Video of the Day, I Have Been Shown This Video, But I Do Not Believe It edition.

To mangle Harry Turtledove: if this was a good enough excuse for Herodotus whenever he wanted to include a good yarn in his history, then it’s good enough for me.



Joe Biden gets a Detroit woman killed.

Good job there, Mr. Vice President:

It was shortly before 1 a.m. Nov. 2 and Renisha McBride was involved in an accident with a parked vehicle in Detroit.

More than two hours later and six blocks away, she was shot in the face by a man who told police he thought someone was breaking into his Dearborn Heights home. The 54-year-old homeowner, according to police, said his 12-gauge shotgun discharged accidentally.



Joe Biden gave bad (read: illegal) advice on responsible gun use. To his WIFE.

:holding head in hands: Of course he did.

Background: in what may end up being the most epic Joe Biden Opens His Mouth EVER the Vice President told a Facebook ‘town hall’ hosted by Parenting Magazine that he had advised his wife that her proper firearms strategy in case of home invasion should be to… get a shotgun, brandish it, and empty the barrels into the air… Hold up!  Wait, wait, I know what you’re going to say.

  • You’re going to say Do not wield a firearm unless you are prepared to use it; do not point a firearm at a person unless you are prepared to shoot that person; do not shoot a person unless you are prepared to kill him or her.  And you would be right.  Those are all true things.  But that’s not Jill Biden’s only problem if she follows that advice.
  • You’re also going to say, like Reason.com did, that “since hypothetical frightened Jill Biden has just fired two shells into the air from a double-barreled shotgun, she is now disarmed, and has to reload before she can defend herself.”  And you would be right there, too.  Because that is also true.  But those are not Jill Biden’s only two problems if she follows that advice.

It’s the third problem that is going to really complicate Jill Biden’s life: what her husband suggests that she do in this situation is actually a felony in the State of Delaware*. (more…)
