Foot-in-mouth disease is an inheritable trait?

That may be a profitable line of research worthy of a government grant! While speaking off-the-cuff at a political event in North Carolina, Beau Biden, former Delaware Attorney General and son our illustrious vice-president, said the following:

At the N.C. Democratic Party’s annual fundraising dinner, Biden mentioned that Romney didn’t seek a second term as Massachusetts governor, suggesting his failed economic policies hurt him. “I’ve never met a successful politician who didn’t run again,” said Biden, the Delaware attorney general.

Instead of laughs, Biden’s remark was met with groans from the audience. Why?

Because North Carolina’s own governor, a Democrat, has chosen not to run for a second term. Awkward…

Maybe Beau was making a loving Father’s Day weekend tribute to Joe. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    If that’s the best he can do, he’ll never equal his daddy as a fool with verbal diarrhea.
