As if some of Joe Biden’s recent comments weren’t buffoonish enough…

Did you catch what he said?

“Part of what a leader does is to instill confidence and to demonstrate what he or she knows what he’s talking about…”

Hey, that sounds great! So, do you know what you’re talking about, Joe? Why, he illustrated this statement by referring to what Franklin D. Roosevelt did when the stock market crashed!!! Sure! We all know what he did, Joe; as you said, he got on television and…wait…just a minute…Stock Market crash, October 1929, during the first year of Herbert Hoover’s presidency, some 3+ years before FDR became president. Oh, and the TV thing? Well, uh…according to Wikipedia, “There were only a few dozen stations operating at the end of the decade”. Oh, did I mention? “The decade” in question was the 1940s!!!

As I was saying, if Joe the Clown weren’t enough, we’re now treated to the musings of U.S. Representative Alcee Hastings.

Florida congressman points to Palin to rally Jews to Obama

What the…ummm…honorable…ummm…congressman said was,

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention. Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”

Imagine a Republican race-baiting that shamelessly; he’d be crucified. Since Alcee Hastings has the right, “enlightened” politics, he’ll get a nice pass from the sycophant mainstream media, I’m willing to bet. Bigotry like this is fine if you’re liberal, apparently.

    Alcee Hastings – Living proof that Democrats know no shame.

    Alcee Hastings was the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office. Charged with accepting a $150,000 bribe, the U.S. House of Representatives impeached him for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. He was then convicted by the United States Senate and removed from office.

    The Senate had the option to forbid Hastings from seeking federal office again, but did not do so. He was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1992, representing Florida’s 23rd district.

    He is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and was elected President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe in July 2004. Today, as a Senior Democratic Whip, he is an influential member of the Democratic leadership.

    He is a member of the powerful House Rules Committee and a senior Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). On the HPSCI, he is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

    Co-conspirator, attorney William Borders went to jail for refusing to testify in the impeachment proceedings, but was given a full pardon by Bill Clinton on his last day in office.
