revisiting biden’s debate jab

Last night I rewatched part of the Palin-Biden debate on OnDemand (words cannot describe how much I love OnDemand!!!). I watched it for this part:

BIDEN: Now, with regard to the — to the health care plan, you know, it’s with one hand you giveth, the other you take it. You know how Barack Obama — excuse me, do you know how John McCain pays for his $5,000 tax credit you’re going to get, a family will get?

He taxes as income every one of you out there, every one of you listening who has a health care plan through your employer. That’s how he raises $3.6 trillion, on your — taxing your health care benefit to give you a $5,000 plan, which his Web site points out will go straight to the insurance company.

And then you’re going to have to replace a $12,000 — that’s the average cost of the plan you get through your employer — it costs $12,000. You’re going to have to pay — replace a $12,000 plan, because 20 million of you are going to be dropped. Twenty million of you will be dropped.

So you’re going to have to place — replace a $12,000 plan with a $5,000 check you just give to the insurance company. I call that the ultimate Bridge to Nowhere.

And then he looks over at her and smiles. Good grief!! A collective BOOYAH! swept through the nation. Leading up to the debate there were reports of Biden’s people were telling him to go easy on Palin or risk looking condescending and arrogant. If I was an OBiden advisor, I would’ve said shoot ’em all and let god sort ’em out.
