And no, I'm not referring to Bill O'Reilly, although heaven knows he qualifies. Does he even listen to people when they're speaking or is he so enthralled with his own self-perceived brilliance that he's busy formulating his next interruption or snide remark?

However, the windbag to whom I refer is one "Plugs" Biden, vice president of the United States, who has pronounced that:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – If the U.S. Congress fails to agree on a healthcare bill soon, the opportunity for a sweeping overhaul of the $2.5 trillion system will be lost for a generation, Vice President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday.

Biden was speaking just hours before Democratic lawmakers were to meet at the White House with President Barack Obama, who is pressing them to reach agreement and pass a bill on his signature domestic policy issue.

Obama has invested much of his political capital in trying to get the Democratic-controlled Congress to pass a healthcare bill by the end of the year. The bill has been passed by the House of Representatives, but Democrats have struggled to win the 60 votes they need in the Senate.

From your mouth to God's ear, Vice President "Rosary Joe" Biden. The healthcare reforms being considered in both the house and the Senate are egregiously flawed and don't deserve to see the light of day - or the acquiesence of our erstwhile President!

And just as an afterthought, God is truly great and good, Vice President Biden. It's the only explanation for how one with your limited intellectual abilities was able to rise to such a lofty office!

UPDATE: Over at Contentions, Jennifer Rubin has an excellent take on the matter!

Jennifer Rubin had a good one over at Contentions yesterday.


The money quote: Obama will contend that if it fails now, no other president will attempt it, aides said.
