Joe Biden cops to being a progressive.

Admittedly, it’s in the context of explaining why progressives need to take a bite of this surprisingly tasty, solid B+ health care rationing sandwich*, but actual semantic content is actual semantic content:

“I share the frustration of other progressives that the Senate bill does not include a public option.”

Especially when it’s sitting out there, all alone like that.  But you saw it here first: Joe Biden’s a progressive.  I wonder whether this means that moving forward the Vice President’s going to more forcefully oppose FISA, rendition, keeping Gitmo open, DADT, opposition to same-sex marriage, Iraq, Afghanistan, and so on**.  I mean, the thought that he would be – merciful Heaven forbid! – lying to progressives would be awful***…
