Sheriff Joe: The Whole Flotilla Thing Isn't A Big F'ing Deal

You can quibble with his take on how much aid Israel lets in but for the most part, Joey B seems to get this one right.

"I think Israel has an absolute right to deal with its security interest. I put all this back on two things: one, Hamas, and, two, Israel's need to be more generous relative to the Palestinian people who are in trouble in Gaza," Biden said, according to a transcript of the interview, in which he went on to discuss Hamas's control of Gaza:

"[The Israelis have] said, 'Here you go. You're in the Mediterranean. This ship -- if you divert slightly north you can unload it and we'll get the stuff into Gaza.' So what's the big deal here? What's the big deal of insisting it go straight to Gaza? Well, it's legitimate for Israel to say, 'I don't know what's on that ship. These guys are dropping eight -- 3,000 rockets on my people,'" Biden said.

How bad is the Obama administration? Joe Biden seems to be the smart one.

Now this statement might be a big deal if it reflects a change in the administration's position. Yesterday Hillary Clinton and the US Ambassador at the UN struck a much more neutral line. At the White House, Gibbs said the UN statement reflected the President's take on the situation.

Of course, this could be Crazy Uncle Joe going off on his own. We'll see.
