Ze Frank summarizes the facts of the debate:
Paul Ryan’s hair does look like an accordion. Although I think the comparison to the slow loris is unfounded. The slow loris is much cuter than Paul Ryan, although I’m sure Paul Ryan has nicer abs than the slow loris.
Just look at it… it’s clearly part of the 47%.
There weren’t any terribly egregious errors. Mostly normal fact check problems on both sides like rounding numbers like 264 to 300 and using studies that are wrong.
I made a comment during the debate that Biden says they are “friends” like they go flyfishing every second Tuesday month and then go to the titty bar.
Now I have a mental image of Joe Biden saying “titty bar” and it’s hilarious.

A couple people checked my blog last night waiting for some re-tweets. I don’t have much really.
Joe Biden called Paul Ryan a liar in several euphemisms. And that’s exactly what everyone was saying he should do and has done. Rally the base, yadda yadda.
Paul Ryan looked like he wanted to cry. I’ve never seen a grown man cry during a debate.

1. Nate Silver is showing a significant bump for the Democrat’s after the DNC, much higher than the RNC’s bump.
Via NYT’s fivethirtyeight:
Electoral Vote Prediction
+10.4 since Aug. 31

Personally, I thought Jennifer Granholm’s speech was the best. She was one of the more rousing and animated speakers of the night.
5. Factcheck.org had to aggregate their analysis of Obama’s and Biden’s speeches, because apparently they each didn’t have enough exaggerations and out-of-context quotes to warrant posts of their own. (Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney each had their own posts from the RNC previously on factcheck.org)
6. As promised, song for Friday. This is seriously the best Gangnam Style mash-up I’ve seen yet:

“Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.” -Joe Biden, 2008
“Maybe he should say it again.” -Reddit, 2012
“Paul Ryan Shirtless.” Gross Internet.
Bee tee dubs, I just moved a lot of shit across state borders, so I’m going to reserve the right to be lazy this week about posting.
Also I put up ads, so don’t worry, you don’t have spyware, probably. They’re pretty unintrusive and I can take them down at anytime. Selling out feels pretty good.
