Post-Debate Wrap Up

Posted by KingShamus on October 12, 2012

Well, what did I tell you?

Here, in case you forgot my amazing analysis, let me quote a post I wrote three hours ago.

Quick Prediction:  Paul Ryan is going to do do well, but Sheriff Joe is sure to get a few cheap shots in.  Upon witnessing Biden’s awesome verbal prowess, progressive blogs collectively cream their jeans at the Vice-President ‘getting tough’ on the Wisconsin congressman.  The rest of the leftstream press will play up even the slightest Biden zinger as the second coming of Cannae.  Watch for Chris Matthews talking about his thrilling leg-tingles again.  Try not to watch Excitable Andy Sullypants get thrilling tingles south of his belt buckle.

Watching PMSNBC, the socialists were very stoked that Joe Biden came out swinging.  They loved it when Biden interrupted Paul Ryan 60 some-odd times.  Every Biden zinger was a master-stroke of strategeriffic brilliance.  Every eye-roll was a sarcastic rebuke of those eeeeeevil reich-wing Rethuglicans.

So here, courtesy of the RNC, is the Slow Joe that so captivated the hearts and loins of the statist caucus.

The problem with this awesomely awesome debate performance is two-fold.  Biden’s giggling over things like the Benghazi terrorist attack and Medicare shitting the mattress may seem like zany hi-jinks to the leftists watching the debate.  But contrary to the liberal conventional wisdom, most people don’t respond well to a horse-toothed geriatric laughing his ass off every time somebody speaks.  Only people who are already on Team Obama’s bandwagon will respond positively to Biden’s nonsense.

Furthermore, Biden’s attack-dog act can’t be replicated by Barack Obama.  Likability is the last ace the president has left to play.  The Kos Kooks desperately want Barry to turn the next debate into an MMA slugfest.  They crave red meat, especially now that Obama is getting shellacked in some of the swing states.  However, if Obama starts getting angry, he’ll lose the one advantage–and it’s a fading one at that–he has over Romney.

Don’t get it twisted.  In the right situations, a candidate can look strong and raise their profile if he talks tough against his opponent.  For ultra-partisans, it can be emotionally cathartic to watch their preferred candidate get mad during a stump speech.  The faithful need to see their leaders get as passionate as they are about the important issues of the day.

But Barry can’t treat a televised debate like a campaign stump speech.  He cannot give in to his maniac base.  He’ll turn into an unlikable dickbag, Romney will appear like a grown-up and this race will be over before the debate ends.

The Democrats had a nice night because they will respond positively to Joe Biden’s oafish blustering.  The vice president  probably stopped some of the bleeding in the demoralized Donkey-Puncher base.  That has to count for something.

Paul Ryan did well enough making a pitch to moderates and conservatives.  He wasn’t at his best, but he did pretty good considering he was fighting against Biden and the moderator.

Unaffiliated voters won’t be horrified by Ryan.  They will be very turned off by the Chuckling Joe.  In the next few days, Ryan’s shortcomings will seem less negative.  Biden’s goofy demeanor will stick around and be talked about over the next few days.  It might not hurt the Obama campaign in the long run, but it won’t win them any fans that they didn’t already have.

Paul Ryan and Joe Biden Do The Thunderdome Two-Step Tonight

Posted by KingShamus on October 11, 2012

You know where I’ll be.

My twitter feed is your friend.

Quick Prediction:  Paul Ryan is going to do do well, but Sheriff Joe is sure to get a few cheap shots in.  Upon witnessing Biden’s awesome verbal prowess, progressive blogs collectively cream their jeans at the Vice-President ‘getting tough’ on the Wisconsin congressman.  The rest of the leftstream press will play up even the slightest Biden zinger as the second coming of Cannae.  Watch for Chris Matthews talking about his thrilling leg-tingles again.  Try not to watch Excitable Andy Sullypants get thrilling tingles south of his belt buckle.

Martha Raddatz, the Dollar Store version of Diane Sawyer, is sure to be a big help for Team Barry.  I know some folks on our side want to play up the big conflict of interest, but nobody inside the liberal hive mind cares, so whatevs I guess.  I’m sure the Democrats would be super-stoked if it was a Fox News dude having such a cozy relationship with the sitting President.  [sarc/]

No, what I’m annoyed about is that Martha Raddatz is the best moderator the debate organizers could get.  The woman is a walking Daily Kos concern-troll.  Here is the stink-face she puts on whenever her dainty widdle ears pick up a political statement to the right of Noam Chomsky.

“OMFG!  YOU WANT TO CUT TAXES?  WHY DO YOU REICH-WINGERS LOVE KICKING BABIES?!?!?!?!?!?!!!11111111eleventy!”

This wacky broad’s entire career has been built on soft-socialist do-gooder bullshit.  Every story she writes assumes that the Democrats are the saviors, while and the GOP is riddled with crypto-Nazis, knuckle-dragging Bible thumpers and pollution-loving corporate raiders.  ABC News can whine all they want about her bulletproof objectivity, but everybody knows she’s a leftist.  Everyone, that is, except the Republicans who didn’t object to Raddatz being the moderator for this debate.

Oh well.

Speaking of the debate, Manhattan Infidel has an inside scoop on Joe Biden’s intense preparations for tonight’s showdown.

In Vice President Biden’s camp, optimism reigns.

“We are going to crush Ryan” said an aide who wishes to remain anonymous.

Joe Biden is one of the intellectual lights of the Democratic Party.  He’s a deep thinker and an expert in foreign policy.  That’s where we are going to attack Ryan.  We’ve been in intense mock debates the past few days and the Vice President is more than ready.   He knows all the answers.  Why I just finished asking him who the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe was.  He replied, “Some guy” which, technically, is the correct answer.  So you see, we are very confident.  I just wish the debate was scheduled for earlier in the evening as we don’t like to keep the Vice President up past his bed time.

Read the rest.  Da Infidel kills it.

See you all in the Twitterverse.
