Joe Biden: Where's The Fire? It's Wherever I Am, Baby

Via Drudge, I see that Joe "The Mouth" Biden has been at it again. This time he has been reassuring people -- in his own unique way -- that the stimulus dollars are being spent wisely:
Vice President Joe Biden brought a clear message to this tiny Eastern North Carolina town Wednesday: The federal recovery money isn't just for big banks and auto companies.

Biden and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced a new wave of $10.4 billion in federal stimulus money for home loans across the country, and billions more for essential services in rural communities such as Pikeville, which is getting money for a new fire station. Biden used the outdated, current station as a backdrop. Pikeville is just north of Goldsboro in Wayne County.

"We're investing in places like this all across the country," Biden said, "to demonstrate the vital role towns like this play in the recovery."

Most of the money for the station that was announced Wednesday, however, had been secured last year under the Bush administration, according to fire department officials.

If only somebody at the fire station had let him play with the siren. That would have made the story perfect.
