Former Vice President Joe Biden made one of his famous gaffes during his soapbox speech at the Iowa State Fair. Natasha Korecki of Politico captured it and shared it on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.

“We (Democrats) choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts,” he said to wild applause.

Oh Joe, God love him. Lines like this will make the general election should he be nominated highly entertaining, and some conservatives would note reveal truth about some Democratic positions as they choose feelings over facts.

Watch:

The Des Moines Register, who hosts the soap box does not at the time of this writing have his full-speech up on YouTube, but once they do I’ll include it below.
