Slow Joe Strikes Again...

I swear, just in pure entertainment value I love the fact that Joe Biden is part of the campaign.

Check this out...in last night's interview with Katie couric, in between dissing Obama's campaign ads, Biden let this out:

"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed," Biden told Couric. "He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"

Lessee...the market crashed in 1929, and FDR didn't take office until 1933. And assuming you somehow had access to a television picture back then, wouldn't you be wondering what happened to President Hoover?

But remember, his IQ's higher than yours...



Can you imagine the headlines if John McCain had said this? They'd be calling for a mandatory imprisonment in an old folks' 'facility.'

UPDATE: Remember Biden's actually revealing to Katie Couric that he was stricken by remorse over the Obama ad that mocked McCain's disability that occurred while he was a POW?

Well, Joe Biden apparently got spanked by the higher ups in the campaign and he's now been revised:

In the statement issued by the Obama campaign, Biden said he had never seen the ad and only read press reports of it.

"Having now reviewed the ad, it is even more clear to me that given the disgraceful tenor of Senator McCain's ads and their persistent falsehoods, his campaign is in no position to criticize," Biden said in the statement.

Notice that this was a statement drafted by some hack at the the campaign, not an actual live statement from Biden.

One decent moment of shame and remorse...I guess we knew that couldn't last.

It's becoming more and more plausible to me that Biden is headed off the ticket after th eVP debates 'for health reasons.'
