Joe Biden, Faux Pennsylvanian

I know the Obama people want Biden to help them win the parts of Pennsylvania he lost so badly to Hillary Clinton. But really, can the Obama campaign really sell a 65 year-old man as “that scrappy kid from Scranton” when Joe Biden moved out of Scranton, Pa., to suburban Delaware when he was 10 years old – in the year 1952? Are  Pennsylvanians really that stupid?
