I think the leg hair thing is even weirder than the lap jump thing, the latter of which can at least be attributed to just a poor choice of words or whatever. The leg hair thing is just downright bizarre why he'd want to choose that as an anecdote.
I asked myself the same thing about John McCain in 2008.
It is pretty much old people. They both speak their lingo ("straight talk"), they both appeal to the generally pro-military older people (McCain through his Vietnam history, Biden through Bo), and both are bland as hell in their presentation.
Not really--several users here have specifically stated they don't think Biden is actually a pedophile.
The issue is really more about this shaggy dog story (no pun intended) he decided to tell. If a kid started messing with my leg hair in a pool or wherever, I'd tell them to cut it out and run along or something. I couldn't imagine bringing such a pointless event up later, much less in a public setting while in office. I guess he was going for some sort of "I get along with kids" thing, but he should've reflected on how odd the story sounded. And the lap jumping bit punctuates the whole anecdote.
Trump would completly destroy Biden in the debates. I can just imagine Trump calling him 1% Joe over and over again and bringing up Hunter and Ukraine, while Biden is dumb founded fumbling his words talking about Corn Pop, record players, touching kids and Obama Obama.
I can't believe this is the guy the Dems want debating Trump in front of millions of American's on live TV. Its going to be like that Simpsons episode where Mayor Quimby debated Sideshow Bob. Its going to be a massacre. I really hope Biden wins because it will be probably the most entertaining thing in years.
