Creative Minority Report: "Most Vain Man on the East Coast" to Become Fodder for Media Gaffe Mill
Matthew Archbold foresees increased media coverage of Vice President Biden's gaffes in the months and years to come, as the media uses the Vice President as a whipping boy to prove their "even handedness" in reporting on the Obama Administration:
... Obama has essentially invited the press to laugh at his Vice President.My Comments:
And like I said, it's a perfect storm because here you have a situation where the press finds itself unable or unwilling to say anything negative about the President so they're going to go ferociously after Joe Biden. Expect a spike in the amount of Joe's gaffes to get reported in coming months. And their mocking treatment of Joe will act as cover for the mainstream press who will point to their rough treatment of Joe as a sign of even handedness.
But the hilarity doesn't end there because then you have Joe Biden who may be the most vain man on the east coast who will not be pleased at all with turning into a national joke so he'll continually court microphones and cameras in an effort to seem relevant and smart. And thus you have a spiraling effect where Joe talks himself into irrelevance. Joe will actually court his own destruction. And Obama will watch him do it...
Couldn't happen to a "nicer" guy.
