The VP debate is barely going and Biden has already offered a potential
Phrase of the Day. While commenting on Ryan's talking points, Biden
opined, emphatically, "This is a bunch of stuff!" This got Raddatz
puzzled, so Ryan jumped in with something like, "This is an Irish
thing." But Biden pushed it further, making the obvious euphemism even
more obvious, "The Irish call it 'malarkey'."
