Rod Dreher on Joe Biden, Moral Idiot

Sez he:

The view from the Obama Administration:

Vice President Joe Biden said transgender discrimination is “the civil rights issue of our time” during a visit to a Florida field office on Tuesday, according to pool reports.

That’s something. The current administration is not in the least concerned about preserving unborn life, even under a “safe, legal, and rare” regime, but the vice-president says there is no more urgent civil rights concern than protecting transgenders from discrimination. I look forward to the Letter From the Birmingham Jail produced by the Civil Rights Movement Of Our Time. Meanwhile, Biden has given both liberal and conservative voters a timely reminder of the priorities of this Democratic administration. If you like this kind of thing, vote Obama, for more of the same. If not, not. For me, this is another indication of how religious liberty is likely to fare under Obama and the judges he appoints, in the face of gay civil rights claims.

Has Biden always had a brain the size of a cue ball?

    It’s almost unfair picking on Biden except that he’s the Vice President so he’s fair game. Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pray for us!

    Do you mean “literally, not figuratively”?

    “Joe Biden, Moral Idiot.

    Take the “moral.” Leave the “idiot”.

    I think he means what he said, because what he said doesn’t mean what it used to mean.

    There’s been a cheapening of language. Hyperbole is free now, so it’s used in abundance. Look at what’s happening here in the Seattle area. There’s talk of extending ‘rights’ because it’s ‘only fair’ and there’s no possible way anyone could remotely feel otherwise and not be an offensive homophobic troglodyte. For all of its supposed education, our town has largely forsaken measured reason, replacing it with hyperbolic frenzy.

    Biden has always been a fool. But he is not totally stupid, although he is definately below average intelligence. He also has always been mean, conniving, patronizing, incompetent, and a pathological liar.

    Its amazing to think that this clown could actually be President. Obama is dangerous and a Marxist, but he is not stupid. Biden is proof that we are a nation in decline. In past campagins, anyone would have laughed at the idea of a blockhead like him as VP or any other important position.
