In Joe Biden’s World, Al Franken Is A “Leading Legal Scholar”
The Vice-President’s tendency toward hyperbole is getting just a little ridiculous:
Vice President Joe Biden described former Saturday Night Live comedian, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., as a “leading legal scholar,” presumably in the Senate, today.
“He has been one of the leading legal scholars,” Biden said of Franken today, according to the pool report.
Jonathan Turley comments:
Franken is clearly smart and has proven a leader on many issues. However, Biden’s tendency to use superlatives where mere adjectives would do has become rather pathological.
