By ROBERT LAURIE - Like EF Hutton, when Biden speaks, people listen - because something weird usually happens.

Joe Biden has taken to Twitter and, like EF Hutton, when Biden speaks, people listen - because something weird usually happens.  This time was no exception. The plan was for "Plugs" to send out a picture spotlighting his all-time-top-five-desert-island-favorite planks in the Democrat party platform. He did so by uploading the following image:

There are five main bullet points: Tax Cuts, Investment, Medicare, More Tax Cuts, and Gay Marriage.  That's one for each finger, probably so the Vice President could remember them all. So far, so good.

Unfortunately, the creepy six-fingered hands caressing the American flag indicate that either there are either too many fingers, or too few planks. Immediately, the image started spreading around the net, as had word that the Veep had bestowed another "Great Moment in Biden History" upon an undeserving public.

Perhaps the art department screwed up, or maybe, just maybe, the sixth finger was secretly reserved for God and Jerusalem.

Either way, when Biden takes to the podium tonight, I'm going to be counting fingers
