The previous entry focused on Biden's gaffes and lies in last night's debate from a Middle East perspective, but this whopper is so big, it deserves its own post:
Look, all you have to do is go down Union Street with me in Wilmington or go to Katie’s Restaurant or walk into Home Depot with me where I spend a lot of time and you ask anybody in there whether or not the economic and foreign policy of this administration has made them better off in the last eight years.
It turns out that Katie's Restaurant closed down fifteen years ago. Talk radio host Curtis Sliwa of WABC dug this information up (audio here). He also got puzzled reactions from Wilmington Home Depots asking if anyone had ever sighted Biden. Think any mainstream reporter will follow up and ask him which Home Depot he frequents? Think any journalist will go to that Home Depot to confirm?
Joe Biden's 1988 presidential campaign shut down due to revelations of egregious plagiarism. He was discovered to have plagiarized in law school. He commits gaffes on a daily basis.
Biden succeeded in the debate by covering up who he really is.
Palin succeeded in the debate by conveying who she really is.
See, there you go again . . . Biden's comment was accurate, Katie's Restaurant has not done well these last 8 years. How could it when it had already gone out of business 1 year into the Clinton Administration?
All you need to do is stop into Alice's Restaurant. Walk right in, it's around the back. Just a half a mile from the railroad track.
Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, was on - two years ago on Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the restaurant, but Alice doesn't live in the restaurant, she lives in the church nearby the restaurant, in the bell-tower, with her husband Ray and Fasha the dog. . . .
Joe will come down from his LSD flashbacks soon. We'll be here but he'll be somewhere else.
