I can hardly imagine a more misguided kindness than comparing Joe Biden to James Joyce. The author of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake was coherent, just sophisticated. Biden may have been sophisticated once, but incoherence has become the better part of his charm.
Rating the Democrats is not a bad idea. Maybe we should all get past the chattiness, though, and offer a comparison of policies up and down the board. We might have more to discuss than Joe Biden and Molly Bloom.
