fns-biden.jpgJoe Biden was on "Fox News Sunday" yesterday talking sense about space war. He was asked about the Chinese satellite-killer test, and chose to inject a dose of sanity into the conversation by reminding viewers that the U.S. has a number of ways to respond to the test without escalating the situation.

As for that space policy and its implications, you heard about it here first! We wrote about it , then the WaPo picked it up three days later and it went wide over all the media.

Biden's remarks were a rational response to recent events. Score one point for the Senator from Delaware.
