Beau Biden: Too Good for Delaware
But Biden said his time in the federal system prepared him to lead the office, if he's elected.
"Prosecuting a case in front of a federal jury is like playing in the major leagues," Biden said, adding that prosecuting here was, "like playing Triple-A ball."
Baseball analogies are something I can deal with.
Why would any major leaguer voluntarily go back to Triple-A? They wouldn't. They are sent to AAA because they can't handle it in the major leagues. Now that's fine in baseball, where a player works their way up through the system and finds the level they can succeed at, but Beau is on his way down after apparently heading straight to the show. Before we let him be the presumed star of our Triple-A team, why not try him in Double-A for a while? After all, he apparently had trouble with the Majors since he wasn't there long and is on his way down. Let's make sure he can handle Double-A before letting run the team in Triple-A.
The other thing that's frustrating about this comment is the sheer arrogance of it. He really seems to think he's better than this job. I've already voted, but this comment would have turned me off his candidacy if I hadn't already been. Mr. Biden, if you think you are too good for Delaware, then do those of us who love our state a favor:Leave. Go where you think you belong.
UPDATE (11:04 AM): This came off harsher than I meant it to be. A combination of lack of sleep and running off to do something else combined to be a little harder than I would otherwise have been. I apologize for that.
But, it's still clear the Biden the Lesser believes that this job is beneath him. Continuing the baseball analogy, major leaguers in the minor leagues on minor league rehab assignments are well-known for not focusing on the game at hand, not running out ground balls, not playing hard, etc. Can we risk that in our chief law enforcement officer? Or should we choose someone who's glad to be in the game and will play hard? The choice is obvious: we must elect Ferris Wharton as our next Attorney General.
