About The VP Debate......

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Yeah. See, I didn't watch it. What for? I know who I am going to vote for and no amount of grandstanding imagery is going to make me change my mind. Vice President Biden could have made a mockery of himself last night (which is probably what the Republicans are claiming this morning) and I'd still vote for him and Obama.

Instead, I went about Left Blogstonia and read the reactions of my fellow progressives. My first stop for analysis was over at Mother Jones. Kevin Drum is by far the worst person to go to for analysis. Or, if you approach it as I do, the best. Why? Because the man couldn't analyze his way out of a wet paper bag. He invariably gets it wrong. So, I read his take, turn it around 180 degrees, and I have what really happened. Oh, and both Steve Benen and Ed Kilgore are of the same cloth. At least in their initial reactions to events.

See, all three of them are great facts and figures bloggers. Especially Kevin. The man has a nose for facts and figures. But when it comes to event analysis, forget about it. They let their personal biases get in the way. They have the pearl-clutching reaction of OH. MY. GOD! They are hurting the other guys feelings. Which is ironic, considering that the other side proclaim victory when they think they've hurt our feelings. Arrogant bastards.

Now, when it comes to analysis, I like TPM and Charles Pierce. They have a clearer perception of events. At least, they have a better track record at pointing out the affect of events. TPM is at least civil about their analysis. Not so Charles. He comes from the guttural wing of the progressive movement. He is not afraid of hurting the other side's feelings. Actually, he seems to take great delight in causing any amount of red-face outrage. He might even go so far as declare victory. Arrogant bastard. If he was blogging from a personal blog instead of with a national magazine, I suspect the language would be even fouler than it already is at Esquire.

Of course, one of my favorite go-to bloggers for event analysis is BlueGal over at They gave us a republic..... Unfortunately, she has been silent for a while. Hopefully she will be healthy soon and resume her ranting and raving. It is missed.

Ultimately, from reading the progressive blogs, it looks like the perception of Left Blogstonia is that Biden won the debate last night, with Ryan looking all the more like a proby out of his league.

Oh, and Romney is a liar.
