This Made Me Laff


We have been hearing, and will hear, a great deal about Palin's approval/disapproval rating, questions about whether voters think she has the right experience, etc. I wonder if the right question about the Democratic vice presidential candidate -- "Do you think Joe Biden knows what he is saying when he speaks, or does his mouth operate completely independently of any central nervous system?" -- would generate some interesting results.

Joe Biden is the gift that's going to keep giving right up until election day. Thank you, Senator Obama, thank you.

[Update early afternoon]

As I said, the gift that keeps on giving. Senator Biden was for coal, before he was against it. He likes (on odd days of the week, anyway) coal gasification. But with gasbags like him around, we won't have to mine any coal at all.

[Another update]

Man, the hits just keep on coming:

When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, "look, here's what happened."

It was probably one of those steam-powered televisions. And as Jesse Walker notes, "...if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, "Who is that guy? What happened to President Hoover?"

Maybe he was helping Barack's uncle liberate Auschwitz.

[Mid-afternoon update]

I did not know that. Felix the Cat was the very first television star. As Ed Driscoll notes, they wouldn't have been asking what happened to President Hoover; they would have been asking what happened to Felix.

Obama scolds McCain for agreeing with Joe Biden:

But, as Lauer pointed out, scarcely three minutes after McCain said he opposed the AIG bailout last week, "in an interview with Meredith Vieira, Joe Biden, your running mate was asked the exact same question, 'should the federal government bailout AIG?' And he said, 'No, the federal government should not bailout AIG.'" "And I think that in that situation," Obama said, "I think Joe should have waited as well."

Hee hee.

Why isn't Biden getting the "Quayle" treatment? This guy could be a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Where's Bob to defend this?

This gaffe is begging for the Iowahawk treatment.

Here is another Obama vs Palin thought...

If Palin was at the top of the ticket instead of McCain, do you suppose shw would have selected anyone as loopy as Biden for her V.P.? I suspect not.
