Counsel Behavior Lesson from the Vice-Presidential Debate 10.11.12

facebook twitter linkedin

Long before I saw the Vice-Presidential Debate, I planned to post a link to "How to Deal With AWFUL Opposing Counsel." Now Vice-President Biden has illustrated awful counsel behavior, right there on our little screens. Lucky citizens! New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, a totally convinced Democrat, said Biden, who interrupted Ryan constantly and laughed 92 times, "mugged condescension as if he were the star of a silent movie." Said Sarah Palin, Biden reminded her of "watching a musk ox run across the tundra with somebody underfoot." In fact, Biden was the worst-behaved counsel I've ever seen. Independent of the value of what either he or Paul Ryan had to say, independent of who won or lost, Joe Biden was an embarrassment to his high office.

Here's the post I originally intended to tell readers about, by Karen Koehler, "How to Deal With Awful Opposing Counsel."
