12. Oh, he smiles. Don't think he doesn't.

Every two-bit conservative-owned Iowa TV news station bends over backwards and kisses their own ass to cover him. Chief among their "news" reports of this traitorous bastard are those depicting him, amid small-town patriotic fanfare, grinning as he kisses the ass of some disgruntled veteran who is finally receiving his medals after half a century or more. He's a PIG, and Iowa's media is fond of slathering him with lipstick.

8. they've been calling this the "biden rule", twisting biden's words from a rather different context:

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2016/mar/17/context-biden-rule-supreme-court-nominations/

We wanted to use our In Context feature to lay out what Biden said back then outside of McConnell’s sound bite. Readers can determine if it’s relevant now.

Biden's floor speech was on June 25, 1992, more than three months later in the election cycle than it is now.

There was no Supreme Court vacancy to fill.

There was no nominee to consider.

The Senate never took a vote to adopt a rule to delay consideration of a nominee until after the election.

Nonetheless, Biden took to the floor in a speech addressing the Senate president to urge delay if a vacancy did appear. But he didn't argue for a delay until the next president began his term, as McConnell is doing. He said the nomination process should be put off until after the election, which was on Nov. 3, 1992.

13. he weasel worded

A bullshit move, but it was wolf blitzer, so he knew he would get away with it.
