Unlike President Obama, Joe Biden actually showed up for his debate with Paul Ryan last night in Danville, Ky., with the V.P. candidates putting on quite a display.
While both sides could take away plenty of political positives from the vice presidential debate, the general consensus was that it made for great TV.
Some of our favorite celebrity Twitter reactions appear below:
Dennis Miller: "Biden’s incessant smile is reminding me of the Cleveland Indian’s Hat Logo which is reminding me of baseball. Adios."
Donald Trump: "Pretty even debate- no knockouts. However Ryan's closing statement somewhat stronger. What do you think? #VPDebate"
So, Paul Ryan may be the next President of the United States. Vice President, we mean. Vice President of the United States.
While opinions spread around the country regarding Mitt Romney's running mate, let's go to Hollywood for the reaction of several celebrities to the news. All courtesy of Twitter...
Elizabeth Banks: "I can confirm categorically that I am NOT Mitt Romney's VP nominee. #gamechange."
Michael Ian Black: "Romney/Ryan = same initials as Ronald Reagan. THINK ABOUT IT!!!"
Andy Cohen: I really hope someone has the guts to ask Paul Ryan's stance on the KStew/RPatz situation in California. #NeedClarification
Sanjay Gupta: #43 on the list of things that make you feel old: the VP candidate is younger than you are. paul ryan was born in 1970.
Eva Longoria: Romney's VP pick voted against equal pay for women and repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. We can't go backward.
Michael Moore: Channeling Bush, war supporters/military dodgers Romney and Ryan insult those who served by using battleship as their prop.
Rupert Murdoch: Thank God! Now we might have a real election on the great issues of the day. Paul Ryan almost perfect choice.
Andy Richter: I think saying "worst recovery in 70 years" is kinda cute. Doesn't at all beg the phrase "worst recession in 70 years."
Russell Simmons: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, two men who will destroy our people...
Olivia Wilde: Two R's won't make it right. Romney/Ryan are Wrong for America.
What do YOU think? Was Ryan a solid choice?
