Geez, I thought McCain was off to a bad start this week.
Then along came the Gaffe Twins again.
Joe Biden’s trashing his campaign’s moronic e-mail attack ad: “Terrible.”
Barack Obama’s trashing Joe Biden’s initial refusal to back the AIG bailout: He “should have waited.”

Michelle & Co. –
Looks like Joe Biden, in his interview with Katie Couric, was copying off the wrong classmate’s exam again. He said (video here):
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said, ‘look, here’s what happened.'”
My recollection is that the stock market crash was in 1929. Two problems here: Television did not even exist in 1929, and FDR was elected in 1932, so he wasn’t even the leader at the time of the crash. When Joe was in history class, was he cheating by looking over the class dunce’s shoulder, or does he just make this stuff up? Of course, TV celebrity Katie Couric also didn’t note that Biden’s statement was doubly incorrect. Her goal was a softball puff piece.”
