Okay, so this isn't really a legitimate posting about a pressing political issue... but it's funny, so I'm going to justify this post using the "it was just too good to ignore" grounds.

Apparently, The Hill reports, because Joe Biden wasn't already kind of freaky enough, he for some reason felt the need to declare to a roomful of supporters (who were presumably as disturbed by this thought as me) that he could live without the presidency. "I'd rather be at home making love to my wife while my children are asleep."

Sen. Biden's spokesman, following up on the inquiries of confused reporters and perturbed political wonks everywhere, clarified that Biden was just trying to explain that the presidency was "not an egotistical pursuit for him" and that he is "frankly totally in love with his wife."

My view: thanks for the explanation, dude, but come back to me when you can go back in time and keep the image of Biden in flagrante delecto out of my head.

I know what you're all thinking-- "Gee, Rach, thanks. Now I have to think about this all day, too." To that I say: If I have to suffer, I'm taking all of you down with me.

This has got me thinking... if all it takes to cause controversy in politics is one uncomfortable (but completely morally defensable) thing like Biden's "sex with wife" or Gore's "make out with Tipper", what will happen when our generation makes it to the Congress? Can you imagine what a job the spokespeople will have?

"What the Senator really meant when he discussed last night's proceedings was that he, frankly, has a great deal of love for all women, and deeply respects the cough medicine industry."
