This week's episode of "On the Campaign Trail With Camp Obama" is pure gold. Even more so than last week's when Senator Joe Biden asked a wheelchair bound politician to stand up and be recognized.
Ol' Joe met with Katie Couric , who is not pegging the smart-o-meter herself apparently, but we will get to that in a minute. Biden tells Katie the McCain email ad was "terrible". Realizing the ad was actually done by his team, Biden deflects and says Barry O didn't approve of such an ad before it aired. That part at the end saying "I am Barack Obama and I approved this ad" was planted there by an ingenious member of the Right Wing Conspiracy.
More funny than that is this quote:
"Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people ... this is how we can fix this," Biden said. "When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'look, here's what happened.'"
I am fairly positive FDR did not get on television to communicate anything about the stock market crash in 1929. I am also confident in pointing out that even if television was an available medium to reach Americans, Hoover would have been the one communicating the "here's what happened".
Does Katie Couric call Biden on this? Nope. Not even body language suggesting Ms. Couric realized Mr. Biden didn't have the right president and TV was not yet being massed produced, let alone sitting in everyone's living room.
Moving along, Barry says Joe should have waited before saying he was against the AIG bailout - it sort of deflated Barry's McCain smack down for McCain saying the same thing as Joe! THEN Biden declares he is against clean coal production, but oopsie, Obama is for it.
Its only Tuesday. I do have a thought for the Dufus/Dufus ticket: they should consider using their superior technical acumen and send emails informing the other what they are going to say - perhaps this will increase the odds they actually say the same thing.
**thank you to Mark Levin for the Dufus/Dufus ticket.
