Opening Arguments

That empty chair is mine

A lot of Republicans are hoping for exactly that, Mr. President:

President Barack Obama has offered his take on the debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan, saying "Joe just needs to be Joe."

Of course, they probably don't agree with you on who the real Joe is, but, hey, that's politics for you.

Afraid I'm going to skip this partcicular debate. It's certain to have entertainment value, but I can take only so much politics in a given period, and I'm a little overwhelmed right now. You will have noticed that posting has been light lately. That's because so much of my time has been taken up interviewing candidates for the election -- if I hear "I just want to give something back to the community" one more time, I'll scream. The vice presidential debate really doesn't matter a whit in the long run, and it certainly won't effect how I'll vote. Easy call.
