In New Jersey, The Blind Leading The Naked

But who can say which is which?

Somehow, Jon Corzine thinks this will help his already-wounded re-election campaign for governor:

Vice President Joe Biden will join Gov. Jon Corzine as the Democratic governor officially kicks off his re-election campaign next month, Corzine announced today.

Corzine zipped out an email to his diehard loyalists...

"I share the President and Vice President's vision for what America can become once again," Corzine wrote. "In times like these, it is essential that our leaders hold firm to our core values and show the courage to do the right thing, and I'm eager for a chance to serve with a partner in the White House and with an economy on the upswing."

Man, you can spend a day just picking apart this example of Corzine's cluelessness. He shares Obama's vision of the socialization of America? Well, he's telling the truth about that. But what "core values" and "courage" have Corzine, Obama and Biden ever shown?

And what's that crap about an "economy on the upswing?" Does Corzine think if he keeps repeating a lie enough, people will start to believe it? Or does he ascribe to Hitler's "Big Lie" theory?

It was defined by Adolf Hitler in his 1925 autobiography Mein Kampf as a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously".

Well, guess who does has the impudence...

Related - if you ever wanted to know how clueless Joe Biden was, this statement should send the Gaffe-O-Matic flying off the scale:

[Biden] commended the former Wall Street executive for helping to craft the Recovery Act, adding that Corzine was the first person he called during the presidential transition period for advice on how to repair the damaged economy. At one point, he called Corzine, who was rumored to be on the short list to become Treasury Secretary, "the smartest guy I know on the economy and finance."

Well, if he's the smartest guy Joe Biden knows on "economy and finance" - a man who's run a somewhat wealthy state into the ground, and may be facing bankruptcy in six weeks - it's no wonder that the nation's economy is disintergrating before our eyes...

...and not because it was offensive or disagreeable, but because it was insane.

That is just terrifying. Biden, I mean. Well, Corzine too. The blind leading the lobotomized, indeed.
