Joe Biden Confused About What Century We're In

Another entry from the Gaffe-o-Matic for the "If this were Sarah Palin ..." files:

The Associated Press dutifully scrubbed the flub in reporting the Vice-President's remarks:
“I absolutely refuse to accept the notion that the United States of America is not going to lead the world economically throughout the 21st Century,” Biden said during remarks to supporters on the Delta campus.
I wonder if Sarah Palin would have been given the same consideration? Yeah, right. To ask the question is to provide the answer.

Thank God that America was spared from having a total bufoon a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Oh ... wait ...

I don't think it's the slip-up on the century that is newsworthy here; anyone can slip up like that. Heck, I wrote a check about two years ago and wrote "1987" as the year. (Don't even ask me why. It's not even the year I graduated.)

What's newsworthy is that the AP cleaned it up in their release! You're dead-on: they'd pillory Palin for the same mistake. Dan Quail was ridiculed for less. George Bush and Ronald Reagan were derided for statements like that.

But Biden, well ... he's part of The One's administration and deserves protection.

[insert raspberry sound here]
