NEVER MIND A CLOSE ANALYSIS OF WHAT THE VP CANDIDATES SAID. INSTEAD LET’S ANALYZE SOME MEANINGLESS STATISTICS AND FACIAL EXPRESSIONS.

I’m gonna keep this short because, well, I’m gonna keep this short.

I think Ryan lied several times last night when talking about Social Security, Medicare, the budget and taxes.

On the other hand, Biden phumphered (that’s a made-up word that means what it sounds like) on the issue of the embassy security in Libya.

Tragically, much of the post-mortem on CNN was meaningless, or worse. Has not one reporter caught on that Biden was not "smirking?" He was clearly laughing heartily – as well he might – at the lies and misinformation that Ryan was propagating. The stuff coming out of Ryan’s mouth was often so off-the-wall it was funny.

Was that a sign of “disrespect?” Well, if Mr. Ryan wants more respect, he might try telling the truth.

But CNN (and Wolf Blitzer) really got my goat when, after the debate, Blitzer hauled out some giant graphics showing the number of minutes and seconds each candidate talked about each subject. This was in order to enlighten us about what?

I’ll never know, because that’s when I snapped off my TV and went to bed gnashing my teeth.

I was impressed with Biden's restraint. He never actually reached across the desk to smack the living daylights out of that smug little weasel, though God knows he must have been tempted. Repeatedly.

I kept waiting for Joe to forget about saying "Malarkey," and go straight to "BULLSHIT!!!"

CNN takes no stances – and ALL stances.
It is the “Cowardly News Network.”

I have more respect for FOX.

Sure, they look at politics through their own particular pair of white lightining goggles, but that’s better than the Cowardly News Network, CNN, which puts on blinders that don’t let it see the whole picture, it only lets it see things through the DC Villager lenses of a badly-poured 'half-and-half' - “both sides… blah-dee-blah-blah-blah.”

Somewhere, I'm sure that Ted Turner is hoping someone shoots him sometime soon, just so he can spin in his grave 24 X 7 X 365, like the network he created spins horsesh*t out of horse race results.

CNN is like having the brilliant child you gave birth to and raised, turn out to be a vicious sociopathic serial killer.

So the party that likened our president to a child telling fibs is butthurt because Joe laughed at Paul Ryan?
