On the third night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden took the stage to deliver a rousing, inspirational speech about America, President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, his departed son Beau, and Donald Trump. But, mainly, he said the word "malarkey" and had the right mix of goofy irreverence and genuine spirit that's made him America's official cool uncle.

Whatever happens in November, one thing is clear: we will not have a VP as weird and great as Joe Biden for a long time.
