Biden yarmulke.jpg

If governing truly has become a 200-channel circus and health care is sucking up most of the political oxygen (and the media truly doesn’t care about Afghanistan), then Biden is lucky because, otherwise, this little gem — of the Veep last week in a yarmulke standing before a Jewish star in Israel’s military cemetery in Jerusalem after the Israeli’s ambushed him with a major announcement about a major building push on the east side of town — makes Joe look a little like Dukakis in a tank.
