Vice President Joe Biden took another detour on a trip down memory lane today. Our Vice President in charge of Foreign Relations is promising the Poles, Lithuanians and Latvians protection from the Russian Bear.

"Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland's admission into NATO," says his Vice Presidentialness.

Say it wasn't so, Joe, 'cause it wasn't. He was not  chairman then. Senator Jesse Helms, Republican, was. Not yours, Joe.

Helms, in one of the truly stupid foreign policy moves of the Republican Party, led the senate into admitting Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic into NATO.

Can I hear a volunteer to fight the Russian army in Hungary?
