Did Joe's Body Language Affect The Debate?

Did Joe's Body Language Affect The Debate?, Biden's grinning and animated gestures threw Paul Ryan off his game, some experts conclude. Body language: Love or hate him, it was all Joe, This time, they didn't need Big Bird.

Because really, who needed a "Sesame Street" character to grab all the post-debate attention when there was Joe Biden's smile— or laugh, chuckle, grimace, grin, smirk, or "goofy face," according to various descriptions?

Whether you loved or hated his performance — a decision that seemed to split (surprise!) along partisan lines — it was Biden who dominated the conversation during and after Thursday's vice-presidential debate, with his animated facial reactions to almost anything his opponent, Paul Ryan, uttered.

The vice president also came up with the two catchiest phrases of the night — "bunch of malarkey" and "bunch of stuff" — both of them employed (and tweeted, and retweeted) to paint his Republican opponent as untruthful.
