I don't understand all that laughing Joe Biden did, doesn't make sense to laugh during a serious discussion. Only serves to demean the other person as if what he's saying is ridiculous and not important. All the interrupting was a power play and is also rude and demeaning.

It has to do with the narrative they set up after the presidential debate. You remember that after that the big dem talking point was "Romney lied", so i'm guessing they told Biden to smile and smirk after every Ryan line to make it like, "oh gee they're lying again, i have to laugh". I think it backfired because it probably came across as rude and condescending to independents, i'm guessing it only helped with their base, which they had already anyway.
