Biden Misses the Medal Podium

Over the weekend, Vice President Joe Biden took time out of his busy schedule of watching the Olympics to defend the administration from former VP Dick Cheney and his criticisms of the Obama Administration's handling of certain terrorists.

In so doing he also took a shot at Massachussets newest senator Scott Brown and missed... badly.
“On CBS’s “Face the Nation” last weekend, Biden shot back that he doesn’t “know whether the new senator from Massachusetts understands: When you get tried in a military tribunal, you get a lawyer, too.”

“He’s trying to give me a lesson on military law, and I didn’t think it was appropriate,” Brown told POLITICO. “And I thought he was off base when it comes to explaining to the American people that somehow I need a lesson on whether people get attorneys — of course they get attorneys. There’s a difference as to what type of attorney they’re going to get and when they’re going to get that attorney, and how are they treated, and what rights do they, in fact, get.”

Brown said he is particularly incensed by Biden’s remarks because he’s served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard for more than 30 years and is currently the Guard’s top defense attorney in New England.

“I know the military rules and regulations and procedures from A to Z,” Brown said.”

Earlier in the week Biden claimed a Democratic Iraq was about to be a great success story for the Obama administration, thanks to his efforts. Bill McGurn has that story here.Just keep talkin' Joe, that's what yer good at.

It's only right that Biden leaves with a gold medal.
His boss won the Nobel for being just as inconsequential.

Obama did a wonderful job in Iraq. Saddam would be proud!

Biden is so inconsequential that he should get a gold for each event.
