Vice President Biden may have thought his smirks and chortles showed the base there was no need to take Romney/Ryan Ryan seriously but what came across to many was that Biden didn't take the topics under discussion seriously. After the President came out of the first debate focusing on keeping Big Bird on federal assistance, this was an epic fail. Roger Ebert knows all about how the visual image can either reinforce or undercut a message. The left wing entertainment critic was tweeting last night about Biden: "Biden smiling when nothing is funny,"
How bad was it? After the debate a hot twitter hash tag was #ThingsThatMakeBidenLaugh. Because the assassination of an ambassador, embassy invasions, civilian slaughter in Syria, 10.5% unemployment in his hometown and a $16 trillion federal debt are all simply hilarious. This morning the agnostic Ace of Spades was even spouting scripture.
When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.
So were many others. Google "Proverbs 29:9" with "Biden" and count the number of hits.
