.@VP calls the bombers "two twisted, perverted, cowardly knock-off `jihadis"—

Mr. Eloquence strikes again.
This afternoon at a memorial service for slain MIT officer Sean Collier, killed allegedly by the Tsarnaev brothers last week, Joe Biden flexed his trademark sensitivity muscles:
“Knock-off jihadis,” huh? Not the real thing?
And why is that? Is it because of their “relatively modest killing power,” as Geraldo Rivera tastelessly put it?
Try telling that to the families of the Boston bombers’ victims. To them, there’s nothing knock-off about cold-blooded killers.
Inquiring minds want to know.
Shameful, Mr. Vice President. But, sadly, not unexpected.
By the way, the 1993 World Trade Center bombers “only” killed six people (plus one unborn baby). Were they “knock-off jihadis,” too?
