Byron York relates this Joe Biden vignette with an air of thumping disapproval (York almost laughably calls it Biden's "frank assessment of his career"), but it's the sort of thing I find endearing about the vice president:
"I never had an interest in being a mayor 'cause that's a real job. You have to produce," said Biden last night, in Chicago, at a Democratic fundraiser. "That's why I was able to be a senator for 36 years."
Now who wouldn't find that touchingly self-effacing and damn funny, as well as a rather suggestive evaluation of the United States Senate? Right-wing hacks, that's who.
