Joe Biden cites military success, with international cooperation, during Bush Administration

I had a tough choice last night – College football, MLB Playoffs and the VP Debates. I compromised…and watched the Football and Baseball games.

So today, after deliberately avoiding watching/reading any reactions to it, I read through the transcripts of last night’s debate. But even without reading the websites, I’m guessing my side is generally onboard with Ms. Palin and the other side is continuing their meme about her unworthiness to even be within the same contiguous 48-States as Senator Obama.

Reading has the added advantage of having to devote much less than the televised hour and a half and you can gloss over all the fluff (and there is a lot of fluff). Politicians say things in the heat of the moment and I usually do not take such apparent gaffes that seriously but…

What the hell is Joe Biden talking about???

“When we kicked -- along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, "Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't know -- if you don't, Hezbollah will control it."

Just for fun, try and find one fact within the quote that is correct.

But knowing the current sensibilities of the much of the press, I’m sure this will be spun as only a person with Joe Biden’s smarts and foreign policy experience could have come up with such a whopper.

I made the right decision last night.

There's something in there that's accurate: "I ............................... don't know ........"

OK, it's Dowderized a bit, but it's there. Really.
