Biden Piles On

This is good politics:

Appearing on ABC’s “The View,” Vice President Joseph Biden said it was “reprehensible” for members of the audience at the most recent Republican presidential debate to boo a soldier simply because he was openly gay.

“I did have a visceral response to it,” Biden said. “I’m not sure if it’s because my son spent a year in Iraq. And I know my sons and all the kids with them — kids, they’re grown men — I don’t think they give a damn whether the guy firing a rifle to protect them is gay or straight. I don’t think they care about that. Look this kid risked his life. This kid is there for them. And I, quite frankly, I thought it was reprehensible.”

Shining a light on the Republican snakepit.
