Did the veep not get enough sleep Tuesday night or was he just deep in thought, eyes closed?
Hard to say. But Vice President Joe Biden appeared to pull a Larry Summers on Wednesday afternoon during President Obama's speech on the nation's debt.
I say, "Good for Joe." Did you listen to the speech?
I'd argue there were two responses. 1) Pull your hair out. 2) Take a nap.
Biden made the right choice. And, Patrick Gavin reports, Joe got some nice words from Don Henley:
POLITICO: Lastly, the Recording Academy is also set to recognize Vice President Joe Biden. Does he get a seal of approval from the rock community? After all, he has been a politician in a suit for nearly 40 years.
Henley: Vice President Biden has been a longtime supporter of artists and copyright holders. His pro-copyright record during his tenure in the Senate is unassailable. And as Vice President he was instrumental in the implementation of the Office of the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator. The creative community is very fortunate to call the vice president a friend.
So good for Joe.
