Joe Biden tells Hirsi Ali "one or two things about Islam" . . .

Ashe Schow reports that "Ayaan Hirsi Ali fights radical Islam's real war on women" (Washington Examiner, December 8, 2014), and almost gets into a 'fight' with Vice-President Joe Biden:
[Islam's] violence against women needs to be exposed, and Western liberals need to "review their thinking," she said.

That will prove difficult. In her speech to the dinner guests in Washington, Hirsi Ali recalled meeting Vice President Joe Biden. He informed her that "ISIS had nothing to do with Islam." When she disagreed with him, Biden actually responded: "Let me tell you one or two things about Islam."

"I politely left the conversation at that," Hirsi Ali said, to laughter.
Could Biden really be so sure of his knowledge as to attempt to lecture Hirsi Ali on the finer points of Islamic teaching?

I met her briefly in 2008, when the theatre where I work hosted a book awards program where she was honored--but all I knew in advance, which was much more than the awards audience, who were completely in the dark, was that there was some unannounced guest whose safety required several meetings with the security division of the local police. Backstage, she was quite nice.

Wow! You met her? She does seem like a nice person. I'm glad to hear that's not just public image.

I can't remember which politician said he decided against trying to impeach President Obama because he didn't want a President Biden. Uncle Joe has a history of sticking his foot in his mouth.

Yes, he does have that tendency.
