Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times during that debate last night. And the thing was, he had diddly poo of use to say when he did it.

He had one job to do. Well, two jobs. The first job was to fire up all the clowns on MSNBC and give lefties – who like the idea of shoutin’ down people who disagree with them and generally actin’ like Veruca Salt from the Willy Wonka movie – a little somethin’. That’s what a good lefty sounds like. Because they’re “passionate,” and so on.

Since Obama didn’t sound like a lefty, they were pullin’ their hair out. They want their politicians to come off like union goons and race hustlers, and so Biden had to do what he did last night to buck up the hooples.

The other job was to stop Ryan from looking like he knew what he was talkin’ about. And since Joe Biden ain’t exactly in command of facts, the only way to do that was for him to come in and step on his toes. And he did. Seven dozen times, give or take a few.

Like MacAoidh said last night, it might well have worked if not for the fact he came off as a dip while doin’ it. Muggin’ for the camera like some drunk fan at a Steelers game.

And then when he started talkin’, we got this…

Which is better, I guess, than how he acted while Ryan was tryin’ to talk…

UPDATE: And one more…

    What's amazing is that if he hadn't been such a jerk, Biden could (amazingly) have won that debate.

      People buy on emotion. The optics of Biden's bizarre, "supercilious, gratuitously belittling, and at times disrespectful (Zogby!)" behavior will be what people remember most. Just play his faces on a looping video feed and people will be clamoring to put him in a cage

      Oh, come off it. If the Archangel Michael burst through the backdrop and, to a chorus of fourth and fifth intervals from 14,400 angels, anointed Joe Biden the holy successor to Jesus Christ, the Fox News crowd would point out that his performance sucked because his forehead was so shiny on camera.

      Biden had facts and experience. Ryan had the same debunked lies and vague assertions he always has.

      You are right. The polls of the American people were wrong. Biden is a genius, and speaks as well as Winston Churchill at his best. If Obama is The One, the Biden is Number Two

      Craig, "debunked lies?" You mean like that the White House didn't have intel that Benghazi was an Al Qaeda operation? Or that Biden voted against authorizing Afghanistan and Iraq?

      Craig DeForest…we always hear about these debunked lies and vague assertions, but never specifics exactly which. I understand why Ryan was a little off his game…it was like trying to play Othello with a talking parrot babbling in the background.

    The Old Hyena was pathetic and grossly unbecoming in word and deed while incessantly interrupting the more thoughtful, earnest and "more presidential" young Mr. Ryan. This performance will not do the first thing to drive voters into the dependency inducing Obama/Biden arms. Stick a fork in 'em; Barry and Joey are done! They will lose all 57 states!

    The Old Hyena embarrassed himself…again.
    These people are as useless as dried-up springs of water or as clouds blown away by the wind–promising much and delivering nothing. They are doomed to blackest darkness.

    I believe that Biden intended to disrupt the debate to prevent Ryan from presenting his platform. If you know that the other guy might win, make sure that neither side gets presented. Allowing the Republicans to present their actual positions instead of the lies painted by the media has been shown to cause Obama to lose ground. I expect the president to take a similar tactic in his remaining debates.

    Eric. Those hair plugs hold his brain in contact with his cranium. That way he can concentrate on keeping his zipper up and support his flaccid intellect. Joe Biden's leadership and command of all things oral is evident in the smirk Beaurat Obama has on his face every time he speaks from a podium. Biden's hidden like the girl in Police Academy. How else could this droid be selected as VP?
