“Vice President Joe Biden said that the Democrats up for election aren’t running on their accomplishments because they’re too hard to explain.

“You know that anti-gay candidate Carl Paladino running for governor? He had this horrible anti-gay thing the other day. It turns out he owns two buildings that house gay night clubs. So I guess when it comes to making money, Mr. Anti-Gay’s attitude is ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell.'” – Jay Leno
