Biden, a constant embarrassment

As much as the left and the media have tried to portray Palin as a goof, it's Biden who has put his foot in his mouth over and over. Here is the latest everyone is talking about:

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy." "I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

What does he mean there that "it's not gonna be apparent that we're right?"

Then it gets scarier to me:

"There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, 'Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision'," Biden continued. "Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."

In that convoluted mess you get the idea that Biden knows something we don't about the decisions that Obama is gonna make and he is trying to prepare everyone.

Good grief people. Go vote for McCain. It doesn't matter how long the lines are or what the polls say, Go. Vote. For. McCain.

*Update: Interestingly enough, Biden is off the trail today. No scheduled events. Poor guy. Do you think the Obama people are beating him silly, but where no bruises show?
