Joe Biden knows what he is doing.

This is a big fucking deal.
– Vice President Joe Biden, referring to the passage of healthcare insurance reform. And he is right.
Here is something you don’t see every day. Fox News actually apologizes for doctoring a year old video of Joe Biden (who was quoting John McCain) supposedly claiming the the “fundamentals of the economy are strong.” It was an outrageous attempt to put false words in Biden’s mouth. An apology is the least they could do.
Yesterday, Joe Biden swore in a number of White House staffers, with Obama standing by his side. “Loose Lips” Biden couldn’t resist a dig at Chief Justice Roberts. From what I see, President Obama was none too happy about that.
The Bidens, Joe and Jill, are likely to be a continuing source of unintentional humor during the Obama administration. Case in point: yesterday, Jill Biden publicly stated that Joe had been offered his choice of positions in the Obama administration: Vice Presiden OR Secretary of State. The Obama administration denied this, but it sure looks like the Bidens stepping on Hilary Clinton’s toes.
