Satire or not satire? You be the judge.

When you read the title of Jonathan Bernstein's Salon article, "Joe Biden: The 'practically perfect' vice president," you figure he must be joking. However, when you begin reading his story you can see that Bernstein was serious...or was he? Your humble correspondent considers himself to be a good judge of the often fine dividing line between satire and seriousness but in this case I am not so sure. The following paragraph in defense of Biden seems to start out seriously but was Bernstein pulling our legs at the end?

If your idea of the perfect VP is a guy who can smile in front of a camera, but is so stupid he can’t talk and think at the same time, then Joe is your guy.

Read here a few days ago Biden was in rehab for alcoholism in 2009. Imagine if a Republican had done that. 24/7 coverage. Constitutional crisis etc. Rat does it and there’s barely a blip.

If true, they kept that more secret than the bin Laden operational details.

Just in case you haven't seen the video:

I think ol’ Johnnie-boy had written this so-called article over a 2-3-day period, alternating between sobriety and drunkenness, rationality and idiocy.

Let me state this again - - -

What makes me laugh about this whole matter is that Joe is fool, a clown, a stumbling idiot, a dolt, etc.

Osama Obama is a Marxist of the 10th degree.

Joe is merely the distraction to the much more dangerous action of his puppet master.

OMG, that video should be seen by EVERY American, dammit! Sadly, 46% of them wouldn’t know what to make of it and wouldn’t care, as long as their TVs worked, toilets flushed and welfare checks arrived on time. My BP’s spiking!

Well, if you read the article with the thought that Hillary could have come out of that meeting a few days ago as Obama’s running mate, the tone of the article slips back to serious. Picture the President stopping by the Veep’s house for dinner. With Biden, he could wolf down the food without a second thought; with Hillary, there’d be a legion of very nervous food tasters required for every morsel.

PJ, the reason Obama felt that Biden was the perfect VP candidate was that Biden makes Obama look smart. And he’s white. In that team, the black guy looks more competent.

I don't have a clue as to who this "Jonathan Bernstein" is. His blog says, "I'm a political scientist blogging about American politics, especially the presidency, Congress, parties, and elections," but anybody could make a claim like that. Somehow he manages to get his stuff posted at The New Republic and The Washington Post websites, but just what expertise or authority he has or why anybody should listen to him is anybody's gues.

Since it was written for salon.com I’m guessing the author is probably serious. Hilariously misguided it’s true but serious anyway.

Slow Joe was chosen solely to be assassination insurance for Obama. It was felt you’d have to be a special kind of crazy to make Biden President.
