Last week, I noted that LA Times blogger/former Laura Bush press secretary is trying desperately to portray Vice President Joe Biden as a buffoon. Over the weekend, Malcolm dropped any hint of subtlety and just came right out and called Biden stupid:
the secretary, who seems surprisingly intelligent for a government employee from the state that sent Joe Biden to the U.S. Senate all those years, has since removed the two-page advice from the website.
This morning, Malcolm continued his habit of emphasizing the difference in the ages of President Obama and VP Biden:
For all 36 years of his long Senate career, Biden used the Wilmington station daily on his commute to and from the Capitol. Which means that Biden was riding the rails as a U.S. senator way back when the current president was on an elementary school playground.
That probably seems innocuous, but Malcolm regularly includes lines like that in his posts, for no apparent reason - other than that he must think he's making fun of Biden for being old, or Obama for being young, or both. In any case, he's starting to come off as a bitter crank who still hasn't gotten over last November's election.
