Land O'Goshen - A Blooper?
Well, I don't know. The answer isn't wrong - and it isn't exactly like you want to open the can of worms with Couric that you disagree with Title IX, right? Best save the specific cases you disagree with for when you're not being grilled, but can explain exactly why. As a general answer, this was fine. There are cases that have extended federal control beyond its legitimate bounds, and it all merits further examination; but as she knows, a VP isn't going to be in the position to do anything about it any more than a governor or mayor is. Biden, on the other hand, decided to use the question to self-aggrandize and lie - surprise! You wrote it, Biden? Is that so? That big huge turd of a discriminatory law to the tune of 5 billion dollars per year? I wouldn't brag about it. But then again, you didn't write it anyway, did you? Biden Babble and The Dancing Fool The ugly history of the VAWA for your pleasure. I know it's long, but it routs out the stunning level of feminist demagoguery and censorship that's gone on for far too long at the legislative level. Biden knew which side his bread was buttered on and chivalrously championed (not wrote) one of the worst pieces of legislation on the books, and now brags about it under the pretext of answering the question of where he disagrees with the SCOTUS. He might not be quite as dumb as I thought. Hat tip to Siobhana, but next time you take it, eh? I'm a bit weary of such ravings.
