VP Debate: Character Matters

After the Vice Presidential Debate, I have a renewed vigor to make sure my son has learned good manners before leaving home.  Our Vice-President's demeanor Thursday night was pretty appalling.  Interrupting, laughing, and sneering makes a person look very foolish, especially when discussing subjects of very serious importance such as unemployment and the state of the Middle East. 

Proverbs 29:9&11

If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet. A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.

Our Vice-President interrupted Paul Ryan 85 times within 90 minutes.

How many times did Joe Biden laugh while Ryan was answering a question?  53. 
(The intro is a bit much, but the video makes a point.)

Joe Biden is laughing...are you?

(I mean no disrespect, but I believe that the principle here is important to share.)
