You all know by now -- one of Joe Biden's jokes at Saturday night's Gridiron Dinner:
The Birther blogs are treating it like another Biden gaffe, joking about a taboo subject, and they could be right.
"You know, I never realized just how much power Dick Cheney had until my first day on the job. I walked into my office, and you know how the outgoing president always leaves the incoming president a note in his desk? I opened my drawer and Dick Cheney had left me Barack Obama's birth certificate."
But I wonder if it was deliberate -- a way of saying, why do we have to buy into the notion that this is an embarrassing situation for us?
