Biden as Obama’s Hot Potatoe?

Even the New York Times cannot help but be bemused by the amazing mouth of Joe Biden. I cannot resist adding that it seems that old Joe imagines some of Obama’s supernatural powers may have rubbed off onto him by virtue of his proximity to Obama’s sacred robes. Obama has the power to command the waters of the sea and Biden (note his urging that a paraplegic state senator stand to be recognized) apparently now believes that he has the power to command the lame to walk!

At least Biden comes off more as an awkward oaf than as a presumptuous and arrogant elitist with a messiah complex. Maybe the Democrats can work that lovable dork image to their advantage. But if it were me, I wouldn’t much like having to play that hand.

He's not the first Democrat VP nominee who claimed special insight into the plight of para and quadraplegics. As you recall John Edwards promised that through the election of the Kerry/Edwards ticket, the lame would walk.

Where's Will Rogers when ya' need him?
