Biden calls Bush comments ‘bulls**t’

God love Joe Biden. He won’t be VP, but he might get a Cab­i­net posi­tion. He should be reward­ed for keep­ing it real. Also of note: CNN san­i­tized “bull­shit” in most of the arti­cle, but chose not to when pre­sent­ed in quotes as Biden’s words. Back­bones grow­ing every­where.
