The wit and wisdom of Joe Biden

Now that we don’t have Sarah Palin to kick around any more, three cheers for the new blog Joe Biden Said That? which records – often with video clips – the Vice President’s numerous gaffes. There is this classic spelling epic fail:
Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.
There is this twofer on the Depression:
When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here's what happened.’
Television was introduced 10 years after the Wall Street Crash, and Hoover was president. And here is Biden on swine flu:
I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places right now. It's not that it's going to Mexico, it's that you are in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes everywhere through the aircraft. That's me.
It’s early days yet, but this could be worth following.
