Joe Biden, the Republicans' secret weapon

In a speech to veterans earlier this week, Vice President Joe Biden helpfully continued to keep Connecticut Democratic Senatorial candidate Richard Blumenthal's Vietnam War whoppers in the public spotlight:
Biden met with veterans visiting his official residence on Tuesday night and tried to joke about Blumenthal's gaffe, for which he apologized last week. The Democratic attorney general is seeking the Senate seat.

Biden said: "I didn't serve in Vietnam. I don't want to make a Blumenthal mistake here. Our attorney general from Connecticut, God love him."

He later added: "I have a bad habit of saying exactly what I think."
Now, the first question that comes to mind is just what, exactly, would Joe Biden think with. Nonetheless, Paco Enterprises salutes Joe for his (accidental) candor.

There are some brain disorders, such as Tourette's Syndrome, where the sufferer simply cannot stop himself from saying whatever pops into his temporal lobe. I believe that pretty much explains Slow Joe. We should probably be grateful he isn't one of those who helplessly spews obscenities.

Sorta' like Rahm, RebeccaH?

I have to disagree, Rebecca. If all Slow Joe did was spout obscenities, everyone would know to disregard it. This way, unfortunately, SOME people think what he says is worth hearing!
