Thursday night (Oct. 11) marks the sole Vice Presidential debate of the 2012 presidential race, pitting Vice President Joe Biden against Republican nominee for VP Paul Ryan, a seven-term Republican congressman from Wisconsin.

The Vice Presidential debate likely will be much more interesting than the Presidential debate, because both Biden and Ryan are a little more wild and woolly with what they say. As comedian Chris Rock tweeted during the Presidential debate, “Joe Biden is backstage shirtless, drinking a MGD Draft screaming in the
mirror ‘Osama Bin Laden is Dead, General Motors is Alive.'”

Will you be disappointed if there aren’t some VP bon mots that come out of this debate? It all kicks off at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on all major networks plus cable, but if you can’t watch on TV, your live stream is above.
