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.”)
