Joe Biden: Voice of Sanity?

It speaks volumes to know that Joe “great donut, Aamir!” Biden is, temporarily at least, the most sane Democrat in the pool of presidential hopefuls — which is of course right up there with being the best ballerina in Lubbock, but still…

Biden’s son is headed to Iraq, and Joe has some points that should be pounded into the heads of every politician:

“I don’t want him going,” Delaware Sen. Joe Biden said from the campaign trail Wednesday, according to a report on Radio Iowa. “But I tell you what, I don’t want my grandson or my granddaughters going back in 15 years and so how we leave makes a big difference.”

Biden criticized Democratic rivals such as Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama who have voted against Iraq funding bills to try to pressure President Bush to end the war.

“There’s no political point worth my son’s life,” Biden said, according to Radio Iowa. “There’s no political point worth anybody’s life out there. None.”

Tell that to some of your congressional colleagues, Senator.


I just received the following email from a man who didn’t quite catch the point in my calling Biden the most sane Democrat in the pack, but it’s worth sharing nonetheless:

Hello Mr. Powers,

You’ve got to be kidding …right?? Here’s a man, Joe “the plagiarizer” Biden, the father of the Violence Against Women ONLY Act (VAWOA) who allowed no opposing testimony in the renewal of that unconstitutional one-sided legislation which equates to ALL women=GOOD! All men=BAD! being portrayed as a voice of reason??

What good is it if a man fights for his country and returns home to one sided injustice where his wife has taken his house, his children and his paycheck? It is akin to black men returning home from WWII only to be denied basic rights in their own country. If you notice, serviceMEN have been losing custody and have been cut off from their children for a number of years. Those sad events didn’t garner any attention until women who are in the military started experiencing the same. Then politicians and judges jumped on the bandwagon and wanted to do something to remedy the situation.

Here is a man who made the statement (to the press) that he would rather be home F**king his wife rather than running for President (just as in Bubba’s case not a peep from ANY feminists) If a Christian or conservative Republican or an Independent had made a similar statement, he would have been crucified in a manner much worse than Don Imus. Here is a man (the leading male feminist) who foolishly thinks he can become President by pandering to the man-hating feminists in the dimwitocratic party. Hopefully, your article is only preview of an April Fool’s joke!!

Very sincerely,

J. Townsend
A Black man who N.O.W. (pun intended) sees the light!

Just for the record, Mr. Townsend, I found Biden’s “rather be home making love to my wife” comment to be absolutely shocking as well — I mean, a politican screwing his own wife? Like that ever happens.
