Funny, Twitter generally burst with reactions that Biden's grinning, laughing and general condescending attitude at the table was distracting at best, certainly awkward, and even disturbing.
Yet, Politico's own Roger Simon was all jolly over the weird display of hyena-like aggression (verging on rabid-like, too): "Biden smirked, sneered, and openly laughed at many of Ryan’s responses. It could have looked rude, but Biden made it look tough.
"After all, Biden was the 69-year-old defender and Ryan was the 42-year-old challenger. But by the end of the evening, Joltin’ Joe had done real damage to his opponent." (Read Simon's adoring piece: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82323.html#ixzz295ssBwhL )
"FORWARD" THIS, Obama-Biden folks: I hear Biden's up for playing an aging Joker in the next Batman movie reboot. I wonder who should be Two-Face? The Riddler? Catwoman might be Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (not meant in a sexy way, I assure you). Hmm, I see a parody coming on... David Zucker, are you reading this?
