Today at The Blaze, they have a list of 13 things that Joe Biden shouldn’t say in the debate tonight. This isn’t just any list, of course. It’s a list of things he’s already said.
My favorite? It’s hard to choose. I think it’s a toss up between numbers 12 and 13 on the list:
12. SAY THIS ABOUT THE ADMINISTRATION
60% of the time, it works every time.
“If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” –Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009
13. SAY THIS ABOUT HIMSELF
Hey, at least he’s humble.
”Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.” –Joe Biden, speaking at a town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, Sept. 10, 2008
After Obama’s less than stellar performance in his opening debate, and with expectations for Joe Biden’s potential that come straight out of the pages of The Onion, this should be an interesting (and likely entertaining) contest. Biden has his own special off-brand of charisma, and despite his many gaffes, he’ll no doubt score a few points this evening, but I don’t think anyone out there believes he stands a chance on scoring points for substance.
If only the loser of the debate had so be subjected to a dunk tank.
