Say it ain't so, Joe


 As the Complete Las Vegan warned loyal readers some posts ago, Sen. Joe Biden is a walking, talking gaffe. He's the sound that bites. If it were not for Sen. Harry Reid, Biden would be the undisputed world champion of goofs. Harry "the war is lost" Reid, however, keeps the contest interesting.

As most will know, Biden is fresh off of his latest: "Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America." Ouch, Joe. Your boss, Sen. Obama's trying to convince voters that he has superior judgment to Sen. John McCain. That comment doesn't say much for his judgment.

But the gaffe you may not have heard about occurred earlier this week in Columbia, Mo. According to the International Herald Tribune, "Say It Ain't So Joe" urged a paraplegic state official to stand up to be recognized. "Chuck, stand up, let the people see you," Biden shouted to State Sen. Chuck Graham, before realizing, to his horror, that Graham uses a wheechair. "Oh, God love ya," Biden said. "What am I talking about?"

That's the exact point, Joe. Who knows what your talking about. Or, what the heck you're doing on that ticket.
