This was a pretty intense debate. Certainly a much more substantive and engaging debate than the one in 2008. It's safe to say that Paul Ryan is the exact opposite of Sarah Palin, who is a simpering dolt.
The quick takeaway? Vice President Biden was a rude, boorish clown who couldn't stop laughing, smirking, and interrupting Paul Ryan. Other than that, they essentially fought to a draw. So overall, I'd give a slight edge to Ryan.
Sorry this post is so light. Busy, early day tomorrow. I'll make it up tomorrow.
