This wasn’t pretty: then again, interviews where you’re being asked to distinguish between your running mate’s views and Karl Marx’s rarely are. Head’s up via Ace of Spades:
The interviewer is Barbara West, of Florida’s WFTV News. The interviewee is, of course, Senator Joe Biden, who graced us with his trademark… thoughts. Some points to consider, Senator:
When you’re pushing back on the perfectly accurate observation that your running mate is attached to the hip to ACORN… don’t quote one of ACORN’s talking points.
Umm… your guy thinks that “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody“. Do try to keep up, Senator.
I understand that you’re not a drinker, Senator. Good: drunken oblivion is too easy an out for you for dealing with the fact that you had to tell the world that Obama’s mistaken views on Iraq were better than yours, let alone John McCain’s.
And, lastly: “I don’t know who’s writing your questions…” What a charming attempt to diminish a reporter who dared ask you questions that you didn’t want to answer. And, just out of curiosity: would you have said that to a man?
