Funniest tweets about the VP debate

The 25 funniest tweets about the VP debate, By Brandon Griggs, CNN, Fri October 12, 2012

(CNN) -- When he wasn't laughing, Joe Biden sounded like a belligerent old man.

Paul Ryan sipped from a cup and looked like a beleaguered altar boy.

Fair or not, those were just two characterizations of Thursday's vice presidential debate on Twitter, where a Greek chorus of jokesters kept up a witty commentary throughout the 90-minute throwdown. As with any live TV event in the social media age, the people of Twitter let no gaffe or verbal tic go unnoticed.

GuyEndoreKaiser -- "Tonight's debate is scheduled for ninety minutes, but Paul Ryan is already claiming he can finish in fifty something".
Ana Marie Cox -- "I actually happen to have "malarkey" in the drinking game! Oh geez..."

1. My husband started HOWLING when Joe corrected Martha

Don't get me wrong; she's the best moderator we've had since I don't know when. But it still cracked us up when Joe was just pistol-whipping anyone who got in his way!

Even though I know Biden doesn't drink, it's hilarious.
