Biden tells the truth

Never missing an opportunity to put his foot in his mouth, Joe Biden commits the classic Washington gaffe, defined by Michael Kinsley as accidentally telling the truth, this time among friends at the House Democratic caucus, meeting in Philadelphia. C-SPAN was there with its cameras.

Daniel Halper captured the magic moment for the Weekly Standard:


"To state the obvious, the past six years have been really, really hard for this country. "And they've been really tough for our party. Just ask [former DCCC chair] Steve [Israel]. They've been really tough for our party. And together we made some really, really tough decisions -- decisions that weren't at all popular, hard to explain."

As they say down South, “Bless his heart!”
