Joe Biden: Public Enemy No. 2
I must take this opportunity to congratulate the “Court Jester” for again doing a bang-up job in entertaining the masses. With his overwhelming desire to persuade others of his importance and maybe even himself, Joe Biden decided what better way than to divulge classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president – in this case – himself.
It’s true that compromising national security is standard operating procedure these days, but not many politicians are willing to stick their own head into the lions mouth. After a little observation, I get the feeling Joe Biden entered politics because he is too stupid to do anything else.
Normally, this type of national security betrayal is reserved for the New York Times, but Joe in an ego stroking moment decided to cut out the NYT and personally reveal this secret tidbit himself.
During a Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get together and seemingly swap classified information, Biden told his dinner-mates about the existence of a secret bunker located under the old U.S. Naval Observatory. The bunker is believed to be the secure and “formerly undisclosed” location former Vice President Dick Cheney and trusted aides remained under protection after the 9/11 attacks.
Aside from Biden’s need for attention, perhaps we should raise another question. Why did Eleanor Clift, Newsweek magazine’s Washington contributing editor think this information could in any way serve the public by it’s disclosure? Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the action of passing on classified information make her just as guilty and treasonous as Biden?
I would like to think that one day the citizens will get the pleasure of avenging political and media stupidity by throwing a party in the town square just before the public executions, but somehow I think the enemy will get to that before us.
