There goes Joe being Joe again.

Speaking to the National Urban League in Cincinnati, Ohio, Vice President Biden looked to his future retirement and said he wishes he had a Republican son--to help pay for his old folks home.

“I should have had one Republican kid who’d grow up to make money,” he said. “You know, so when they put me in a home, I get a window with a view.”

Biden, who recently kicked off a blog of musings titled “Being Biden,” referenced his daughter, a social worker, but not his two sons, one the Delaware Attorney General and other who is a well-paid lawyer.
