Joe Biden is “intoxicated”

Hey, that’s what “Democratic insiders” are saying, not me.

Politico:

Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph — but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night…

Biden has expressed a clear sense of urgency, convinced the Democratic field will be defined quickly — and that it might very well come down to a private chat with Hillary Clinton about who should finish what Barack Obama started.

“He’s intoxicated by the idea, and it’s impossible not to be intoxicated by the idea,” said a Democrat close to the White House.

Well, that would explain a lot.

Hillary has said she doesn’t plan to run in 2016, but it could be true anyway. Let’s hope she doesn’t. Please, please, Joe, run for president. Win or lose, you will be freaking hilarious. The only thing funnier than your perpetual gaffes will be the desperate excuses the press will make for you. That is, the members of the press who still have jobs in four years…

P.S. Biden: “So you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells.” Because it’s harder to hit stuff with an assault weapon than with a shotgun, according to him. So that’s a different message than the one we’re getting from the rest of this administration, isn’t it? Guess Feinstein doesn’t need to ban all those weapons after all. According to Sheriff Joe, they’re useless anyway.
