More brilliance from the Veep, via the Washington Free Beacon:
When listening to Biden’s cadence, I think he’s going for something from the antebellum period, perhaps the accent of a sheriff’s deputy circa 1840 Savannah who’s had a bit too much of Uncle Zed’s corn mash. Who knows. Anyway, I can’t believe they don’t muzzle this guy. But I’m glad they don’t. Both he and Pelosi provide an endless supply of blogging material.
Update: (h/t Charles Bogue) Rudy Giuliani has Biden’s number:
I think the vice president of the United States has become a laugh line on late night television. I mean, he — I’ve never seen a vice president that has made as many mistakes, said as many stupid things. I mean, there’s a real fear if, God forbid, he ever had to be entrusted with the presidency, whether he really has the mental capacity to handle it. I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright. And people think, ‘Well, he just talks a little too much.’ Actually he’s not very smart.
Update II: Apparently Obama’s just fine with Biden’s “chains” comment.
