JOEmentum! Catch It!

With the lead-balloon “campaign” of the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua failing to achieve escape velocity, even a complete idiot like the current vice president is starting to dream big dreams:

Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s team is putting out the word that he is leaning in favor of joining the presidential race next month, according to a prominent Democratic fundraiser. The veep’s entrance would dramatically shake up the Democratic contest, confronting front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton with a formidable opponent who is equally well-known across the country and poised to tap a network of major donors.

“They have given increasingly strong signals that Biden is going to throw his hat in the ring,” said New York businessman Jon Cooper, a top bundler for President Obama’s 2012 campaign who has been testing the waters with fellow bundlers for a Biden run. “I’m as confident as I can be that he will be entering the race,” he said.

Well, why wouldn’t he? It was never plausible that a woman defeated by a nobody from the Illinois state legislature and a brief stint in the U.S. senate would simply waltz to the nomination eight years later, no matter what the Clinton lackeys masquerading as network “newsmen” were saying. Hillary! is already getting blown away by a doddering avowed socialist, so why shouldn’t Crazy Uncle Joe take his shot?

The thing is, he could win. And here you thought one Being There president was enough…
