A Personal Thank-You to Joe Biden


I know many were upset with Joe Biden’s cowardly decision to cower under the bed while Russ Feingold bravely showed up to defend the Constitution in today’s Senate Jucidiary hearings, but I think you people have it ALL WRONG.

Do you know how hard it is to keep those bleached teeth and hair plugs out of the spotlight?  Harry Reid gets the support of Biden (and other camera hogs) as Senate Minority Leader expressly because he doesn’t like the cameras and poses no threat to their face time, something Biden is willing to protect with the ferocity of an enraged Doberman.  And the lighting in the committee hearing room is so very flattering, it’s a virtual advertisement for The Hair Club for Men and the juggernaut that is Biden 2008. 

Thanks to the utter selflessness on the part of the Senator from MBNA, who did not seize the opportunity to once again bloviate endlessly with nothing constructive to add to the conversation and parade before the cameras under the sad delusion that the country feels the same way about him that the pack of sycophants he surrounds himself with pretend to and will soon put him in the White House, the floor was clear for Russ Feingold to prove himself a statesman, stand up to Arlen Spector publicly, express the sentiments of the majority of the people in this country and act like a man.

Thanks, Joe.  You look so pretty in pink.
