Vice President Joe Biden recently spoke at the White House National Conference on Mental Health. Pause for uncontrollable laughter.
Everything is fully explained now.
Biden relayed the very serious story of undergoing two brain surgeries for cranial aneurysms in 1988.
He said, though, that he was given less than a 50 percent chance of “being completely normal” and that his “ability to speak” might be affected.
There you have it, folks.
CNS News provided the transcript of Biden’s comments:
Doc, what are my chances?’ I had two great neurosurgeons. And I’ll never forget–I will not mention his name, but he’s one of the leading neurosurgeons in the world–he said: ‘Senator, for mortality or morbidity?’
And I’m thinking, No, swear to God, I mean, you know, jeez. Well, I said, ‘Let me put it to you this way.’ It was a long road to the operating room. I said–this is absolutely a true story–I said: ‘What are my chances of getting off this table and being completely normal?’ He said: ‘Well, your chances of living are a lot better.’
And I said, ‘OK. What are they?’ He said, ‘Well, they’re in the 35 to 50 percent range.’ And I thought, well–seriously, I was a born optimist–I said, well, hell, that means 35 out of 100, 50 out of 100 make it. I might as well be the one.
I said: ‘What’s the most likely thing that will happen if I live?’ He said, ‘Well, the side of the brain that the first aneurysm is on controls your ability to speak.’ And I thought: ‘Why in the hell didn’t they tell me this before the ’88 campaign?’ It could have saved us all a lot of trouble, you know what I mean?’
