Is there something funny, Joe? We’ve been having fun at the vice president’s expense all week in the lead-up to tonight’s debate, but things have turned serious over the last couple of days as the State Department has broken ranks with the White House and admitted that there was no protest which led to the deaths of four Americans in Libya on Sept. 11.
Vice President Biden, though, just couldn’t stop smirking as Paul Ryan called out the administration on its massive security failures overseas. We think we’ve finally found something creepier than Jim Messina’s #ForAll pose.
ahhh Biden looks like a creepy clown…. please do not smirk like that again…..

Biden clearly worked very hard on the Romney smirk all week. He didnt get it quite right.

Biden, get that smirk off your face. You look like an idiot.

Biden smirk is… not good.

Joe Biden’s smirk during Paul Ryan’s comments is beyond disrespectful

I’m not a gambler, but I would play poker with Biden. In the mean time, he should get that smirk off his face, bc he’s not winning.

Joe Biden’s smirk is just creepy. Answer the damn question, Joe! #VPDebate

Not sure I can sit and watch this whole debate with Biden’s condescending smirk on his face.

Nice to see Biden spinning like a top with a teenage smirk on his face already.#Leadership

Biden is starting to lose it already. Smirk, laugh,eye roll. He’ll lose it on body language alone #vpdebate

Biden’s denture guffaw is creepy #VPDebate

#VPDebate Joe Biden that smile is the grimace of a cornered animal

Someone make Biden stop doing that baby monkey fear grimace. #vpdebate

All of Biden’s laughs and smiles are making him look like a village idiot.
— Noel Sheppard (@NoelSheppard) October 12, 2012
I do think Biden is on the verge of condescending/body language here in his tone. #vpdebate

These are serious issues and Biden is just laughing them off. It’s insane.
— AG (@AG_Conservative) October 12, 2012
Well, it certainly looks insane.
Biden’s smirking teeth are beginning to strobe through my TV screen. Disturbing. #PMTdebate
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 12, 2012
Joe, seriously, STOP SMIRKING. This is serious stuff. Be Vice-Presidential. #PMTdebate
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 12, 2012
Well, that didn’t take long. Biden’s smirk has its own Twitter account.
— Biden Smirk (@BidenSmirk) October 12, 2012
Biden’s smirk has evolved into laughter, but not everyone is in on the joke. Ryan fans aren’t amused, and even some Obama supporters are unsure how Biden’s condescending approach is playing with the audience.
The YouTube video of Biden laughing continuously on loop is going to be awesome. #vpdebate

I’m glad people think this is so funny- our country, our people are hurting.

Yanks-Os tied right now.Kind of like this debate.Hard to say anyone is winning, although Biden’s laugh might lose it.
— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) October 12, 2012
Trying to figure out if Biden’s lit or he just likes to sit & laugh a lot. He prob shouldn’t have had that brownie prior.😉
— Jason Hawes (@Jchawes) October 12, 2012
Biden needs to laugh a little less through the Libya, Middle East, nuclear Iran segment.
— S.E. Cupp (@secupp) October 12, 2012
The condescending laugh of Joe Biden just highlights this administration’s arrogance when they can’t argue the facts.
— Demetrius Minor (@dminor85) October 12, 2012
Joe Biden is laughing at the possibility of Israel being engulfed in a nuclear fireball. Laugh it up, idiot.
— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL) October 12, 2012
Joe Biden was clearly coached to laugh constantly while Ryan was speaking. It’s disconcerting and inappropriate. People are dying.
— Todd Kincannon (@ToddKincannon) October 12, 2012
Looking like Biden’s gameplan is to laugh his way through this.
