Where are the guardians of civility today?

Remember all those media and White House critics of the tea partier's foul mouthed and bad tempered protests? They're suddenly silent. For some reason, they hold the vice president to a lower standard than a retired steel worker holding a hand made sign on a street corner.

It's a good day for Vice President Biden, but the veteran Democrat is the latest public figure to get caught cussing on the open mike.

After introducing President Obama today to a group of whooping Democratic lawmakers at the health care bill signing, Biden could be heard telling his boss, "This is a big f------- deal!"

. . . Obama administration officials didn't seem too concerned about Biden's latest entry.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs tweeted, "And yes, Mr. Vice President, you're right."

This is the same Robert Gibbs who found "you lie!" offensive.
