Ah yes... what would the Fox freakout over how the vice presidential debate went without Caribou Barbie being asked to weigh in by her fellow bomb-thrower, Sean Hannity. Here they are following the debate on Fox Thursday night, opining about mean old Joe Biden picking on their boy Ryan.

And naturally Hannity thinks the biggest news to come out of the debate is... Biden's facial expressions. Yep, that's what's important. Forget Ryan's lies. The real scandal is that Biden reacted to them.

PALIN: Well, I believe that Joe Biden was sent in as the attack dog in this debate to compensate for President Obama's atrocious showing in his own debate where he was aloof and arrogant and disconnected and really disengaged with what is very important to the American voter.

That was the representation of Obama in his own debate last week. So I believe that Joe Biden was sent in to try to compensate for that, but really tough format, Sean, for someone like Paul Ryan or anyone else up against Joe Biden when the moderator allowed one candidate to absolutely run rough shot over the conversation over the opponent.

That's a tough format. It reminded me I just told Neil Cavuto of watching a musk ox run across the tundra with somebody underfoot and in this case when it came to style it was Paul Ryan underfoot because of the moderator allowing Biden to do the interrupting, to kind of take control of the conversation. [...]

HANNITY: Well, all I can say is I can't wait to get back to our studio tomorrow night and montage Joe Biden and his facial expressions all throughout the debate.

I think that'll be a big story by the time we get back. There is was instant poll I saw that had Ryan ahead. Every focus group I'm hearing from did not like the tone, the condescension, the arrogance, and the interruption of the vice president.

So we're going to watch very closely. Governor Palin, great to see you as always. Thank you so much for being with us.

PALIN: Thank you, Sean. Let me remind you one thing too though. The truth told can't be all lies when can invent. When Joe Biden told some truths about death panels, but he told it out of context with an intention to skew what the true meaning and the truth behind the policy issues are. That's as bad as actually telling a lie so just keep that in mind when you talk about the verbiage that Joe Biden chose to use tonight.
