Why do Democrats completely ignore Biden's Scandalous Pass?

Dear Randy:

I actually know of your reference The American Taliban.  I too am an admirer of Aaron Sorkin’s anchor Will McAvoy, a moderate Republican who favors tight budgets and fair play.  The American Taliban comment was unfortunately an example of leftist elitism since the Tea Party is remarkable organic in its inception and membership.  It is not perfect, and to be sure, its members can say some stupid things – but that’s what you get in a democratic-republic.  Average and poorly educated citizens get to vent their own thoughts.  The reason is in the long run re are all better off when average citizens speak their minds.

Again, I came back to your and Bob’s complete lack of interest in stupid things from the left.  Joe Biden is the most gaffe prone politician since WWII.  In 1987 he plagiarized the heart of a speech by British Labour Leader Neil Kinnock.  This was while (Biden) was running for president.  True to form it dealt with a Democratic standard talking point: Class Warfare.  This was copied form the Daily Telegraph article from 2008.

NEIL KINNOCK at Welsh Labour Party conference May 1987:
"Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Was it because our predecessors were thick? Does anybody really think that they didn't get what we had because they didn't have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment? Of course not. It was because there was no platform upon which they could stand"

JOE BIDEN IN Sept 1987 during his first presidential campaign:
"Why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go a university? Why is it that my wife... is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? ...Is it because they didn't work hard? My ancestors who worked in the coal mines of northeast Pennsylvania and would come after 12 hours and play football for four hours? It's because they didn't have a platform on which to stand."

I think that Al Rossi summed it up best when he said that he and his friends tend to only focus on the faults of the opposition.  It’s just human nature.  It certainly seems that way because Joe Biden should be an utter embarrassment but he has been given a permanent waiver from any real scrutiny from the left, unlike former Governor Sarah Palin.

Best, Geoff
