#1 When the debate began Plugs had no difficulty talking, but about halfway through he began having problems with finding his words and speaking coherently.
Whatever drug(s) he was given to control the dementia were obviously wearing thin and his attention level was slipping. When he was caught and became entangled by the issues, his sheepish grin gave him away. Plug's body language had once again betrayed him.
He failed to complete his thoughts a few times. The other tip off was the wide open eyes and rapid blinking.
He he was likely on some type of drug. Having eyes that wide open for that length of time is not natural. His pupils could not be seen and may have been dilated.

#2 Agree; Biden was punchy for the third and definitely fourth quarters.
Biden's best quarter was probably the second, but even Chris Berman gets irritating after a couple Come'on Man! shticks.
The eyes. I know there was a thing about bionic contacts with script. What it reminded me of was wearing polarized sunglasses and looking at a computer monitor.
I wonder if he had on special contacts to help see/tone down bright lights and the polarization hit at angles to a camera's polarization pattern. I don't know enough about corrective lenses or studio camera systems for that to be anything other than a guess.

#4 Interesting test the Falun Gong is doing with Google Translate. If you translate "Biden lost the debate" into traditional Chinese script (the one used in Taiwan) it comes out correctly. If you translate it into Simplified Script, the characters used in the Mainland, it comes out "Biden won the debate."

#5 Biden started getting punchy when it became obvious he was losing the debate. I suspect he'd planned for over the top rude Trump and instead got a very Presidential Trump.

#6 In a bit of irony and judo, the format and execution of worked well for Trump IMHO. Let Biden take the shot, then rebound like Dennis Rodman.
