Now It Can Be Told

Michael Totten blows the lid off the Biden Gaffe-O-Matic. During the debate, Biden said,

“When we kicked — along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, “Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t know — if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.” Now what’s happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately to the north of Israel.”

To which Totten replies,

What on Earth is he talking about? The United States and France may have kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon in an alternate universe, but nothing even remotely like that ever happened in this one.

That's it! Totten has stumbled onto the fact that Joe Biden is from another universe.

President FDR going on TV during the '29 crash? In this timeline, no; in Joe's universe, yes!

In Biden's universe, Chuck Graham can walk.

In Biden's universe, the Constitution is slightly different.

In Biden's universe, Neil Kinnock plagiarized him.

And so forth.

Whether he is an unfortunate inadvertant traveler (see Miriam Allen deFord's "Slips Take Over") or the agent of a hostile entity (see Charlie Jade) is as yet unknown. (Frankly, since 9/11 I think we've all wandered into Murray Leinster's "Sideways in Time", and haven't realized it.)

Here is a list of situations that obtain in Biden's home universe. Maybe we should start a massive research effort to see that he gets home OK.
