Attack Dog

Blue Texan has some good, choice stuff from Joe Biden:
Remember last May when Chimpy went to Israel and compared Barack Obama to Neville Chamberlain? Here's what Biden said:
"This is bullshit. This is malarkey. This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset ... and make this kind of ridiculous statement,” Biden said angrily in a brief interview just off the Senate floor.

And another sample:
The idea that John [McCain] and Joe [Lieberman] are going to eliminate any vestige of Iranian influence in Iraq, bless me father for I have sinned. Are they unaware of a border that has existed there for millennium? Are they unaware of the fact that our guy, Maliki is inviting Ahmadinejad to Baghdad and kissing him on both cheeks, literally not figuratively. Are they unaware of the fact that this government in Iraq feels compelled to visit Tehran to explain what it is that they are attempting to do with a long-term security agreement?

He isn't perfect; he supported the atrocious "bankruptcy reform" bill a few years back that will only make peoples' lives worse as the housing market continues its contraction. Yet, from these little snippets, it is pretty clear he is unafraid to call Republicans on their nonsense.

Good on ya, mate.
