forced to drop out of the Democratic presidential primary race because he plagiarized a speech by British politician Neil Kinnock. Why would Biden do this? Perhaps because his own ideas aren't very good. Last weekend Biden made headlines by saying that the US should shut down the terrorist prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba:
A large proportion of those imprisoned at Guantanamo have, in fact, been let go. So how is Biden's proposal any different from what has already occurred at the camp? Well, it is different in that it lends credence to absurdly overblown claims about the abuse of inanimate objects.
I'll keep this episode in mind the next time someone tells me that term limits are bad because experienced politicians are forced to leave office. (Biden has been a member of the Senate for a third of a century.)
