Joe Biden: The Lyin’ King’s Presidential Insurance Policy

Written by Marilyn Assenheim on June 13, 2013

— Biden, stunned that two freshman Senators (Rand Paul and Ted Cruz) were exerting so much power, pleaded with the audience to keep others of their ilk out of the Senate.

— Biden complained that with The Lyin’ King out of the hunt, “blacks and Hispanics won’t automatically turn out to vote.”

–Introducing Al Gore, Biden stated that the Supreme Court made an incorrect decision: “This man was elected president of the United States of America … No, no, no. He was elected president of the United States of America. But for the good of the nation, when the bad decision in my view was made, he did the right thing for the nation … Al, you set an example for this country that is going to live as long as recorded history, about the man who won by a decision that I think constitutional scholars now and in the future will conclude was an ill fated decision…”

You get the idea.

Performances like this one, repeated over and over, suggest that Biden was kept around for a second stint because Uncle Joe is The Lyin’ King’s insurance against … um … political displacement. Nothing could ever make The Lyin’ King look good. But Biden comes close.
