(Newser) – Americans don't seem all that concerned about Joe Biden's "big fucking deal" comment. In a poll by Fox News, 57% of respondents said his remark about health care reform was "not offensive," vs. 37% who thought it was. Fox News "went bonkers" over the comment, Greg Sargent of Plum Line observes, then commissioned a poll to "see if their flood-the-zone coverage" made an impact. The answer: "No so much."
