Why I like Joe Biden

Joe and Jill Biden--she's cute!

One thing's for sure: Joe Biden can come up with some great lines when the press is in his face.

Exhibit A: during an MSNBC dems debate, Biden says this about Rudy Jewels:
"There's only three things he mentions in a sentence -- a noun, a verb, and 9/11. There's nothing else! There's nothing else! And I mean this sincerely. He's genuinely not qualified to be president."
ZING! Take that, Rudy!

Exhibit B: his response to Bush's claims that he didn't know what the NIE was going to reveal; just that McConnell had told him there was something big in it--so he hasn't been lying for the last eight months about Iran. Biden's reaction:
"Are you telling me a president who is briefed every single morning, who is fixated on Iran, is not told back in August that the tentative conclusion of 16 intelligence agencies in the United States government said they had abandoned their effort for a nuclear weapon in ’03?” Biden said in a conference call with reporters.
“That’s not believable,” Biden added. “I refuse to believe that. If that’s true, he has the most incompetent staff in … modern American history and he’s one of the most incompetent presidents in modern American history.”

Amen, Joe. Tell it like it is!

If she hasn't already thought about it, Hillary Clinton might want to consider offering the VP spot to Biden (can you tell I'm convinced that she'll be nominee? And if she is, I'll vote for her).

At least then she'd have ONE honest person on the ticket.

I hate Joe Biden. Why? Because most of the time I agree with what comes out of his mouth. Then I remember he's Senator MBNA. ARGH!

We need a Dr. Frankenstein to take all the Dem clowns, chop them into little bits, and assemble The Ultimate Candidate. In the body of Elizabeth Kucinich, of course.

Randal, I've said it many times to myself, and I'll say it out loud now: You are a fecking GENIUS.

If I was a genius, I'd have found a way to get Americans to stop voting for evil bastards. I just know what lefty hetero dudes and lesbians like. :)

Damn that Randal Graves... I was stopping by to say just that.

Well not exactly that- I don't hate Joe. In fact, I really, really want to like Joe. I do, I truly do.

But then it comes back to me... Dela-f*ckin-ware. Credit Card Central, aka The Gates of Hell.

It may be a tiny state, but the amount of business money there is enough to make Hillary climb under Joe's desk and... well I just hope she isn't wearing a blue dress.

Sorry for the evil reference but that is why I dislike Joe and Hillary... The power of money is too strong.

That however is why I dislike ALL of them.

I will vote for my party's nominee, but not necessarily happily so.

I liked Joe when he was my senator (I lived in Delaware from '89 to '96), but the banking connection does bother me. He's also sometimes credited with one of my favorite quotes about Rick Santorum (have also heard Bob Kerrey credited with this)..."Santorum...I believe that's Latin for Asshole."

I'd vote for her any day. Him, not so much since he's Mr. Corporate. He's going to end up Sec of State or something in the next Dem. admin.
