Schoolyard taunts on the trail; Biden’s biker babe; and Nicki Minaj isn’t a Romney fan (read-this roundup)

Schoolyard taunts — What was that about substance? The campaigns have resorted to trading zingers, barbs, and insults. Some are only a notch more sophisticated than “I know you are, but what am I?”

Biden and the biker — And we’re disappointed to learn that the biker chick that Vice President Joe Biden was cozying up to in that now-viral photograph wasn’t actually perched on his lap.

Burning question — Nicki Minaj isn’t, as some surmised based on a lyric she sang, a supporter of Mitt Romney’s. She tweeted a clarifying message of support to Obama.
