I wasn't really planning on writing about Senator Joe Biden(d-DE) announcing for the presidency, but the senator made it - ummmmmm- irresistable.
He launched his bid in typically classy style by dissing the other presumptive Democrat nominees in an interview with the New York Observer:
On Senator Clinton: "Everyone in the world knows her...her husband has used every single legitimate tool in his behalf to lock people in, shut people down. Legitimate. And she can’t break out of 30 percent for a choice for Democrats? Where do you want to be? Do you want to be in a place where 100 percent of the Democrats know you? They’ve looked at you for the last three years. And four out of 10 is the max you can get?”
On Senator Obama: "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."
On ex-Senator John Edwards: “I don’t think John Edwards knows what the heck he is talking about...John Edwards wants you and all the Democrats to think, ‘I want us out of there (Iraq),’ but when you come back and you say, ‘O.K., John, what about the chaos that will ensue? Do we have any interest, John, left in the region?’ Well, John will have to answer yes or no. If he says yes, what are they? What are those interests, John? How do you protect those interests, John, if you are completely withdrawn? Are you withdrawn from the region, John? Are you withdrawn from Iraq, John? In what period? So all this stuff is like so much Fluffernutter out there."
I'm sure that Senator Clinton and John Edwards are happy about the respect they're being shown by Biden. And Senator Obama? He must be sho' nuff tickled pink that de liberal white senator thinks of him as clean enough to mix with the quality on dat ol' senate floor!
This particular gas bag may already have gone the way of the Hindenburg, but I hope not..he's too much fun.
Hard to believe someone at this level of development is a real live US senator.
