Damage Control Joe

This is about as good as damage control gets: Vice President Biden visits Poland, lays a wreath in memory of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, says "An attack on one is an attack on all," and promises SM-3's by 2018 -- all without a single gaff.

Meanwhile, some Polish parliamentarians are still upset that Turkey will receive more than 50 batteries of U.S. Patriot missiles, while Poland is only slated for one.

The Poles are also upset that the Turks attacked Vienna in 1529.

So that’s strike two, Turkey!

"Damage Control Joe" is a better brand. =)

Snake oil salesman. Why are they still peddling patriot missles? Are they expecting a V-2 attack from the Germans. Or a Scud attack from Iraq?
