As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sockpuppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.
Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.
Sockpuppet comments about the Republican primary race are strictly prohibited. If you wish to use sockpuppets for that purpose, confine your comments to this thread. Same goes for any discussion that is not funny where people want to get angry at each other. Offending comments will be summarily deleted and the violators flogged.
And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.
Byron York polices the Sheriff:
Vice President Joe Biden offered a frank assessment of his career in remarks at a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night. According to a White House pool report, Biden, surrounded by the city’s movers and shakers, praised former Mayor Richard M. Daley and then said: “I never had an interest in being a mayor ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce. That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.”
From an opposite perspective, Biden’s remarks recalled the criticism Sarah Palin, a former mayor herself, once made in 2008 about then-candidate Barack Obama’s qualifications to be president. “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities,” Palin told a cheering at the Republican National Committee that year. Now, Biden says being a mayor was something to be avoided “’cause that’s a real job.”
Even today, inside the liberal bubble, they freak out when people like Mitt Romney suggest Pres. Obama’s resume was a bit lacking. There will be no outrageous outrage from the left about the Veep, which likely says less about their hypocrisy than it does about the irrelevance of Sheriff Joe.
