A debate idea

Shockingly, I have had no luck getting details on the debate last night from Facebook. Everybody just wants to talk about Biden's smile (which is apparently a bad thing... which is odd... because I thought that it helped Romney the other week).

I have a solution for this obsession with style over substance: All debates from now on must be conducted as puppet shows.

The candidates can negotiate over whether they can hire puppeteers or whether they have to man the puppets while they are debating.

Bonus electoral college seats will be awarded for ventriloquism.

  1. Once you get past the style and look at the substance, Biden stomped on Ryan repeatedly.

    From the point of view of economists it is interesting that Romney / Ryan are running around saying that there are six studies that say their plan will work since there actually is no Romney plan to study. The studies supporting Romney make all sorts of impossible assumptions (that Romney would never endorse) to get even close to constructing a hypothetical plan. The core Republican policy is just smoke and mirrors.
