It’s true - GOPers love Uncle Joe. So much so that during an interview, Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu quipped that it’s too bad cloning is illegal. What can we say? Biden just has a way with words.  Via CNSNews.com:

“Actually, I have to tell you, we have a deal with the CIA and they put [Vice] President Biden into our most difficult states because it helps us,” Sununu joked during a conference call on Wednesday.

Sununu, taking a slightly more serious tone, said that Biden’s penchant for rhetorical excess helped the Republican cause before again joking that he wished Biden could be cloned.

“Look, Joe Biden is a nice man but he has always had these problems. He always runs off faster than he thinks,” Sununu said.

It serves the Republican agenda to have him in as many places as possible but I still think there’s a federal law against cloning, so we’re going to have to settle for one Biden at a time,” he said.

RNC Chair Reince Priebus couldn’t agree more. When Biden was slated to appear in Tampa for a rally during the RNC, Priebus said he’d lay out the welcome mats. “Joe Biden is our best surrogate for the Republican party around this country,” Priebus said on Hannity. “So the more he talks, the better off we are.”

Let’s hope he goes off script tonight.
