I disagree to some level. I don't buy the idea that Biden is this jovial, loose cannon who is a natural buffoon. I think the real Joe Biden is the
Joe Biden that America first saw back in the 1988 presidential campaign. In that campaign he exposed himself as a plagarist. Going further back, the
episode in which he directly plagarised a British politician, essentially presenting a mirror version of the speech as his own, opened the door for
the nation to learn that Joe Biden was a crappy student in college and had plagarism issues there as well. He graduated Syracuse Law School near the
bottom of his class, then used his political position to later have much of his record stricken, including the accusations and evidence of
I think that Joe Biden repackaged himself following the 88 race in an attempt to simply survive. Let's face it, when you really have no power
whatsoever and are essentially the White House's "Maid in Waiting", you can be pretty popular as the vilage idiot. That's what Biden is shooting
for. The VP position affords him the luxury of being relevent and, so long as he comes off as a non threatening, bumbling fool, he's enjoying more
buzz surrounding him than he ever has at any point in his life.
Don't get me wrong here, I am by no means suggesting the man is even remotely intelligent. I just think the lovable town crazy routine is an act to
mask the gross inadequacies of his IQ and integrity.
