>When Mr. Biden met Mrs. Nasty

>Well, that was a debate!

90 minutes and she didn’t answer any questions.

Like a robot with a beehive.

Still enjoyable.

While we were all supposedly (given the hype surrounding it) interested in seeing how Mrs. Nasty performed, I found myself more impressed by Biden. Granted, I was already in his column, but he informed me more about his abilities and qualities–as well as Obama’s*–during this debate than in any coverage I had seen about him previously.

* I think better than Obama himself, actually.

The debate seemed to suggest that we were moving into a new America, but when Gwen Ifill asked both candidates about gay marriage, it was clear that this country remains tethered to much of the bigotry of the past.

The more things change….
