Discussion: Biden Super PAC To Pull Ad Featuring His Reflections On 1972 Car Crash

Discussion for article #241613

Damage control for a truly awful idea.


Hey Joe, remember how awful this felt? Now sacrifice the rest of your life and soul by running for president again, OK?

Any bonehead would know that this was a horrible idea for an ad. Of course, these are just any boneheads–they’re super(PAC) boneheads.


Thank you.

Yeah, when I saw the ad I was simultaneously moved to tears, as I always am by Biden’s story, and disgusted at the transparently manipulative exploitation of that story. (And incidentally, it probably eroded some of the sympathy and goodwill Biden’s been enjoying, so it wasn’t even politically smart.) I hoped Joe would make clear that he disapproved; glad he did.
