And to think how close we came in 2008 to having a vice president whose phrasing and sentence choices during speeches we’d have to parse and explain and justify.
Either America’s oldest living graduate of the Vic Arpeggio Hipster Speech Academy is saying that what the survivors went through during the terrorist attack last year was worth it — losing loved ones and/or being injured themselves — as some sort of catharsis, or that it was worth it for Joe himself to benefit from hearing their statements. Either way doesn’t speak well of the man.
On the other hand, this speech, and Joe’s willingness to at least be in the same room with victims of Islamofascist terrorism puts him one up on his boss.
Shotgun Joe’s planning on running in 2016, you know. I hope he does. The Gutless Old Party would take it easy on him. But Hellary Clinton has taped every one of his idiocies, and will use them to dismember him, strew the body parts on the bloody street, and sow what’s left with bitter salt.
