Have things gotten so bad in this administration that Joe Biden has to unwind gaffes?  Janet Napolitano and Hillary Clinton announced that the US no longer would use “war on terror” to describe the fight against al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and other affiliated terrorist groups.  Napolitano went so far as to eschew “terrorism” altogether in favor of “man-caused disasters”.  CNN tried getting VP Biden to explain this, and while not accusing CNN of making it up, clearly he couldn’t believe anyone would be this stupid:

I guess Joe’s not on board with the “man caused disasters” nomenclature.  Let’s see if we can find a euphemism for terror that Joe can swallow:

  • Grievance eruptions
  • Unplanned emergency-procedure exercises
  • Sympathy opportunities
  • Social Security reduction efforts

Any others?
