I really hope the rumors of Hillary replacing this guy on the ticket in 2012 aren’t true. The material he supplies us with daily is irreplaceable. Speaking to a group of democrats in Wisconsin, Joe Biden said, “You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to.” He was talking about the amount of manufacturing jobs that Wisconsin has lost and seemed surprised that the crowd wasn’t more upbeat.

Gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett made the mistake of having the Vice President campaign for him in Madison when he [Biden] made the remark. As Biden was talking about the fact that we need to reward people who manufacture things here in America the crowd didn’t respond in the fashion that he wanted. He then quipped, You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to. Do you realize how many jobs Wisconsin has lost?” Yes Joe, I’m guessing they have.

I wonder if Joe Biden realizes he’s one of the dumbest politicians we’ve ever had the misfortune of being governed by? He’s a walking gaffe just waiting to happen. What would ever make Barack Obama want to cut this guy loose for the 2012 run?

Here’s a question for the audience. Who is the dumber politician? Joe Biden, the man who says to an audience of potential donors, “You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to,” or the one who tapped said politician to be next in line to the Presidency?

It’s a toss up.
