It's such a comfort to know Joe is on the job for a catastrophe like this. Also, hand it to the White House briefing room, they post everything. I saw Biden's comments on Ida from earlier today. Amazing, after all he said about the dangers and the preparations for the storm, some jackass still wanted to change the subject to Afghanistan.
