The Joe Biden Gaffe Track: Double Standards Edition

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on July 10, 2009

It continues to amaze that in last year’s Presidential campaign, then-Senator Biden committed a whole host of gaffes, which, if committed by Sarah Palin, would have resulted in derision, hoots, chuckles, guffaws, and calls for John McCain to find a new running mate.

Now that Joe Biden is Vice President, and his propensity for gaffes has hardly subsided, shouldn’t he be subjected to the same kind of relentlessly tough commentary Sarah Palin would have had to endure if she were Vice President, and she committed the gaffes that Biden has committed?

And I write that as someone who is not much of a fan of Sarah Palin.
