Biden continually interrupts Ryan in a way I find incredibly annoying

Biden continually interrupts Ryan in a way I find incredibly annoying. By Ann Althouse.

I’m rereading my live-blogging of the October 11, 2012 debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. It’s making me view Trump’s debate behavior in a different way. I hated the way Biden treated the very polite, earnest Midwesterner Ryan. …

Debating Trump, Biden got a big serving of what he dished out 8 years ago.

Ryan did a fantastic job of maintaining his cool, staying substantive, and going high when Biden went low. And then he lost the election.

I’m sure Biden would have been willing to do what he did in 2012 and be completely rude and irritating as hell once again, but he’s 8 years older, and, more importantly, Donald Trump is not Paul Ryan. Trump is Trump, and Trump saw the ultra-polished and polite Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan go down to defeat.

It’s only rude and about tone when the right does it.
