THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT POLITICAL DECISION THE UNICORN RIDER HAS EVER MADE...:

Biden Deplores Own Campaign's Ad (NY Sun, 9/22/08)

The Democratic nominee for vice president, Senator Biden of Delaware, is denouncing a television advertisement released by the campaign he is running along with Senator Obama of Illinois.

During an interview with CBS yesterday, Mr. Biden disowned an Obama-Biden ad that suggested the Republican nominee, Senator McCain, was out of touch because he does not use a computer.

"I thought that was terrible," Mr. Biden told news anchor Katie Couric after she made reference to the ad while asking about the tone of the campaign. After the ad was released, several of Mr. McCain's allies pointed to press reports saying he cannot type because of injuries he incurred while a prisoner during the Vietnam War.

"I didn't know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we would have never done it," the vice presidential nominee said.

This statement just emailed, perhaps notably, not by a Biden-specific aide but by Obama spokesman Bill Burton:

“I was asked about an ad I’d never seen, reacting merely to press reports..."


...was choosing this notorious clown...and in order to give the ticket gravitas?

The Story Behind Biden's Emergency Helicopter Landing in Afghanistan (Jake Tapper, September 22, 2008, Political Punch)

"Ladies and gentlemen, where are we now? Where are we now?" Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said to the National Guard Association today, talking about the war in Afghanistan.

"If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me," Biden said. "Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are." [...]

In February 2008, Biden -- along with Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Chuck Hagel, R-Neb. -- was on a chopper that made an emergency landing in the mountains of Afghanistan.

A snowstorm had forced them down.


It was Al Qaeda's dreaded Weather Weapon!
