Biden: let us now praise "bottom-feeders"

We'd get called intemperate if we used that kind of language:

But Delaware Democrat Sen. Joe Biden said trial lawyers and the suits they file were a defense against corporate misdeeds.

"I'll pay the bottom-feeders to go out and get these big fees to stop bad guys from doing bad things," he said.
