Delaware's gift to comedy and the U.S. Senate - gas bag Joe Biden - is at it again.
Here is an item - courtesy of Hugh Hewitt and Mary Katherine Ham - of Biden's inability to shut down his mouth and let his brain takeover:

Biden Said Whaaaat???
Posted by: Mary Katharine Ham at 10:35 AM
Hugh posted this, but I'm repeating it because it bears repeating. Biden on Obama:
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,”
A clean black man? The first black guy on the American political scene who can both shower regularly and speak properly? Is that really what Biden thinks?
If a Republican had said this, we'd have a national outpouring of grief over the residual ignorance and racial insensitivity in our country, and the guy would be in sensitivity training until round about the time John Kerry is elected president.
Biden, I'm sure, will pay no consequences for his boneheaded comment.
Sadly, Mary Katherine may be right here. Biden will probably pay no price for this outrageous comment - be it intentional or just his standard foot in mouth disease. Just like it was over looked by the MSM when he made his ill-advised comments about not going into a Delaware "7-11 without a slight Indian accent" last year. Whether he gets a pass because of his maddening loquaciousness, propensity for daft stupidity or because his views match those of his brethren in the media.
Sad, just sad....

It more resembles the "greatest collection of invertebrates assembled within one chamber."
Today the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 12-9 (in what Reuters called a bi-partisan approval) to send a resolution to the full Senate alerting President Bush to the Senate's opposition to the proposed surge of U.S. troops to Iraq.
Despite Reuters assertion to the contrary the vote was fairly partisan in that 11 Democrats voted against the measure with one Republican, Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, joining them and 10 Republicans voting against the resolution. Perhaps Reuters vision of bi-partisanship was enhanced by the specter of Richard Lugar and George Voinovich voting no but straddling the fence by citing their refusal to adopt the measure because it was political in nature (Voinovich) and might send the message we are divided and in disarray (Lugar). If this ain't disarray, I don't know what is!
Troops and serious Americans can take heart in knowing that as bad things can get in the Senate, the pompous bloviators can provide a great deal of humor, even if unintentionlly. Take Chuck Hagel. The empty headed Nebraskan said he was voting for the resolution because the Bush administration was playing ping-pong with "American lives." Why play a table game when you can play a good old political parlor game as Chucky is. The heck with the troops, deliberation and seriousness when sound bites are needed because his job is on the line.
He then said that each of the 100 Senators should have to vote on the tough issues facing them - with non-binding resolutions to show they're up to the task. Hagel said if they could face the tough issues thy should get a safe job, like selling shoes.
This from a man Reuters says is a "presidential possibility". My question to Reuters is; on what planet.
Though, Senators selling shoes is an excellent suggestion for Nebraska voters in Hagels next reelection bid. Vote on a binding resolution to allow Chucky to sell shoes.
more to come....

"THERE ARE KLINGONS IN THE WHITE HOUSE" CONGRESSMAN DAVID WU
It's okay though, I guess. He's on the the House of Representatives Space Subcommittee.

For cripes sakes do you really believe the U.S population is ready to elect someone named Newt, or Mitt or Chuck president.
Johnny Carson used to do an hilarious routine about how we end up with such mundane if not ridiculous (see Bush, George Herbert Walker and George Dubya) candidates for president.
Johnny, were are ya' when we really need you?
"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope...." – Robert Kennedy 1966
“Hang on Mary Jo; I’ll be right back with help.” – Ted Kennedy July 17, 1969
Actually, I'm sure that Teddy boy thinks his words about "Iraq being Bush's Viet Nam" in the Puffington Host (see Kennedy) be included here as inspirational words rather than what I've concocted about Chappaquiddick above. Kennedy wants a "new direction" in Iraq - his euphemism for retreating from Iraq by running away from a tough situation. Something he knows a great about (see quote above).
Kennedy's arrogance, pomposity and hubris are beyond the pale even for someone without the excess baggage he - and his family - carries. Check out these quotes from the post:
- "Iraq is George Bush's Viet Nam" says Teddy - conveniently hoping people will forget the President who first involved the US in Viet Nam was his brother.
- "Never before has our system of checks and balances been so important." conveniently ignoring RFK's authorizing wire taps on Martin Luther King.
- "Instead of continued mistakes and shoot-from-the-hip policies, it's time to get this right." conveniently forgetting ...well his life to date!
I could go on, but I believe you get the point...
... And for those who think Chappaquiddick is ancient history and Kennedy must have surely learned his lesson and has been humbled by this experience I submit - Kennedy's Chocolate Labrador Retriever (subject of a children's book no less) is named Splash.

Seems the verbose, hair-plugged Wonder Kid Joe Biden hasn’t learned much in 20 odd years. Despite having his first campaign crash and burn amid allegations of plagiarizing British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock’s campaign speech, he begins his 2008 closely mimicking, if not resurrecting, the defunct U.S. Army ad campaign with a cloying claim that, “I’m running to be the Best Biden I can be!” To which I say (with apologies to Dana Carvey’s Church Lady) - Isn’t that precious!!
This just goes to show, whether in his default mode – endlessly droning on with no discernable point in sight – or his outlier attempt at brevity and pithiness , Biden’s not an enjoyable listen.
When asked about his foreign policy objectives Biden said, “I’m looking to let Iran be the best Iran it can be , to let Kim il Jong be the best Kim il Jong he can be and Syria be the best Syria it can be.” Asked his policy on Iraq, Biden said, “Iraq is already the best Iraq it can be so we should get our things together and get out of there skidoo!”
The San Francisco metropolitan area has a higher percentage of people who are regular drug users than any other major metropolitan area in the USA, a study from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found.
Do they also have the highest percentage of face lift recipients surprised by their last procedure?!
