Debate Recap

The New York Post reviews “The Lies Biden Told” in Thursday’s debate. It’s not a complete list, but it’s a good summary of Biden’s main fibs. Most entertaining, though, is the Post’s history lesson:

For all the focus on Sarah Palin’s graceful performance in Thursday’s vice presidential showdown, a more significant spectacle was taking place behind the other rostrum.

That’s where Joe Biden, speaking with the pompus self-importance befitting his 36 years in the Senate, told one baffling fib after another.

Some, of course, were just Biden being Biden. He smeared Dick Cheney as “the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.”

To which we must take specific offense: After all, the founder of this newspaper, Alexander Hamilton, was killed in a duel by then-Vice President Aaron Burr. (Certainly Burr was a better shot than Cheney.)

The Post doesn’t note Biden’s mangling of the Constitution, which wasn’t a fib but a display of ignorance.

UPDATE: Investors Business Daily has more.
