Oh, That Joe! (No. 46 in a Series) — Gaffes? What Gaffes?

Nov 4, 2008 8:33am

Speaking to reporters on his campaign plane Monday, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said that in the past two and a half months since Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., selected him as running mate, he has not made any "big gaffes."

"I think we’ve run a really good campaign," Biden said on his trip from Kansas City, Mo., to Columbus, Ohio.

"And for all the stuff about gaffes, I don’t think there have been any real gaffes," Biden said. "I mean, I don’t see anything in your polling data demonstrating any of that stuff you guys love to write about.

"I never make any big, big gaffes," boasted the loquacious Blue Hen. "I mean, you guys love saying that about me, but I tell you what, just look at the numbers. I don’t have any problem with what I’ve said and there’s nothing I’ve said that I would back off of."

Really? Not even that Obama would be tested by the world and his response wouldn’t immediately be apparent as the right one? Which Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., immediately seized upon?

Gird your loins!!
