Opening Arguments

Foot foot in mouth mouth

There was some talk that Sarah Palin might be offered her own talk show. But, really, wouldn't we be more entertained if Joe Biden got one?

Telling voters in this swing state that "change is on the way," the Democratic vice presidential candidate offered one of his now-expected random introductory tangents.

The latest was about his sister, Val, his wife Jill, and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who introduced the Bidens at the rally of 1,100 people in the gym at Longview Community College.

Biden called his sister a "girl-boy," meaning a tomboy, and then explained that girl-boys are softer than "girl-girls."

"Random introductory tangents." Good one.
