Actually, Biden says he’s a teetotaler. But an unnamed Dem told Politico Uncle Joe is “intoxicated by the idea” of a 2016 presidential run.

This would explain so much. So. Much.

Just how “intoxicated” is he? Politico reports, “Obama aides at times had to actively steer Biden to places where he was needed — like Pennsylvania — because he kept asking to be deployed to Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states.”

Not news: Biden is easily distracted and stumbles through the day like he’s completely faced. Kinda sorta news: He’s high on presidential aspirations.

When Biden giggled inappropriately during the October VP debate with a creeptastic smile plastered on his face, many viewers, including Fox News’ Sean Hannity, joked that he was hitting the bottle. Media Matters and other Dem shills freaked out on Fox for booze jokes about a guy who doesn’t drink because of his family’s history of alcoholism.

We’re sure the Soros monkeys will go after Politico any minute now. Any. Minute.
