In the midst of financial crisis frenzy, I missed this awesome story. Joe Biden said on TV that
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
Of course, the market crashed in 1929, and FDR took office in January of 1933 and there wasn't any such thing as television then.
Maybe Joe can start claiming that he invented television.
