The debate last night brought to mind an old joke my dad told me after I "came of Age"....

There were two Bulls, one older and one just now realizing his maleness, standing on a bluff overlooking the grazing land which was chuck full of cows...

The young one was obviously antsy as he looked down on all those potential sexual conquest and said to the older Bull, "Old man, let's run down there and fuck one of those cows down there..."

The older, wiser bull replied, "Go ahead, you run right down there and waste all that energy so you can F***only one of those cows before you get all tired out. Me. well, I'm gonna walk down and F*** as many as I like..."

Ryan is a young man in a hurry and far to enamored with himself to be trusted to be anywhere near the power of the American Presidency.

So, in the long run, the VP debate won't change the dynamics of the race because people ultimately vote for the president and not the VP. What the exchanges between the VP and the congressman revealed was Ryan has a shallow understanding of how government and the private sector should mesh. His insistence that trickle down theory is still the way to go even though it has proved disastrous for the US economy time and time again is, to me at least, a definition of insanity.

Vice President Biden laid out the Obama economic plan in an easy to understand way by just saying the role of government is to smooth the way for those who, through no fault of their own, have been traumatized by economic change that has swept away the nest eggs they thought were safe.

There is very a stark difference between the GOP government is always wrong and the the private sector is always right and the Democrats approach that government should be a player not in hindering capitalism but by trying to humanize what often turns into a brutal assault on the lives of those who got in the way.

2. I love that joke. I didn't appreciate it until I got older, but it's a good analogy.
