Vice President Joe Biden laughed a lot during tonight’s vice presidential debate. For an event that started out with a question about the terrorist attack which claimed the lives of four Americans, what exactly did he think was so darn funny?
Twitter has some theories:
Perhaps moderator Martha Raddatz was giving Biden the giggles.
Things did seem to get a bit serious toward the end. Any theories?
Raddatz noted that this was the first time that two Catholics faced each other in a debate, but she wasn’t the only one with religion on her mind. Quite a few tweeters found Biden’s seemingly endless chuckles reminded them of a certain Bible verse.

Sums up the night:
If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet. (Proverbs 29:9 ESV)—

I found it extremely hilarious that when I typed "Proverbs 29:9" into the search bar, Biden Ryan debate also showed up!—

OK, that might be the one thing that Biden won’t find hilarious tonight.
