Yesterday vice president-elect Joe Biden was released from the railcar of silence in which his boss Barack Obama has had him kept, lo these many weeks, so he could sit down with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos for an interview.
When asked why he hasn't resigned from the Senate yet (uh, he hasn't resigned from the Senate yet?), Uncle Joe let fly a bunch of malarkey about how his greatest achievement was being elected by the people of Delaware, not the people of non-Delaware America, so he wants to be sworn in again, for kicks.
GEORGE: But you're not going to stay on and try to preside…
BIDEN: No, no, no, no, no, absolutely not. I've already — if I haven't done it — to be honest with you, I think I've done it, but if I haven't done it, I've signed a letter, will sign a letter saying, notwithstanding the fact I'll be sworn in the first day, I have no intention of staying up until the day that I am sworn in as vice president. Secondly, I yield responsibility to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to John Kerry. No, I have, no.
To be precise, Joe Biden "yielded responsibility to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee" by pinky-swearing with John Kerry in the cafeteria.
They sealed the deal by giving Mitch McConnell a swirlie.
