Biden to Gabby Giffords: “Welcome to the Cracked Head Club”

Via Breitbart TV. Since we’re grooving on insane left-wing double standards today, here’s the second thing this guy has said in the past 24 hours that would have become a national media scandal had his party affiliation been different. And before one of our three lefty readers wonders — no, this isn’t a Fox scoop. Other reporters heard Biden say it, including one from the Boston Globe. Which raises the question, what’s the dumbest part of this? That he’d joke about a cracked skull with Gabby Giffords, who may very well prove to be permanently disabled from having “joined the club”? Or that he found it amusing enough to share the anecdote with reporters later on? Free advice for conservatives and independents: Do not attempt this “joke.” Not only is it tone-deaf and callous, but you won’t get graded on the curve afterward. (“Oh, that Joe!”)
Giffords herself, you’ll be glad to know, is coming along well enough that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz thinks she can make it back to Congress. But reports early this morning that she’s planning to run for reelection turned out to be wrong. They’re hopeful that she’s well enough, but it’s still wait-and-see.
