Readers, let's be real:
The only reason I was actually pleased that Joe Biden was chosen as Obama's running mate was because as VP he would have the ability to stick his foot in his mouth in even MORE fun and hilarious ways. He, sadly, hasn't really lived up to my expectations here, so, this is long overdue, and not even that bad. I think, mostly, Joe Biden still doesn't understand how microphones work, in that if you stand near them, even if you don't want them to catch what you say, they cannot read your mind and will broadcast it loudly anyway. Given Biden's understanding of TV's, I think this is plausible.
