Moderate Earthquakes Shook the Coast

Grant Butler of the Oregonian  reports, “A pair of moderate earthquakes shook the coast of Northern California and Southwest Oregon late Saturday and Sunday morning.According to the United States Geological Survey, a 5.0 earthquake occurred at 10:01 p.m. Saturday in the Pacific Ocean about 93 miles southwest of Gold Beach, Oregon, or about 124 miles to the Northwest of Eureka, California.

Crazy Joe Didn’t Say

OK, all my liberal, fact-checking friends, Crazy Joe Didn’t Say “…when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.”

 Crazy Joe Didn’t Say

Joe Biden was speaking with Katie Couric when he was speaking about the role of the White House in a financial crisis.

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.'”

As Reason’s Jesse Walker footnotes it: “And if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, ‘Who is that guy? What happened to President Hoover?'”

The Christian Science Monitor after that comment asked if Joe Biden was the John Beluschi of politics, that’s right, the Vice President of the United States.

With Democrats on the verge of a possibly deflating vote, Mr. Biden played the role of defiant cheerleader this weekend. He sat down with CNN’s Gloria Borger and said he’s not buying all those forecasts that show the GOP making big gains.

“I don’t agree with the odds makers,” said Biden. “I predict we’re going to, we’re going to keep the Senate.”

OK, so Joe was not as worked up as John Belushi in his famous “Animal House” speech. (“Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? [Expletive] no!”)

The two things got conflated and Crazy Joe (John Beluschi) said the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

But let’s not forget, he did say:

”If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.”

”A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!”

”I promise you, the president has a big stick. I promise you.”

—Joe Biden, citing Theodore Roosevelt’s famous quote, ”Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” (April 26, 2012)

”Stand up, Chuck, let ’em see ya.”

—Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008

”You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…. I’m not joking.”

—Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006

Why do we believe that Crazy Joe Biden said that about Germany bombing Pearl Harbor? Because he isn’t the sharpest tool in the tool box. In fact, he’s right up there with Shirley Jackson Lee who said in 1997, while on a trip to the Mars Pathfinder operations center in California, Jackson Lee asked if the Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969.
