CASTLEWOOD, Va. — Delaware Sen. Joe Biden joined Va. Gov. Tim Kaine and Rep. Rick Boucher as guests of union coal miners at the 13th annual fish fry at the Russell County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

At around 7:00 of the video, Biden reveals a previously unreported part of his background.

Was this a verbal "foot fault"? Yes.

If McCain said it, would it be ignored? You decide.

At 18, with a rank as low as Private, E-1, I was in charge of intelligence early warning on the bulk of the Korean DMZ. Does that make me qualified to be the president or vice president of the United States? I daresay I know more about military & foreign affairs than Senator Obama, so why does he have a better than 50% chance of actually being POTUS come January? Someone please wake me up from this nightmare!

Biden: "I was in charge of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe"

Oh, so it was his fault.

Glad we cleared that up.

Hold it!

I thought DemocRats hated Coal. Now they're at a Coal Miners Union picnic hunting for votes?

What am I missing here? I would love to see “No Energy” Pelosi talking with the Coal Miners.

Better yet, he jokes that McCain was “supposed to, but never did” carry Joe’s bags. Biden really has an affinity for gaffes about the disabled. We go from “Stand up, Chuck” to “Pick up, John.”

I'm sure there are millions of Americans of Indian descent looking to vote for Senator Biden, as well!

From the text:
Biden spoke of two things he learned growing up. One, was that you learned a person’s priorities not by them telling you what they value, but by looking at their budget.
Er. What the heck does that mean?!

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, that’s not the measure of success, it’s how quickly you get back up.”

“I’ve never seen so many people in America get knocked down and their government do so little to get them back up as I have these past eight years,” Biden added. SOOO. When I get knocked down, it’s a sign of my success how fast the government gets me back on my feet? Something fundamentally changed in that old axiom.

So now Biden has resorted to plagarizing Chumbawamba performing Tubthumping.

Listened. Didn’t hear anything about what you said. Did they edit it out? It sure wasn’t at around 7 minutes in, that’s for sure. I noticed there were many edits on the video, though.

Furthermore, we never see a wide shot of the “crowd.” My best guess is a couple hundred. Really not getting much bang for their bucks.

Wasn’t Chumbawamba a semi-anarchist band that hated politicians? Why aren’t they suing Joe?

Kaine said. Obama and Biden are “regular, basic, decent folks”

Sure. "Regular decent folks" who just happen to fight for infanticide and choose Leftist terrorists, racist demagogues, and mobsters as their preferred associates.

How is that Biden and Kaine, both of whom wear their Catholicism on their sleeves, are in a party which has a guiding principle of killing the unborn?

Biden isn’t half the man McCain is........and Sarah will have him making gaffes that make this one look good.

“Stand up Chuck!”
paraphrase.....McCain was supposed to be carrying my bags, he never did.
