      I mentioned the Senator from MBNA to my partner recently, and he had not heard that title before. So I did a quick search for some references to this and came across this article from Mother Jones:

      House of Cards: How Joe Biden helped build a financial system that’s great for Delaware banks and terrible for the rest of us.

      There’s probably not much here that isn’t already known to most JPRers, but this article is a good summary, especially if you need to introduce anyone to this history.  But I do have to say I did learn something new, from the final paragraph of the article: There’s a Joe Biden scented candle, and it smells like oranges! Unfortunately, the lack of hyphens makes it difficult to know whether this candle smells like Joe — who by implication also smells like oranges — or whether it’s just an orange-scented candle that’s been endorsed by Joe. At $22, it’s a lot cheaper than the Gwyneth Paltrow vagina candle; though, of course, some might say you get what you pay for.
