Reporter Barbara West rocks! Finally, someone in the Drive By Media asks Joe Biden some tough questions. As Michelle Malkin says, Best interview of Joe Biden ever. Since, liberals aren't used to being asked tough questions, Biden and the Obama campaign threw a fit about it. They canceled an interview with Biden's wife that was going to be done by the same news station. Unbelievable! Can you imagine what Obama and Biden would be like if they got treated the same way that Sarah Palin and McCain do on a daily basis? Talk about having thin skin.
Obama recently said that Fox News is probably costing him 3 percentage points in the polls. If we are to believe that, then McCain is losing 3 points per station that favors Obama. Lets see, that would be 6 points for MSNBC and CNN and 12 more for the Drive By Media networks.
Malkin also makes a great case that Biden is by far the scarier candidate to be a heart beat away from the presidency. Here is an excerpt:
If the prospect of Joe Biden sitting a heartbeat away from the presidency doesn't give you palpitations, you are not paying attention.
Hysterical Sarah Palin-bashers on the unhinged left and elitist right have dominated campaign press coverage and pop culture. They've ridiculed her family, her appearance and her speech patterns. They've derided her character, her parenting skills, her readiness and her intellect.
Meanwhile, the increasingly erratic, super-gaffetastic Joe Biden gets a pass. What does the guy have to do to earn the relentless scrutiny and merciless mockery he deserves? Answer: wear high heels, shoot caribou and change the "D" next to his name to an "R."
Nightly news shows still haven't tired of replaying Palin's infamous interview with Katie Couric. But how many times have they replayed Biden's botched interview with Couric last month -- in which he cluelessly claimed: "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
Er, here's what really happened: Roosevelt wasn't president when the market crashed in 1929. As for appearing on TV, it was still in its infant stages and wasn't available to the general public until at least 10 years later.
During the lone VP debate earlier this month, the increasingly erratic, super-gaffetastic Biden demonstrated more historical ignorance that Palin would never be allowed to get away with: "Vice President Cheney's been the most dangerous vice president we've had probably in American history," he said. "He has the idea he doesn't realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that's the executive -- he works in the executive branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that."
Article 1 of the Constitution defines the role of the legislative branch, not the executive branch. You would think someone who has served 36 years in government -- the same someone who is quick to remind others of his high IQ and longtime Senate Judiciary Committee chairmanship -- would know better.
Biden's erratic and gaffetastic behavior is the least of America's worries. He's worse than a blunderbuss. He's an incurable narcissist with chronic diarrhea of the mouth. He's a phony and a pretender who fashions himself a foreign policy expert, constitutional scholar and worldly wise man. He's a man who can't control his impulses.
And he could be a heartbeat away.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled Palin-says-"You Betcha" skit.
I am still incredulous that so many people are merciless towards Sarah Palin but give Joe Biden a pass. What does he have to say or do to get people to realize that he doesn't have what it takes to be a VP, let alone the President?
