Of course the AP couldn't syndicate an article without inserting a lil' spin. They coulda said she earned all her tax deductions the old fashioned way....by birthing them.....

That last sentence isn’t biased at all. Thank you AP for the information.

So what is so embarrassing about their joint income, that it is so low by Washington standards? Indeed, WTF is up with AP’s last sentence. One could also say that by releasing them on Friday they made the returns fodder for the Sunday talking heads extravaganza.

The McCain-Palin campaign had said the tax returns would be released Monday, but it suddenly put them out Friday afternoon—a time long used by government to reveal embarrassing news because few people watch TV or read newspapers Friday evening and Saturday.

WTF???? does this imply. They don't have a story, but imply there may be a story? Low life's.

Total $2,450,042 income, $3,690 charitable giving.

Bidens charitable giving to salary ratio = .15%

Repeat! That is an average of .15% given to charity through those years. Thats dismal and downright cheap!

Biden’s charity is himself and others have to do the giving. To him. That is what makes elected office so attractive to low achievers. The ability to BS and confuse everyone is all they need to know.

Biden is a firm believer in the expression: "charity begins at home".
