Joe Biden's angling for youth vote, 'No Malarkey!' bus tour turns weird

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

“I sit on the stand and it gets hot.” Then things turn weird. And strangely personal. “I got hairy legs that turned — that, that, that — turned blond in the sun,” he stutters. “And the kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again and look at it.” Got it? See, this is how Mr. Biden energizes the youth vote. Really rock the vote out there. From there, Mr. Biden — perhaps mercifully — went entirely incomprehensible. “So I learned about roaches and I learned about kids jumping on my lap and I loved kids jumping on my lap.” Dear Lord, deliver us. All of that is a painfully exact quote. Someone, it appears, has woven Mr. Biden’s hair plugs a little too tight.
