I missed the debate — thank goodness

Posted by Richard on October 11, 2012

After four years of mostly trouble-free performance, my Dish VIP722 DVR receiver chose tonight to flake out. So instead of watching the vice presidential debate, I spent much of the evening exhausting my diagnostic and troubleshooting skills (which, IMHO, are pretty darn good) and eventually throwing myself on the mercy of Dish technical support. Which is really very good, once you get past the Tier 1 people who initially take your call. Long story short, they restored the receiver to service just in time for me to see the post-debate analysis.

Based on the clips I saw and commentary I heard (CBS and Fox News), it’s a good thing I missed it. I couldn’t take 90 whole minutes of Biden’s laughing, sneering, eye-rolling, and belittling of Ryan.

And it seems that Biden was abetted throughout by moderator Martha Raddatz. Big surprise. ABC’s “objective, impartial journalist” is a leftist hack and a shill for the Obama administration, and not just because Barack Obama was a guest at her wedding 20 years ago. Why the GOP continues to allow debates (both in the primaries and now in the general election) to be moderated by their ideological enemies without so much as a peep of protest is beyond me.

UPDATE: Ryan won according to “snap” polls by CNN and CNBC. A CBS poll of “undecided” voters gave the win to Biden.
