Before you watch this clip (via Jim Geraghty), I want you to understand something: this is Joe Biden, Vice President of the United States of America. This is the guy hand-picked by then-Senator Barack Obama to be his wingman. This is the guy that was to have Obama’s back; the person that Obama would trust with the keys; the man who the President could rely on, no matter what. And not just from the point of view of the Presidency: with this pick Barack Obama made it clear that, in his judgment, Joe Biden was the best, most reliable choice out there for the Democratic party.
Good. Now watch:
Jim said, “Give this man a slot at the 2012 Republican convention!” To which I reply: Good God, no. Joe Biden might actually get confused and think that he’s supposed to play it straight, and thus try to help us. And then we’d be DOOMed.
