The gift that keeps on giving (UPDATED)
I guess ol’ Sheriff Joe sees his boss running around all over the place saying the most ridiculous things possible, and he gets jealous of all the attention. Or maybe he’s just a dope. Sam Stein reports:
Vice President Joseph Biden on Monday night upped the ante around the already quite-dramatic assassination of Osama bin Laden.
From the pool report of Biden’s comments during a fundraising event in New Jersey come these quotes.
“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there.”
Why stop at 500 years? Why not 5,000? Good effort, Leonidas. You gave it your best shot, Alexander the Great. Now step aside for THE GREATEST MILITARY COMMANDER IN HUMAN HISTORY.
Biden also said: “Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. Think about it.” We will, Joe, just as soon as we get done not running out and buying Chevy Volts. And this guy wonders why people boo him?
Is it any wonder why we're in the trouble we're in?
P.S., may I remind everybody that Joe Biden voted AGAINST doing the bin Laden raid. Probably not audacious enough, eh?
P.P.S, Joe Biden is the Fredo Corleone of American politics.
