A Biden sampler
Joe Biden has always struck me as a mouth moving nonstop, driven by an endless supply of narcissism, and with no brain connected to it. Not that he’s literally always brainless, but he does seem that way a great deal of the time. Powerline supplies some devastating Biden moments.

Of Biden, you wrote, “Not that he’s literally always brainless, but he does seem that way a great deal of the time. “LA replies:
Remarkable. Biden uses “literally” the way Rudolf Giuliani and Newt Gingrich preface every adjective with “very, very.” In all three cases it shows a thoughtless person flapping his lips, using an emphatic adverb to make it sound as though he has something weighty to say, when he has nothing to say.Paul K. replies:
I just glanced at NRO and saw that Peter Wehner commented on Biden’s frequent use of “literally.” Obviously, I wasn’t the only one struck by it. I listened to the speech live and found myself bracing for the next “literally.” Only, not literally, but figuratively.Neil P. writes:
I hear he is such a great foreign policy expert, but other than gabbing in the Senate since age 29 or whatever, can someone tell me what his expertise is? Has he negotiated a single treaty or talked to a single foreign leader when what he said represented anything other than his own opinion?Alex M. writes:
Joe Biden will do for hair plugs what Bob Dole did for Viagra. Little by little men will be freed from the clutches of the Matriarchy. I am Geezer, hear me wheeze!
