This Might Be Must-See TV

Oh boy. Sheriff Joe is under some serious pressure. And not just from trying to remember where he left his anti-psychotic pills before the debate. The media is in dire need of some good news and they're not afraid who knows it.  Especially when they're giving advice (and here) on how to beat the Republicans (but don't you dare call them biased!). I would have assumed that as long as Biden didn't walk out with his hand SuperGlued to his face, the MSM would have been happy. I guess not. Apparently, Joe is supposed to win back Obama's stolen honor and return the polls back to their rightful order. Because that's how awesome he is and that's how things are supposed to be.

Oh, by the way, remember when Biden said the middle class has been buried for the last four years? Pepperidge Farms remembers. And Joe wasn't even under pressure when he said that. In fact he hasn't been under pressure for any of the stupid things he's said. Which has me rubbing my greedy little hooves together waiting for the debate.

So who's going to "win"? No idea. But expect zingers. And not those twinkie-like things even if they are really good and better than regular twinkies. This will be the first big opportunity for voters to see Paul Ryan, who's like a cross between an adorable puppy and that straight-A student accountant who got you money back from the IRS when you were supposed to be audited. But, as someone on Twitter said, "You can't debate crazy", which clearly gives the advantage to Biden.

So yeah, I'll be tuning in. I'm expecting Ryan to do well but I'm also expecting some good ol' fashion group-think overcompensation by someone who doesn't even do well when he's on cruise control. Don't disappoint me, Joe.

Oh, and in related news, "Tebow time" has officially entered the modern lexicon.
