A Noun, a Verb, and 9/11

Text settings

Best* line of the Democratic debate? It's not even close. Joe Biden on Rudy Giuliani:

"He only uses three words in a sentence: A noun, a verb, and 9/11."

*By "Best" I mean, of course, "Only".

UPDATE: At The Corner K-Lo crys foul!

Maybe the 10 P.M. hour has killed what little sense of humor I've ever had, but that 9/11 sentence line was a low, crass line. And it's disturbing it got laughs. I'll believe they were nervous laughs.

No, not nervous laughs. It's funny because it's true.
