If Atticus Finch saw Joe Biden stumbling up the street, foaming at the mouth, snarling and wild-eyed, he'd firmly tell his children to go in the house while he (ahem) took care of the problem. Because Uncle Joe is, at this point, barking mad.
How else to explain his campaign speech yesterday in Virginia in which he told a racially mixed audience that it is Mitt Romney's goal to "put y'all back in chains"?
He did not, however, specify whether the audience members would be shackled before or afterRomney gave them all cancer and Ryan killed their elderly parents.
We expect the worst from Democrats, and expect sheer lunacy from Joe Biden - but is there really nothing off limits for these angry, despicable liars? For awhile, the ugliness coming out of their mouths was almost funny in an appalling way, like a drunken college freshman upchucking beer at a frat party.
But the Democrats' four-year toga party is over. It's "the morning after in America."
And the sight of Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and the liberal left passed out in their own rhetorical vomit is both sad and disgusting.
