Don't Just Ask About Palin, Where's Joe, the Gaffe Machine?

Joe Biden is becoming "the gift that keeps on giviing" to the faltering McCain Campaign.
a story from CBS News’ Ryan Corsaro who noted that Biden has not taken questions from his press corps for six weeks.

“The handful of reporters from Biden’s national press corps who have followed him incessantly for two months have not had the opportunity to ask questions regarding the “crisis” matter - even to allow Biden to clarify his remarks - because he has not taken questions or held a press availability with his press corps since Sept. 7.”


Corsaro also notes that Biden hasn’t taken questions from the public in awhile — since September 10. And what happened then? Biden “endorsed” Hillary Clinton.

“She’s qualified to be president of the United States of America and easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America. And quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me,” he told the crowd.

Easy to understand

It’s not rocket science why this is happening writes ABC’s Jake Tapper.

“It might not be hard to imagine why this has happened. Biden’s proclivity to speak his mind has provided much fodder for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Republicans…,” writes Tapper. Both Tapper and Corsaro note that Sarah Palin has been much more accessible to the press. Maybe even the most accessible out of the four candidates, ponders Tapper. [my emph]

Meanwhile, on a happier note, the NYT brand CONTINUES TO PLUMMET as Pinch Sulz-bulger runs the brand into the sewer politically. Hopefully, the Old Grey Slut will be dead in five years.
