Where would the world be without good old Uncle Joe. We haven’t had a Vice President provide us with this much comedy since Dan Quayle. Whilst in the middle of fund-raising for fellow Democrat contenders Glenn Nye, Gerry Connolly and Tom Perrielo Biden stepped in it again saying:
“These guys are smart, “Biden asserted. “Some of the guys Chuck [Robb] and I have campaigned for are turkeys. Not all Democrats are created equal, while most Republicans are.”
During the same speech Biden also called the men “independent minded” and “damn confident”. Heh, with enemies like Biden, who needs friends? I’m sure his fellow Democrats are anxious to hear exactly which ones he thought were turkeys and “not created equal.”
Hey, I have an idea, I’m the president and I have a tough bill that is coming up for a vote very soon. Many people in my own party don’t really want to vote for it, but I’m going to try and strong-arm them into it any way, even though their constituents will probably be pissed and they will have a tough re-election bid next year. I know, let’s send Joe Biden out and call them turkeys and see if that will seal the deal. Yeah, great idea!
While the L.A. Times refers to Biden as “refreshingly candid” in the same article, I think they meant “refreshingly idiotic.” Has anyone wondered where Biden has been for the last month or so? Apparently the administration sent him out of the country because the guy is a gaffe a minute. But . . . he’s baaaack.
Keep them coming Uncle Joe, you’re a guffaw a minute. All I can say is that considering we’re in the middle of the Great Recession, Iran and Israel are about to blow each other up, it’s good to have a Vice President who can at least supply some laughter, if not sound policy or common sense. I can’t help wonder why Dan Quayle will forever live in infamy as the guy who couldn’t spell potato but Joe Biden says some of the most inane, moronic junk you’ll ever hear and the media just titters in laughter at good ‘ole Joe Biden, there he goes again.
