Wasn’t Joe Biden added to the Democratic ticket for comic relief? Well, he’s not funny any more. The other day he accused Republicans, who oppose the “jobs bill” (a.k.a. Stimulus II), of wanting women to be raped and convenience store clerks to be shot. I know Biden is saying these slurs with the tacit approval of the rest of the administration, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Barack Obama replaces him for the 2012 race.
