Biden Loves Him the Trial Lawyers

Wall Street Journal’s “Best of the Web,” picked this up yesterday...

Lawyers in Love
The unstoppable Joe Biden appeared last night at a fund-raiser hosted by the American Association of Justice, a group you probably have heard of under its former name, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. The group changed its name in 2006 because everyone hates trial lawyers and they have not yet managed to sully the name of justice.

Actually, not everyone hates trial lawyers. Biden loves 'em, as ABC's Jake Tapper reports:

"He has never, never, never, never, never, never, never shared the values set that you share," Biden said. "He's an honorable, decent man, but John McCain truly believes, truly believes that you are corporate America's problem," he said to the trial lawyers. "And thank God you are."

Biden said that he's "done more than any other senator combined" for trial lawyers.

"There are two people--you've heard me say it before--two groups that stand between us and the barbarians at the gate," Biden said. "It's you and organized labor. That's it. That is it. So, mark my words, mark my words, if we lose this election, you are going to continue to see a continuation of the onslaught on everything we care about. For real. For real. So, I'm not only thanking you for your help. I would think you're all absolutely brain-dead if you didn't help. And I mean it."
