It's beecause, every now and then, he decides you and I are what's wrong with the country:

Biden: Democrats have lost faith in the American people

Sen. Joe Biden said in an interview at the New Hampshire Union Leader this afternoon that too many Democrats, including the frontrunners for the presidential nomination, do not have faith in the American people.

..."I think they've really lost faith in the American people in terms of leveling with them," he said of his leading rivals.

When he asks groups of Democrats if they think the American people are stupid because they elected George W. Bush twice, most respond that, yes, they do, he said. He said he thinks that attitude is a real problem for the Democrats, who fail to understand how smart and pragmatic the American people really are.

Biden was generally critical of the far left wing of his party and of the strategies the frontrunners are using to win the nomination.

Asked if he thinks, as he suggested recently in another interview, that the other candidates tend to think the American people are stupid or easily fooled, he said, "Well, I do."

"It's not even so much they don't trust, which is a piece of it," he said. It’s that they think that "the way to win is the Bill Clinton triangulation and the Karl Rove angering."...

And the difference between your scapegoating of justifiably exasperated Democrats and "Karl Rove angering" is what exactly, Joe?

And we can tell the difference between your anti-Democrat Democrat rhetoric and "triangulation" how exactly?


Though I do enjoy this:

If he gets the nomination, he would run on a 15 red-state strategy. He thinks he can win 15 red states -- such as Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri -- which would give him enough of a base of support in Congress to govern effectively.

Yeah, and I think next year this blog can win the Nobel Peace Prize.
