Once again, Ted Cruz shows us all why he's got 5% in Iowa right now. Now Joe Biden is a bit of a blow hard, it's true. He's well known for sticking his foot in his mouth himself and he's frequent fodder for many Republicans. But he's been in public service for forty years and has been through more family tragedy than a decent person would wish on anyone. Oh yeah, and he's the elected Vice President of the United States who just lost his son.
But the supposedly devout "Christian" (I thought that word implied kindness and forgiveness), family values conservative and founding father-loving Texas senator keeps showing more of his true self.
This guy, whatever you think of his politics, really does seem to be a rather disgusting human being. The things he's said about the LGBT community, his demagoguery and grand standing in the senate and his fear mongering on any number of issues make him scary. But making a joke about Vice President Biden a week after his son dies of brain cancer, wow.
There's literally zero political upside there. Didn't one of his many advisers warn him not to make the joke? Or did he think it was a clever idea and do it on his own?
This guy is increasingly making Sarah Palin look politically intelligent, moderate and reasonable. And even she knows deep down she's not qualified to be President. 5% in Iowa right now, I wonder what kind of crazy offensive stuff he'll say when he gets really desperate...
