Vice President Joe Biden’s ever-present Cheshire Cat grin during the vice presidential debate was all the chatter on Twitter, sparking new versions such as the Biden Smirk and sending political commentators into overdrive.
According to a roundup of comments in Politico, The Weekly Standard’s Mark Hemingway noted that “Joe Biden’s laughing through talking about Iran sanctions?” while the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard wrote, “Can’t tell yet if Biden’s smirking, laughs, eye-rolling, head shaking, works for him or not against the oh-so-young looking eager Ryan.”

The New York Times’ Ashley Parker observed that “Biden’s grin is Cheshire Cat caliber,” and former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer said, “Biden is at risk of having his laugh come across like Gore’s sighs. He should knock it off.”

Movie critic Roger Ebert gave the smile fest a thumbs down, saying: “Joe! Stop smiling and laughing!” while GOP strategist Ron Bonjean said, “Biden laughing does not come off with the intended effect. It is actually hurting him. Looks very condescending,” Politico reported.
