Joe Biden: the gift that keeps on giving
Biden has had some interesting things to say about the Democratic ticket. Let's review:
1. Yesterday, Biden said Hillary would have been a better v.p. pick.
2. Biden has also said Obama is "not ready" to be president.
3. And Biden famously called Obama the "first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean."
Hmm.... So by Biden's own reckoning, the Democrats are running a "clean" black guy who is not ready to be president and proved it by selecting Biden, who himself is less qualified than Hillary. What a ticket!
And, if you have never seen this truly classic clip from Biden's 1988 presidential campaign, you must do so at once! In it, Biden tells a stunned reporter that he has a "much higher IQ" than him, and then fabricates a bunch of academic credentials in support of his boast. Too bad they were all lies.
Yes, Biden really is the gift that keeps on giving.
