Biden: Gets away with endless idiotic comments because his media-elite pals “know” he’s no idiot.
Kirsten Powers, columnist, blogger, and Democrat political analyst on Fox News, authored a scalding critique of the MSM today in The New York Post’s Blatant Bias.
Speaking of most of the media’s refusal to print or air the real meat (full quote below) of Senator Joe Biden’s October 19th incredible fund-raising rhetoric, which Powers characterized as a “spectacular bomb,” she asks “what gives,” and says the “stock answer is:” “It’s just Biden being Biden.”
Again the media showed their incredible bias by giving scattered coverage of Biden’s statements.
There were a few exceptions. On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski flipped incredulously through the papers, expressing shock at the lack of coverage of Biden’s remarks. Guest Dan Rather admitted that if Palin had said it, the media would be going nuts.

Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
