Ode to Joe, part deux

I have not posted anything in a long, long time, but I was reading a great piece by Marc Thiessen of AEI this morning and it reminded me of something I wrote almost seven years ago about world-class moron, Joe Biden. As all (eight) of you will remember, I mentioned a number of things that Uncle Joe had said which turned out to be spectacularly wrong.
I missed one.
The following is what Thiessen wrote verbatim: "When President George W. Bush came to office, he revitalized missile defense efforts and withdrew from the ABM Treaty. Democrats were more upset than the Russians. Sen. Joseph Biden declared "The thing we remain the least vulnerable to is an ICBM attack from another nation" adding "This premise that one day Kim Jong Il or someone will wake up one morning and say, 'Aha, San Francisco' is specious.""
I think there is a business here. Pick a few of Uncle Joe's ramblings from the past and, assuming you can find someone to take the wager, bet on the diametrically opposite thing to occur.
And this guy might run for President in 2020. And the press will love him and never bring any of this up. What a country.
Talk to y'all again in seven years!
