The daily Joe

Honestly Joe Biden gives us so much great material I could start making a regular installment of it. Here’s the latest verbal blunder from Obama’s court jester-in-running:

WASHINGTON — Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to a financial crisis.

When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,”‘ Barack Obama’s running mate recently told the “CBS Evening News.”

Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn’t introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World’s Fair.

Relinquish thy trophy Sir Quayle and bow to thy master. Ye hath been officially out-gaffed.

Initially I dreaded the addition of Joe to the ticket. Having watched him on C-Span over the years I braced myself for weeks of phony posturing and long condescending speeches.  But now I’ve kinda grown to like the guy. He’s got this lovable, Howard Dean quality to him.  Listening to him speak off the cuff is like being at the plate against a hall-of-fame pitcher… you never know what’s coming next.

Please keep him on Barry, we beg you.
