Apparently, “experienced” Joe Biden doesn’t know much about the high office of vice president he is running to fill. My first-year law school friend Tyler at Constructively Reasonable has the details (and as Tyler points out, so do the legal minds at the Volokh Conspiracy). So does the Washington Times. A man who has been in the U.S. Senate for 35 years could be so ignorant about how our federal government works?
What if it had been Sarah Palin who had made the gaffe? You can imagine the mainstream media reports would be swift, harsh, and unforgiving. But since it’s Slow Joe Biden at the Wilmington, Delaware Home Depot, representing their favored Democratic Party ticket, for the most part there’s been nothing but the sounds of crickets chirping.
Maybe because many in the MSM are themselves ignorant about our Constitution. David Gergen at CNN says Biden’s debate performance showed him to be “extremely well informed”.
Another piece of evidence suggesting Sarah Palin may be MORE qualified to be vice president than Joe Biden. That, and the 14 lies Biden told at last night’s debate, as pointed out by Jim at Thinking Right.
