Joe Biden, Truthteller?

James Lileks has a good article up in the New York Post about Joe Biden, our bumbling, loudmouth vice president. Lileks argues that the vice president's various gaffes reveal what the administration is really thinking, and that Biden is just letting the truth slip. It's an interesting theory that runs counter to conventional thinking, which just boils down to Biden being an idiot who can't keep his mouth shut, and who blurts out the first thing that comes to mind. In contrast, Lileks sees Biden as an idiot that can't keep his mouth shut who blurts out the truth -- against Obama's wishes. Politicians are never supposed to tell the unvarnished truth as they see it. The article is pretty amusing and definitely worth reading.

Joe Biden and his antics serve as a prime example of why I laugh at many of Sarah Palin's most extreme critics. Assorted leftists and others pretend to be horrified by the thought that Palin might have been vice president. Yet most of these same people actually voted for an incompetent, clueless buffoon: Joe Biden.
