Janet Napolitano, our new Homeland Security Secretary, is trying to clean up after Joe Biden. She is telling us what Joe really meant to say yesterday when he said Americans should avoid planes and trains, or contained areas. It is what Joe was telling his family. Joe even got medical when he explained the destructive path of a simple sneeze. Napolitano says Joe just failed to qualify his advice. He meant to say ; ” if you are sick, then avoid these confined spaces”. Right, you wish!
Ms. Napolitano needs to learn that it is easier to contain the swine flu than it is to contain Joe Biden.
The Joe Biden’s of the world will not get you in trouble. They will keep you out of trouble. The adminstration would be well-served to learn that dangerous candor can provide a much needed shield. Would Nixon have suffered the shame had Martha Mitchell surfaced much earlier?
Turn Joe loose! Let him fire away. The country needs him now more than ever.
