Who loves Joe Biden?
Asked about the John-McCain-is-old ad put up by the Obama campaign, Barack Obama’s running mate said:
“I thought that was terrible, by the way.”
Asked why it was done, he [Biden] said: “I didn’t know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we’d have never done it.”
Late Monday, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton issued a statement from Biden. In it, Biden said he “was asked about an ad I’d never seen” and was “reacting merely to press reports.”
That’s an awfully strong opinion for an ad he’s never seen.

Was there one of those voice-overs at the end of the ad, like Obama’s voice saying, “.. and I approved this ad.”?
If so, either he approved the ad, or he lied, knowing he didn’t really know about its content. Which is worse?
Well, it would be Obama approving the ad, not Biden so it’s possible Biden didn’t see it.
Now there are three candidates running against Obama: Biden, McCain and Palin.
Perhaps instead of “John-McCain-is-old” he thought he heard “John-McCain-is-bald”.
He’s all about hair, you know.
