Yes, Biden's A Blowhard


I met Joe Biden twice (in 2004) and he didn't strike me as a particularly serious leader. For instance, during the same meeting (April 2004), he told participants that the US troops would surely withdraw from Irak within six months ("Mark my words"!) and then asked them to consider allowing a NATO mission in Irak . At one point, while he was trying to make some kind of point, he pointed his finger as yours truly and said something like "bureaucrats are sad - look at this man"). Well, I was actually just bored to death, but that was no reason to wake me up. Overall, he seemed to me utterly unable to make a clear, assertive point.

But the big news is that David Frum is citing a frog.
