacred was President Obama with all this gusto last week and, well, it’s probably because President Obama chose the scrappy but thoughtful sparring partner from Scranton as his VP in order to say the things that he can’t. Obama gets to be the lofty JFK, whereas Biden gets to be RFK; that is, the fiery, witty and loquacious defender of Obama like RFK was to his more professorial and thoughtful brother. Captain Capitalist’s little free market boy wonder really stood no chance at weaving all the fantastic fiction and fact-checker wet dream fodder that Romney so effortlessly did during the Presidential debate. Although the frisky puppy in Paul Ryan bit back, he was ultimately tossed aside by the much more experienced and wiser dog.
