You just got Biden’d

I should probably start with the fact that I am a huge Joe Biden fan.  Joe is snarky and funny and his “gaffes” are usually just him being too honest rather than anything else.  Plus he destroyed Robert Bork.  Plus he’s really smart. But Joe Biden knocked it out of the park today.  He was …

Sometimes I get e-mail that I have to share. Subj: FW: Why should we vote for Mitt Romney when he is such a despicable unlikeable guy? This is the man who should be President of theUnited States! A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being “likable” or that he doesn’t “relate …
