Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Barbara_

    Let's all meet back here tonight and get our drink on! I'm buying!

    • Boojum

      Are you buying plane tickets? Because I'm in!

      • Barbara_

        In honor of Joe, I am buying Amtrak tickets. All aboard!

        • Boojum

          Does Amtrak run all the way out there?

          • Mahousu

            In the same way it runs all the way anywhere.

            In other words, you have a 50/50 chance of actually making it. But it's a fun trip if you don't care when or if you arrive.

          • Boojum

            If I can drink the whole time, who cares when I get there?

    • nounverb911

      Are you still in the States or do I need my passport?

      • Barbara_

        I'm still in the states for now.

    • Pragmatist2

      Damn! If I knew you were buying I would have held off. Well, actually, probably not.

      • Barbara_

        Pragmatist2, take a nap and come back. We won't start the party without you.

        • Pragmatist2

          Does passing out count as a nap? I'm a senior citizen and these things are not as clear as they used to be.

    • Baconzgood

      I'll take 10 boiler makers. Oh and Make me another boiler maker.

    • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

      Waaaay ahead of you. But thanks!

    • Callyson

      Hearing Sarah Palin talk about Joe Six Pack is giving me a craving…I'm in!

    • UW8316154

      …I've got some dope. I'll bring it if anyone is interested…..

      • finallyhappy

        What, Sarah is at your house?

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      "The Shining" Invisible Drinks for everybody!!

    • ibwilliamsi

      I say we do a shot each time someone says "Wonky".

    • YouBetcha

      I'm pregnant.

      So make mine a double.

    • rocktonsam

      what time does thing start tonight? I got to get to bed early and not go to work in the morning

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    I'm worried that, if you all start drunk blogging during Biden's debate, all manners of perversion will break out.

    Wait. What's the opposite of "worried"? Not worried, hoping.

    • cousinitt

      That's what we're hoping from Biden.

    • mrpuma2u

      Like we need any libations to break out the obscenities here.

    • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

      Not "hoping" but "assured".

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      Well it looks like we're off to a good start!

  • Baconzgood

    I can't watch the debate. The Steelers are playing tonight. Priorities people! I also have to buy shoe polish and smokes.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      And hobo beans

      • Baconzgood

        No hobo beans for Baconz. Start my new jerb Monday. This means I wont have as much time to wonk off. (*Sniffle*). But it pays almost 25% more. So I have to actually do work and not show up drunk after lunch…not until I put in a few years there.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Yay, we has a rich Baconz! Don't forget to throw some $$ at ActBlue For Teh Cuntry, dood. I'll miss you in the daytime. But I'll probably actually get to see you more if you check in in the evenings, which is usually when I check in (your time) anyway.

        • Jus_Wonderin

          "So I have to actually do work and not show up drunk after lunch…not until I put in a few years there."

          Tenure/Seniority does have its advantages. I have been here long enough I can be drunk all afternoon. I just have to make sure I sober up before I drive to the Liquor Store.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            This is where yon ambitious subalterns come in so handy, dear.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Go get yer shine box. Can Joe beat down Ryan any worse than the Steelers are going to beat down the Flaming Thumbtacks?

      • Baconzgood

        I'm not sure what that means but I'm going to take it as you saying that the STILLERS ARE GONNA KICK ASS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YINZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • UW8316154

          Stillers? Aren't they a NASCAR team out of Tennessee?

    • GregComlish

      Baconz is too busy polishing knobs and smoking poles?

      • Baconzgood

        Don't hate the playah hate the gamez! Don't judge me too also.

        • GregComlish

          I am judging your pole smoking abilities.

          Performance: satisfactory
          Attitude: satisfactory
          Neatness: needs improvement

          • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

            Look man, the only judging in that event is "spit/swallow"…

    • Callyson

      Bummer…I've got a buddy who is TiVo'ing the game so I'll catch it after the debate. GO STEELERS!

    • ibwilliamsi

      That's what PIP is for!

    • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Johnny-Appletruth/133951326629923?sk=wall deanbooth

      And, since I'm a tivoer, may I ask that no one mention scores tonight. Since it's the Steelers, I won't be able to read balloon juice until I'm finished.

      • GunToting[Redacted]

        Ben Rothl Roethl Rothlisbeu The Steelers QB just got a 15 yard penalty for attempted rape.

    • LePiston

      We have a classy tv on top of tv set up in our living room. Geaux Aze!!!!! My boyfriend is going to have to deal with no volume on his set for the game.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I wonder if Ryan will give us a wink. It worked so well for Sarah.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      He'll flex

      (reference New Listings on Wonkville)

      • BaldarTFlagass

        I've never gone there. What happens?

        • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

          Lemme put it this way: it's easier if you're nude already, but it won't really matter unless you like your clothes.

      • T3rbo

        He will actually flex and kiss his biceps, Hulk Hogan style. And then he will nail his friends wife, on the internet. Hulk Hogan style.

    • StillGoinGreen

      I'll bet he jumps from a tall light stand, loses his feather, then hears from Mittens that it was never magic, then flaps his ears and flies around the room – giving hope to all the the boys and girls of the world. Either that, or lies his fucking face off.

  • http://redstatepinko.blogspot.com/ RedStatePinko

    Just put the wink on infinite loop.

  • Indiepalin

    Ryan hit it out of the park tonight.

    • Radiotherapy

      In under three hours.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I'd rather stick hot knitting needles in my eyes and ears than listen to that screechy harpy.

    • http://redstatepinko.blogspot.com/ RedStatePinko

      By whom I HOPE you don't mean Tina Fey.

    • IncenseDebate

      Especially when he starts talking about Ayn Rand.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Insufficient Upfists In Universe.

      • T3rbo

        Uh, no. That will be the best part. Because Ayn Rand was insane and had a very, uh, interesting philosophy. I would love for that harpy to start quoting her nonsense

        The moral cannibalism of all hedonist and altruist doctrines lies in the premise that the happiness of one man necessitates the injury of another=what the fuck?

  • Boojum

    I want to see Uncle Joey drilling Marathon Man's teeth.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Is that safe?

    • Generation[redacted]

      I never got to the end of that movie. Was Dustin Hoffman okay?

      • Boojum

        No. He went on to make Ishtar.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Why? WHY did you have to remind me?

          I was FORCED to watch that once, on an exceedingly long and boring flight. It was either that or stab my eyes out with a leaky rollerball.

  • HempDogbane

    She needs those shoulder pads now more than ever.

    • mille derps

      I thought she shifted them to her bra?

  • coolhandnuke

    I'll be prepping myself by watching my Dick Cheney video "How to drunkenly hunt lawyers."

  • http://wonkette.com ChillBill

    Sarah was so FAT back then!

    • kittensdontlie

      And comments like yours made her skinny today. Has she thanked you yet?

      • http://wonkette.com ChillBill

        No, she was actually physically healthy back then.

        (We are still a snark site, right?)

        • kittensdontlie

          Sorry…you got caught in friendly snark-fire.

  • http://www.marionstein.net Self-Uploader

    Actually have tickets for something tonight and won't be able to watch live, but will check in to Wonkette for the skinny before I watch.

    • Mittaplasia

      Me, too, for a rain-or-shine outdoor concert and there are thunderstorms in the area; ratz!

  • OkieDokieDog

    I hope Uncle Joe mops the floor with that little whippersnapper twatwaffle.

  • CrunchyKnee

    I hope that Ryan asks if he can call him Joe.

    • Pragmatist2

      And Biden replies "Sure, if I can call you "Clueless Asshole.""

    • FNMA

      And Joe will reply, "Sure, Junior."

    • Generation[redacted]

      Ryan, you may call me "Thank you sir and may I have another."

    • Boojum

      "No, but you can call and congratulate me after the election, Sport."

    • BoroPrimorac

      I got your Joe right here, pal.

  • FakaktaSouth

    Oh my goodness, here we go. I don't WANT Paul Ryan to wink, I want him to throw up on himself, then stone cold faint out, something befitting the dignity of his policies. And I want Joe to laugh at him while rubbing his ball sack on Paul's forehead chanting "you will not kill medicare you son of a bitch." See Chet? My expectations aren't too high?

    • BaldarTFlagass

      I wonder what percentage of occurrence Nate Silver gives that.

      • Boojum

        I don't know, but now I wish I believed in the power of prayer, because a beneficent God would make this happen.

        • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

          Maybe I'm just weird, but I do not want to see Biden's nutsack, nor see it anywhere near Ryan's creepy face.

    • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

      I don't WANT Paul Ryan to wink, I want him to throw up on himself, then stone cold faint out. .. And I want Joe to laugh at him while rubbing his ball sack on Paul's forehead

      Awright where is the "Fall in love with FakaktaSouth all over again" thread — because I just did, I think… even though I'm straight… not to mention spoken for.. *checks watch* still at work so not drunk yet..
      SING IT, sister! and Amen.

      • prommie

        Oh hell, I fall in love with her all over again daily. She's a stone genius, on top of all else and such. Hilarious.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Well, I'm pretty sure she's *not* stoned, but yeah, all the rest.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

      Girl.

      And that is ALL I'm gonna say.

    • prommie

      Oh hell if he does the laying on of nutsack on that marathon liar, then there has to be some more than just more momentous celebratory form of toasting we will have to come up with, I mean for our debate "drinking" game. More, just more.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Raw oysters and champagne. Sake hot and cold by the bucket.

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      Ms. Promzarelli, you have left me speechless.

    • prommie

      Honey you left out pissing his pants, shitting the bed, and the best of all, you know he's gonna throw some kind of affronted whiny little man temper tantrum out there and Joe is gonna goad him on and taunt him just by smiling that big old Handsome Joe condescending smile. Man I hates some whiny little man temper tantrums, but the good thing about them is they reveal the shitheadedness of their thrower to one and all at last.

      • FakaktaSouth

        All I can hope is that Paul tells us all what his "really hard to explain with math" numbers are in some newer stupider contentious way and that Joe tells him to stop acting like it's such a big fucking deal to be honest and just admit the fucking truth about for whom he makes his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad policies. For ONCE.

        • prommie

          I'm telling ya, there will be mention of his marathon time, and all the mountains he's climbed too.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            No way, Runners' World totally PWND his ass on that. And also too the mountains.

          • FakaktaSouth

            We're hoping it's OHJoe that brings it up, natch. We want for him to ask him if his medicare policy is as phoney and made up out of whole cloth as his running times or some such tacky thing. We want blood and sputtering and embarrassment. Because, Fuck Paul Ryan.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            OHJoe sounds SOOO sexxxay! Especially when you say it in that gin-laden tone of voice.

            I love when you talk dirty to me, girl. Blood and sputtering? I dream!

    • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

      I'll be surprised if poor Paul stays for the whole debate.

    • mrpuma2u

      That gets my vote for comment of the day. The muse was upon you, sister. 7,002 virtual upfists to you.

  • nounverb911

    There's still time for Ryan to chicken out and go Galt.

  • http://rightthinkingamerican.blogspot.com johnnyzhivago

    Is Paul Ryan planning to wink at us???

    Will he make the editors of the NRO blush????????

  • Doktor Zoom

    I have to work tonight, dammit. Lousy stoopid divorcing people and their lousy stoopid mandatory "how to co-parent without fucking up your children more than you already have" class. (If the nanny state didn't interfere so much in citizens' lives, I could be free to read the liveblog tonight…)

    • http://www.themindisaterriblething.com skmind

      Well if you don't have to watch, then I am not watching either.

      Mom, Zoom is looking at me, tell him to stop looking at me…MOM

    • mrpuma2u

      I feel your pain. Had to do that crap when my first marriage busted up. At least your ex-wife hasn't accused you of child abuse (yet).

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        I think Dok and the ex-Mrs. Dok are friends, and co-conspirators in the loving raising of Kid Dok.

        Which is as it should be.

        I'm very sorry you had a nasty experience in that regard.

      • Doktor Zoom

        Yes, as Mittborg notes, I've mentioned elsewhere that my own divorce was peachy. I But I have to *work* the friggin' class tonight and help people with paperwork, possibly iron out details of their parenting plans.

        See, if I had made the right choices and been an investment banker, I could just stay home and watch the debate with my money.

        • Boojum

          Can you do parenting plans for people who AREN'T divorced?

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Or divorce classes for people who aren't parenting?

    • prommie

      We should form a wonkette sub-group, we could call ourselves "divorced from reality" or some shit.

      • FakaktaSouth

        As long as that D-word is in there, I am happy happy happy to join.

        • prommie

          Oh baby we are the founders!

      • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

        HA! my ex husband's second wife (i was the first and we had no kids) did that to him.

        he was a total pain in the ass but no child molester.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Suddenly, I feel like, stupid and clueless as I've been most of my long life, I have been one of the luckiest people in the world. I'm still quite close to nearly all my ex-partners, although we don't necessarily spend time with each other any more.

          How awful to be accused of such a heinous crime by the person who ought to love you best and have your interests at heart.

          • mrpuma2u

            Thanks, I appreciate that, truly. The experience did in fact suck Beluga whales. I survived, but my relationship with the ex did not. It's still a hair away from daggers drawn. Marriage 2.0 is going much better.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            I'm very glad to hear that, mrpuma! (Hugs you)

          • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

            me TOO! close to all my ex's! i know about my ex husband b/c he came to me for help. we actually talk a fair amount and he's helped me out (and mr. fuflans – partner of 15 years) and i've helped him.

            his second wife was psychotic and rich and utterly vindictive. she totally ruined him (financially, reputation-ally, left him with an under-water million dollar property), though he IS bouncing back.

            i would so hate that. though i imagine it can be hard to avoid in many cases.

      • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

        Reality was emotionally abusing me so reality and I divorced a long time ago. Since then I have taken out numerous restraining orders against it.

        • prommie

          And reality is so fucking ugly, too.

          • FakaktaSouth

            Meh, reality is for those who haven't discovered the wonders of gin.

        Good god, can you believe these people THINK like this? They're mad. There's no other way to describe their hideous reality.

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    Dammit, one of the reasons I voted [edit: in 2008] was so I'd never have to see another Sarah Palin debate. Besides, I've got Jeopardy to watch and then litterboxes to clean out, and then probably dinner because drinking 1.5 liters of Chardonnay on an empty stomach would be a bad idea.

    For tonight I'm just hoping Paul Ryan finally ditches his electric razor or just learns how to shave. His preternaturally pale face with its permanent five-o'clock shadow doesn't mean boyish enthusiasm so much as a 19-year-old on his first job interview. The fact that his inability to add makes him "the serious one" just makes me crave seeing him suffer a beat-down of historic proportions all the more.

    • mrpuma2u

      Just go steal a bag of fun size snickers, they go great with Chardonnay.

      • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

        Yeah, that'll be great for the spins. I'm gonna stick with my snack of choice, thank you.

        • mrpuma2u

          Something marginally good for you? pshaw…
          Due to budgetary restrictions I will most likely be imbibing Diet Dr. Pepper with rum, which I have dubbed "Dr's Orders"

          • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

            They're also ridiculously hot and go well with white wine, whereas Diet Dr. Pepper tastes like licking a children's playground set doused in cough medicine and goes well with spinal meningitis.

          • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

            Well, when you put it that way… um, pass the Chardonnay?

          • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

            And I've got ginger ale if you want to bring the Bulleit over.

          • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

            ok but you can keep the wasabi snacks. unless you wanna see my "uh-o" face~

          • GunToting[Redacted]

            EEEK. Bulleit libel! That stuff is too good for anything other than a couple of rocks.

          • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

            Oh, it's definitely great by itself — but purity is for l'Academie Francaise. Besides if we played a drinking game with straight up Bulleit I'd be dead in an hour.

          • GunToting[Redacted]

            Good point.

          • mrpuma2u

            Ooh the wasabe edamame? Those are tasty.

          • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

            Hell yeah — even better, about every tenth one is much hotter than average, so there's a little surprise in every handful.

        I'd settle for scouring powder. And the 12" special with the enormous girth, from Good Vibrations. Paul would look SO good in black leather restraints, don't you think? With silver studs?

        • BaldarTFlagass

          Oooh, maybe a (symbolic) beatdown with a 15" black rubber double-ended dildo, like Harry the Hatchet in Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels. That'd be cool.

    If we're lucky Ryan will show up to the debate wearing the red "bro cap" that he wore in that photoshoot, backwards, because CURLS, bro.

        Dear God I knew he was a douchebag tool, but wow.

      • Generation[redacted]

        WTF, is he auditioning for VP or Jersey Shore?!

        • T3rbo

          he's one of those people that is likable with sleeves, but once he wears a shirt with short sleeves or no sleeves, you know you will not like the guy. I have no idea what it is. I hate Paul Ryan's arms.

          • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

            No, that face is not "likeable," sleeves or sleeveless.

          He heard that the Beastie Boys might have an opening.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        He's ugly as sin.

        • mille derps

          But sin can be downright attractive…

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            Oh, no, cher. The *lures* that lead us into sin can be very attractive. Sin itself (as defined as violence against any living thing) is not.

            But that's my opinionated old cranky opinion, and how DO you do?

          • mille derps

            Gluttony, sloth, lust?

            But I grew up without any Christian blathering about sin, so I don't really take the concept too seriously. My morality doesn't involve notions of 'sin', but has more to do with reasoning about right & wrong…

            I'm doing just fine- my sweetie just went to get us some take-out Thai food- yum!

            How about you?

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            I come from a different religious tradition. Sin is that which causes suffering, either to oneself or to other living beings. Outside of that there is no sin. Thus, sloth is only sinful if such sloth causes one to neglect minor children or a needy spouse/parent. Under the right circumstances sloth can be divine (see, e.g., Valmiki, legend of).

            While looking for things to ease my pain, I came across a fine, forgotten stash of something reddish-purple, that goes by the name of Lucid Dream. My, but it's fine. Though I wish the debate would start.

  • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

    Hey, wow, BossLady, you sure are getting crabby. Don't worry, BeccaLou. Old Handsome Joe Biden still loves you, you know that! Watch him piss all over Ryan tonight. And then wipe his dick in that hair.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I hope he shows up for the debate in his freshly-washed Trans Am.

  • T3rbo

    Yeah, it's not going to be this cute. Remember how everyone was talking about how Biden couldn't be condescending or too mean, as Palin was a woman? Paul Ryan is not a woman, so Biden can go after the guy, and he will. If he can.
    The question is, will Ryan tell the truth or not? Is Biden prepared to deal with Romney Plan A (moderate) or Romney Plan B (Tea Party), or a combination of both? Will there be a Romney Plan C, with totally new made up and undocumented details, that Biden is unprepared for?

    • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

      i remember it also as: he couldn't be too mean b/c she was too 'inexperienced' (read: dumb).

      no such limitations here. however, i do NOT think this will be easy.

      i hope i'm wrong.

      • T3rbo

        I think Ryan will just try to keep the Biden from flaring up. They must expect Joe to go on the offensive, so they probably prepped Ryan to just repeat the same bullshit talking points over and over again and run out the clock. It'll be like Rocky, but less entertaining, and I bet the media is going to spin a Ryan non-loss in to a victory,in order to keep the narrative compelling. I don't remember the dominant media meme from the Palin debate at all?

    • synykyl

      … The question is, will Ryan tell the truth or not? …

      I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that Ryan will not tell the truth.

      • T3rbo

        Sure, he is going to tell his version of the truth. The media will not pay attention to the fact that the truth keeps changing, but is that really the most important thing in the debate? You and I may think that the truth is some kind of constant, but that's why we are only tangentially involved in these debates and not on television. The question is, who will have the better abs in the debate?

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Yeah, that prophecy would be really a stretch, wouldn't it?

  • Blueb4sinrise

    To be fair, Palin is an idiot.

    • T3rbo

      To be fair, Ryan bases his ideology on a NOVEL. In middle school, I didn't read Stephen King's Pet Cemetery and dedicate my life to making sure people stopped building cemeteries on top of sacred native burial grounds, but here we are.

      I am a man who does not exist for others-The Fountainhead

      • T3rbo

        On the other hand, Biden should just speak in Ayn Rand quotes and relate them to W's deficit running war mongering party of values, it will completely confuse Ryan
        On the economic crisis:
        Look around you: what you have done to society, you have done it first within your soul; one is the image of the other. This dismal wreckage, which is now your world, is the physical form of the treason you committed to your values, to your friends, to your defenders, to your future, to your country, to yourself-Atlas Shrugged

        • LibertyLover

          Now, THAT would be a debate worth watching. I look forward to that in the rematch in 2016 of Ryan vs Biden for the top spot.

    Baconz's sure gonna miss the Wonketters. Tomorrow is my last day of slack at work. The Bob Dobbs philosophy has gotten me pretty far with this clients and my company. But alas, all good things must come to an end. I find not being on Wonkette difficult to masterbate to. The new jerb is probally gonna make me work for my money like a common serf that's expected to do things other than snark and drink gin durring my down time at work. Iz haz teh sadz. It took me years to scare the shit out of other coworkers. They wouldn't snitch on me for fear of retaliation (like putting dead birds randomly in thier office, down loading then e-mailing bizarre Dutch pornography to everyone in the building from their terminal, or setting fire to a jelly jar full of oregano in thier office-to make it smell like bong hits- while they were at lunch.)

    I've snarked and pranked in the office things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to take a new jerb.

          I grew up in Texas until I traded the perpetually losing Rangers for the perpetual losing Mariners.

At least the Rangers made it all the way to the end a couple of times, I'm still waiting for the M's to do the same…

            (2) Why does the Ballpark in Arlington only serve boneless Buffalo wings? Because the Rangers are afraid they might choke!

    • T3rbo

      I'll summarize the debate for you:

      Ryan, opening speech: WE MUST CUT TAXES IN ORDER TO FUND OUR SCHOOLS!

      Biden opening speech: We must fund our schools in order to fund our schools

      Ryan: Obama is a black

      Biden: Obama is black, and a woman at heart

      Ryan: We must save social security and Medicare by destroying it

      Biden: Kids today…

      Ryan: Everything that I was for while in congress, I was against, because, Obama

      Biden: You have no shame, sir

      Ryan: You have no shame, look how you ruined the economy, with your mortgage crisis, and your Iraq War, which we should never have ended!

      Biden: We are killing the Quedas as hard as we can, all day long…

      Ryan, closing speech: Ladies and gentlemen, why are you not at work right now?

      Biden, closing speech: My fellow Americans, I am sorry for all of the blood and eye gouges. I am sorry you had to see that…

  • cognachas4paws

    Just saw on the news that Paul Ryan wants to be referred to as Mr. Ryan during the debate – he doesn't want to be called Congressman so he isn't associated with our current Congress, of which he is a card-carrying member, on account of their bad approval rating. What a wuss.

    • T3rbo

      I want to be regarded as "your majesty," but it ain't gonna happen. I wonder if Biden honors the honorable Congressman's wishes?

      • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

        I also wonder if "Democrat" Senator Biden, who spoke at the "Democrat" convention will agree to Congressman Ryan's request.

    • Generation[redacted]

      Will "8% approval rating Congressman Ryan" be an acceptable compromise?

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      He can want, but I suspect Joe will zing him hard if he tries asking.

      "Ashamed, Congressman?"

      • cognachas4paws

        The answer to that would be "no" because he has no shame, which would, coincidentally, be the first and only time Ryan has told the truth during this campaign.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

      Might I suggest instead of Mr. Ryan: "Frank Fallopian the Flim-Flam Flying Fuckwad?" This would prevent people from associating Congressman Ryan in ways he hopes to avoid.
