Imagine – we have a vice president, the mere mention of whose name elicits laughter. That was a big deal when it was Dan Quayle, but not with Biden. For the media, it’s just, Oh, you know, Joe will be Joe. He says what he thinks!
Well never mind that what he thinks might be idiotic. And that he’s somehow a step away from the presidency.
I really have never recoiled so much at a politician’s performance as I did the night of the vice presidential debate, when Biden tried to diminish Paul Ryan by feigning hilarity at everything Ryan said. How did he possibly get away with that? Giggling away like a lunatic. He entirely degraded his office.
Anyway, Biden made his bed, and now he can put his political career to sleep in it, because no one’s going to elect a laughing stock president.
Uh, at least, I don’t think so . . .
