I guess most folks are use to hearing politicians say stupid things. However, when it comes to saying stupid things nothing in recent memory seems to match the comments made on Thursday by VP Joe Biden. Biden warned people not to take planes or ride in subways in fear of contracting the dreaded swine flu. The statement was so irresponsible, on so many levels, that it's hard to fathom how any reasonable leader could have made such a comment. But then again, he's Joe Biden known for a gaffe a minute. Gail Collins wrote a great column in the Times about this matter which I think tellsit all. I really hope (and expect) that Obama will replace Biden in 2012. And a word for Joe - Hey jerk, you're not in Delaware anymore!!
