Drudge has it that VP Biden is talking six days off to prepare for the debate with Ryan. Tell you how that’s going to go.

Biden and a Ryan substitute will practice ‘responding’ to questions none designed to upset Biden but give an opportunity for talking points to be expressed and honed. No white-knuckle probing, no grimace-causing questioning, just get the VP prepared so he’s pleased with his performance now and in prospect.

Additionally they have already have, in their minds, who and what Ryan is – after all they’ve been describing him since he was named as Mitt’s running mate – and that their meme as to how to respond. First error: believing your negative description of an opponent is on the money.

After each training session both Biden and his Ryan stand-in will wave a pleasant bye-bye to each other and say each looks forward to the next meeting. After all, we’re all in this together, right?

Biden should have a Ryan stand-in who is determined to reduce the VP to either tears or melt into a gibbering morass but that’s won’t happen. Guaranteed the VP believes his years of experience counter whatever Ryan says and it’s only a matter of age and experience trumping youth.

Meanwhile, the Press having scented blood in the water will look for more bleeding. My view is Biden won’t dissatisfy.
