Joe Biden's deep (but mythical) blue-collar roots

Steve Chapman, August 31, 2008, Chicogo Tribune

Joe Biden once got in trouble for plagiarizing a speech and inflating his academic record. So it will not surprise you to find that his famous working-class background turns out to be mythical. But it may surprise you to learn that Biden isn't the one who has trouble with the facts. (link)

Comment: It seems Joe Biden is not the man of the people with working-class roots after all. His family was solid middle class. His father was an excutive, a co-owner of a business and a manager.
