Score one for Biden

I was… disappointed with Obama’s choice of running mate. Not that I particularly dislike Biden, but I didn’t really see anything to like, either. Until today.
McCain camp says Biden ‘sunk to a new low’
Specifically, they are calling out a comment Biden made:

“I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have both the joy…and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect,” he said. “Well, guess what folks? If you care about it, why don’t you support stem cell research?”

Well… why don’t they? Instead of feigning outrage, why don’t they answer the damned question?

McCain-Palin spokesman Ben Porritt said, “Playing politics with this issue is disturbing”

No. What’s disturbing is opposing stem cell research for political reasons, when it could be so beneficial to so many people. Children included.

…not to mention the fact that it’s the Republicans who usually drag out the old, tired “think about the children!” argument… Talk about pots and kettles…

    Such a brilliant, well-considered, and coherent argument. You might want to check your grammar before hitting “submit” next time, though. Wouldn’t want people thinking you’re dumb…
