In this 1988 clip he tells the story of how his IQ surpasses that of a questioner:
He pulled out very shortly after it was learned that he had plagiarized work and was not in the top half of his Syracuse University law school class, but was in fact 76th out of 85. Maybe the good Doctor of Jurisprudence Joseph Biden had simply forgotten, as he sometimes is prone to do.
Now, let us consider one of his more recent statements.
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed," Biden told Couric. "He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
As Reason's Jesse Walker footnotes it: "And if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, 'Who is that guy? What happened to President Hoover?'"
A mind is a terrible thing, when it has wasted away in the midst of lies and deceits. I am sure he had to take an American history class or two as part of an accredited pre-law curriculum, in order to qualify for a spot in SU's law school. But I am sure he has just forgotten, like he did his class ranking.
You see, a pathological liar can always be identified fairly easily. They often forget their own lies or tell them so many times, they actually start to believe them.
Do we really need a pathological liar a heartbeat away from the Presidency?
