Tourette's sufferer Joe Biden was at an event for wounded soldiers last night when he cracked a joke at the expense of his party's controversy-plagued Senate nominee in Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal. "I didn't serve in Vietnam. I don't want to make a Blumenthal mistake here," he said, unhelpfully. "Our attorney general from Connecticut, God love him." Just because you say "God love him" afterward doesn't make it okay, Joe. [TPM DC]
