The best part of being part of a group is choosing whom not to let into your group. Let’s face it, would being a member of the Skull & Bones be as mysterious if any old Joe could join it. Or would being part of the KKK be so great if us Jews could join? Definitely not. After ten minutes of being nagged by a Jewish woman I think the Klan would entirely disseminate.
I think this thinking is what made Harry Reid & the new Congress disallow VP-elect Joe Biden from Senate Democratic Caucus meetings. According to the article, “The new Congress will reassert its constitutional independence from the White House by barring the vice president from joining in internal Senate deliberations”.
So, this is Good News for:
1. Joe Biden, because now he not only has a valid excuse to not attend these boring meetings, he’s not allowed to.
2. The other Democratic Caucus members, because now they do not have to listen to Joe Biden’s insufferable ramblings which would have extended each meeting by at least 90 minutes.
3. Dick Cheney, because he can now always look down at Biden knowing that he was allowed in the caucus meetings and Biden wasn’t.
