Biden the Blowhard

We've known for a long time that Joe Biden is full of crap (I still can't believe we have to call that dumb SOB "Vice President"). He inaccurately boasted about his high IQ, he told tall tales 'bout his grades as an undergrad and law student, and ...

"I'm the most experienced vice president since anybody." Biden actually said that. And he was serious.

There were some fellers in the early years of the Republic who had pretty impressive resumes when they became vice president (see Jefferson, Thomas and Adams, John, and Calhoun, John C.). But we don't have to go back that far to find someone who was more qualified to be VP than Joe Biden; indeed, we just have to compare Blowhard Biden's CV with that of his predecessor, Dick Cheney.

Biden was a public defender, a county commissioner and an undistinguished U.S. Senator prior to becoming vice president. Dick Cheney, on the other hand, had been a congressional staffer, a presidential chief of staff, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Secretary of Defense, and CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

Upon hearing Joe Biden's "experienced" blowhardery," I couldn't help but think back to Bill Clinton's comment that he was the first president who knew anything about agriculture (even though some of his predecessors were actually farmers). Which begs an important question:

How come Democrats have been so comfortable nominating folks who are not only full of themselves, they're also certifiably full of you-know-what? Inquiring minds want to know.
