This is as uncomfortable as it gets, but I want to praise Senator Joe Biden. That’s right — praise Joe Biden.
Biden, one of the many Democrat presidential candidates who debated last night (there hasn’t been that much weasel on one stage since Riki-Tikki-Tavi: The Musical debuted off-Broadway), was asked a question about some “offensive” comments he’s made in the past — i.e. saying you can’t go into a 7-11 or Dunkin’ Donuts in his state of Delaware without an Indian accent.
Funny how the moderator Brian Williams thought it fit to ask Biden about his comments, but he never confronted Hillary about her “joke” about Ghandi running a gas station in St. Louis. I guess Williams didn’t want to wake up next to a severed horse head.
At any rate, last night, Brian Williams asked this:
“Senator Biden, words have in the past gotten you in trouble — words that were borrowed and words that some found hateful. An editorial in the Los Angeles Times said, ‘In addition to his uncontrolled verbosity, Biden is a gaffe machine.’ Can you reassure voters in this country that you would have the discipline you would need on the world stage?”
Biden responded, “Yes.”
Here’s a short video that should be used as a training tool on brevity for all politicians.
Of course, he’s lying, but anybody who spared us the usual windbag response deserves to go straight to the top of the list of my favorite candidates who I’m not going to vote for.
