Biden's Red Hot Smokin' Wife ...

During his speech on Saturday, Joe Biden's reference to his wife Jill as "drop-dead georgous" (not bad for a guy with hair plugs) immediately reminded me of Will Farrell's line in Talladega Nights, in which he references his, "red hot smokin' wife Carley, who is a stone cold fox."  (Was I the only one who immediately thought of that reference???  Most likely, yes ...)

In any event, Joe Biden might not be the only U.S. Senator who feels this way about Jill.  Today's NYT has a profile of Mrs. Biden today, which includes this interesting paragraph:
In a biography of Mr. McCain, “The Nightingale’s Song,” the author Robert Timberg writes that Mr. McCain, then a Senate aide, was a fun guy and “much in demand for overseas escort duty,” adding: “In an Athens taverna, he danced on a table with Senator Joseph Biden’s wife, Jill, a red bandana clenched in his teeth.”
