Vice President Joe Biden is on the hunt again for “my old friend” Sarah Palin, his 2008 vice presidential foil.

In a new fundraising letter to supporters, Biden is blasting Palin for fundraising, presumably via her recent demand that the GOP impeach President Obama.

“The other side sure is making a lot of noise lately. They're up in arms about Obamacare, John Boehner is trying to sue the president of the United States, and my old friend Sarah Palin is back in the news,” said Biden.

“You and I both know that there's one thing they're not worried about: Fundraising. Right-wing special interest groups are planning to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to influence close races throughout the country, trying to keep Democrats from realizing change in Congress. We're not talking about the usual thing, either — we're talking about more money than I've ever seen in politics,” he added.

Then came his pitch: “We've got to make some noise of our own. We can beat them, but it's going to take everything we've got. Chip in $10 or whatever you can today to support Democrats in this fight. Let's get this done, Joe.”
