biden.gifJoe Biden says he’s going to that “Daily Kos thing” but he’s got a bone to pick with inaccurate bloggers:

[O]ne of the things that happens is that the public is coming to grips with how to deal with this instant, unfiltered information that may be deliberately mis-edited.

But I think — and this is naive maybe — I have confidence that the American people will put this in perspective. Like when one of the bloggers said, “We’re going to take back the Democratic Party.”

They don’t own the Democratic Party.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume Biden is referring to the famous Eli Pariser quote about the Democratic Party, “We bought it, we own it, and we’re taking it back.” As the Executive Director of MoveOn at the time, he was speaking to “professional election losers” who run the Democratic Party, and by “we” he meant “the people.” No blogger in sight.

I’m also going to do Joe the credit of assuming he didn’t “deliberately mis-edit” and just didn’t know, once again, what the hell he was talking about. Presidential timber, that one. Too bad he’s not running as a Republican.

Speaking of MoveOn, as Christy noted this morning the Live Earth concert is happening in DC. I’m going to try to be there, it looks like it’s going to be a really good show and I hope everyone shows up in support.
