On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark joined Tucker to consider Joe Biden's latest adventures on the campaign trail as reported by The Washington Post:
In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.
Steyn took a more generous view:
Carlson turned to Steyn, who maintained that the fictitious story was, in fact, Biden at his best. "To be fair, Tucker, this is the old Biden back," he said. "The recent Biden of this campaign, the stumbling, bumbling, mumbling guy who can't remember the name of Barack Obama, that's an embarrassment. He stumbles, he trips on three-syllable words like 'Democrat.'"
"But this is classic Biden," Steyn went on. "This is Biden at top form, where he does this vivid, coherent, brilliant narrative, in which not a single detail is correct."

This dude who dresses like a Bond villain who buys his wardrobe at Target.
