Still, I guess, in a way, he did go into entertainment. After all, politics is such a joke in this country. It is the perfect profession for Uncle Joe.
Anyway, it wasn't Joe Biden's natural acting skills that won him the debate last night, it was his grasp of the issues the moderator raised and the issues that his opponent had to defend.
Now, to be fair, Paul Ryan wasn't all that bad last night. It wouldn't be the end of the world if we were to wake up one day and have to address him as President Ryan.
Honestly, if you are Barack Obama, you have to be feeling a little like A Rod today: You are the star of the ticket but your backup had to bail you out. Democrats have been feeling like Yankees fans felt after the first few games of the Baltimore series. They have been wishing for a star. Thanks to Uncle Joe's performance last night; I think they might finally have one.
Finally, folks have been saying that Paul Ryan stole that line about the "Bean" when telling his abortion story from Kurt Cobain.
"A brazen act of plagiarism—or a ridiculous conspiracy theory? During Thursday night’s vice-presidential debate, Paul Ryan defended his stance on abortion by telling a story about how his daughter earned the nickname “Bean”: she resembled one on her ultrasound. Skeptics were quick to point out that it’s the same anecdote late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain told when explaining how his daughter, Frances, got the middle name Bean. Ryan is a “devoted” Nirvana fan, so the theory could be true. Although on the other hand, Ryan and Cobain can’t be the only two people to compare an ultrasound photo with a bean." [Source]
For Paul Ryan's sake I hope this is not true. If you can't tell the truth about an ultrasound, how can we ever trust you?
