'I Guarantee You We’re Going to Have a Majority in the House and a Majority in the Senate. I Absolutely Believe That'

The nice lady will show you to your padded room now, Mr. Biden.

Consider this Gaffemaster Joe's kiss of death for Democrats come the midterms in 40 days. In a bout of sheer delusion, he actually thinks the Tea Party will help Democrats.
Vice President Biden said Thursday the conservative Tea Party movement might be "the best thing to happen" to Democrats with the midterm elections approaching.

Biden, speaking at a fundraiser in Chevy Chase, Md., for Sen. Barbara Mikulski, said that the energy of the Tea Party might inspire a lethargic Democratic base to turn out and vote in November.

“May be the best thing to happen to us lately is the Tea Party wins," Biden said. "Maybe it’ll shake some of our constituency out of their lethargy.”

The vice president also offered a "guarantee" that Democrats will defy predictions and maintain control of the House.

“I guarantee you we’re going to have a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate. I absolutely believe that,” Biden said.
