Well, not in so many words…
An Obama campaign official says Biden is putting off Monday's trip [to Tampa] in order to ensure that all local law enforcement and emergency management resources can stay focused on Tropical Storm Isaac, which could impact Florida during the [Republican National Convention].
Wait a minute. You mean Tampa hadn't already deputized a special corps of relief workers and paramilitary troops in preparation for any Biden-related fallout?
Of course I'm kidding — all you really need to prevent Biden from causing trouble is to keep him away from hot microphones and bright lights. Still, better safe than sorry. If you have to choose between evacuating a flooded building and monitoring the vice president to make sure he doesn't accidentally invent a new racial slur, you've already lost.
