And it just feels so manipulative!
There’s something really creepy about a grown man whispering into a microphone. And when a politician does it, you immediately suspect he’s trying to hide something.
… At the commencement address for U.S. Naval Academy graduates, Biden spent 25 minutes rambling almost incoherently at times. Then he told a story about applying to the Naval Academy in 1965 — the same year he graduated from the University of Delaware.
And what is with the incoherent rambling?
“I was told the Class of ’72 is here. I was appointed to the academy in 1965 by a senator who I was running against in 1972 — never planned it that way. I wasn’t old enough to be sworn in. I was only 29 years old when I was running,” Biden told the graduating class of midshipmen. Biden continued his babbling, “He was a fine man. His name is J. Caleb Boggs. I didn’t come to the academy because I wanted to be a football star. And you had a guy named [Roger] Staubach and [Joe] Bellino here. So I went to Bellino and Staubach are the only two Navy football players to win the Heisman Trophy as the best college football players in America. Bellino won the award in 1960, while Staubach did so in 1963″, he added.
