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:
At memorial service for slain officer Sean Collier, VP Biden calls bombing suspects “two cowardly, twisted, perverted knock-off jihadis."—

Biden: "They can never occupy us..Whether it’s al Qaeda central.. or two twisted perverted cowardly knock off `jihadis’ here in Boston."—

“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.
"knock-off jihadis"? Tell that to the people they knocked off.—

Biden Calls Boston Marathon Bombers “Two Twisted Perverted Cowardly Knock-Off Jihadis”… Correction Joe: They are Muslim Jihadists..period!—

Inquiring minds want to know.
Just to be clear: When Biden calls the bombers "knock-off jihadis," he's saying killing a child, 2 women, & a cop isn't jihadi enough.—

Shameful, Mr. Vice President. But, sadly, not unexpected.
According to Biden the Boston bombers are "knock-off Jihadis'' Well maybe Joe is a knock-off VP.—

By the way, the 1993 World Trade Center bombers “only” killed six people (plus one unborn baby). Were they “knock-off jihadis,” too?
