Is there any politician less well suited to diplomatic pronouncements than self-proclaimed “foreign policy expert” Joe Biden (as was sadly on display in his recent Wall Street Journal interview about U.S.-Russia relations)? Have his gaffes — previously just innocuous and pathetic — now turned dangerous?
Biden Mocks Putin
By Asher Embry
Gaffes all the time, does “Clueless Joe”
He’s mostly harmless, this we know.
But what once seemed hilarious
Has turned to deadly serious.
In Biden’s recent blithering,
He said that Russia’s “withering.”
Then started taunting Putin and
He said we hold the upper hand.
Though we may really think that way,
It’s hardly something we would say.
It’s not the wisest strategy
To mock a former KGB,
Or Vladimir, Joe’ll surely give,
Excuse to be provocative.
We’re fortunate the Lord did bless
Our VP with profound finesse.
(Took Hillary to clean his mess.)
Joe needs to learn to “calibrate”
His comments, not just simply state
Each thought that jumps inside his head.
It’s best to think it through instead.
(A lesson not just meant for Joe;
Last week, Gates taught the same to “O.”)

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
