Joe Biden Reacts To Sarah Palin’s Assertion That She Could Beat Obama

A few days ago, Sarah Palin told Barbara Walters that she believed she could beat Barack Obama in 2012, a not surprising assertion from someone who’s thinking of running for President as my co-blogger Steven Taylor noted. Anyway, yesterday, Joe Biden was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and, well, here’s his reaction:

Biden was a little less jocular responding to the question on Larry King Live Thursday:

    Given the proclivity of Biden to come up with exactly the wrong answer, his very fearful response is perhaps the best indication yet that Palin would probably win in a race against Obama. Granted, after the last two years, just about anybody would be to Obama. But there it is.

    Oh, please please please please run, Sarah. Even if you don’t win the nomination, you’ll make the entire Republican party look like the kooks they are. And if you do win – wow, what great Democratic turnout we’d have.

    The fear in your writing, Mirthras, is palpable.
    The fact is, the elimination of thr RINO is the path the left most fears.
