Veep Biden's Solution for Mexican Flu? "Don't fly" ...Hide In Your Basement

Not to be outdone by Prezident Barack Erkel's latest bonehead move of flying a 747 with F16's flanking it over the 9-11 site and around NYC without thinking anyone might freak out... Vice President Joe Biden now says he would advise his family to avoid all places where they are in close contact with others to deal with the Mexican Flu outbreak.

"I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now."
- VP Joe Biden

Biden says to quit flying... (which should stimulate the struggling airline industry), avoid subways, trains and cabs and according to this logic... elevators and office buildings, schools etc. In other words, stay home and hide in your basement... unless you don't have a basement, then just stay home. And don't wear one of those surgical masks. According to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano those masks are "too intimidating" for US border agents to wear, so forget about that.

If this were President Bush, the media would blame him solely for the the flu outbreak, for no vaccine and for no plan to deal with it except ... "don't fly" and hide in your basement.

When it comes to public health, I'm would rather err on the side of the prevention rather than the cure, so maybe Ol' Joe's got a point for a change. (Hey, every dog's gotta have his day sometime, right?) Just as Homeland Security's job is not to protect the hurt feelings of Mexico, our first responsibility is to protect lives, not profits. If the airlines could survive 9/11, they'll survive this too.

(I can't believe I'm actually taking up for Joe! These are scary times.)

Look... this is an ordinary flu, in fact it appears that it is less than ordinary. Telling people to stop flying, stop mass transit, stop going to school and work before thing even hits here is absurd and reckless.
Joe Biden is an idiot, perhaps the biggest idiot to ever sit in the executive branch.

All this flu crap is leading us to nationalized health care... hide and watch.
