Metal manufacturers pay the price for Joe Biden Opening His Mouth.
The annoying bit is that we can’t even put the Vice President in an undisclosed location, given that he’s already gone out and disclosed it. I would write that it’s days like this that make me miss Dick Cheney, except that doing so would imply that I’ve ever stopped doing so since 01/20/2009. Biden comments drive metal manufacturers lower NEW YORK (AP) — Shares of | Read More »
Biden in Ohio [Erm, Pennsylvania*]
To steal from Glenn Reynolds: You know, they told me that if I voted for John McCain we’d end up with an embarrassingly unpopular Vice President who’d stumble over the simplest of tasks… and they were right! Biden fails to draw crowd in Erie Wattsburg, Pa. — Vice President Joe Biden visited a small town on the outskirts of Erie today to talk to rural | Read More »
Recapping Bidens LGBT speech.
So… the guy who’s against gay marriage (unlike his predecessor) went to a LGBT fundraiser and told them that his boss (who is also against gay marriage) intends to get DoMA repealed (while at the same he’s still defending it, in terms that started a backlash) and wants to end DADT (while doing nothing to actually end it*); and in the process somehow manages to | Read More »
The Report that triggered the Weiderhold ‘retirement.’
[UPDATE] In honor of Troglopundit’s request for respect for the KISS principle, here goes: Fred Weiderhold quit rather than tell Congress he was under Biden’s thumb. If you don’t have time to read the report that apparently triggered the Weiderhold matter (said report is also available via Senator Grassley’s office, as part of his ongoing investigation) – or even Stacy McCain’s article – here’s a | Read More »
The latest on the latest IG situation.
It turns out that former Amtrak IG Fred Wiederhold quit right after Senator Grassley started asking some questions. As a senior member of the United States Senate and as the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Finance (Committee), it is my duty under the Constitution to ensure that Inspectors General, which were created by Congress, are permitted to operate without political pressure or interference | Read More »
Whom the Gods would destroy, they first send Joe Biden: David Paterson edition.
Vice President Joe Biden is the sort of person who must be taken everywhere twice: the second time, to apologize*. Gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden backtracked yesterday from comments he made at a Democratic fund-raiser in Manhattan that were widely viewed as an endorsement of Gov. Paterson’s re-election. [snip] Speaking of Paterson Monday night, the loose-lipped Biden said, “Your once and future governor of the | Read More »
Perhaps the White House doesn’t *want* Sotomayor confirmed.
Look who they’ve farmed the prep work off on: Cynthia Hogan, chief counsel to Vice President Biden, will lead the White House team, with assistance from several other Biden aides. Former Obama campaign adviser and transition spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter will handle message and communications, two administration officials tell CNN. The vice president, a veteran of Supreme Court nominations from his time on the Judiciary Committee, | Read More »
The Great “Joe Biden, International Gun-Runner” caption contest.
Yes, I know: as Lord of War kept pointing out, the top five arms dealers in the world all have permanent seats on the UN Security Council. And I don’t mind selling arms to the Lebanese government, assuming that they don’t end up firing them off at Israel and/or Turkey. I don’t even mind doing so as part of, as Andrew Malcolm rather sardonically notes, | Read More »
Swine Flu Biden. (Or: “Re: Biden Foot-in-Mouth Report”)
Brother Pejman expands on this report that Vice President Biden is telling people to avoid public transportation and yank their kids out of schools. Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy If President Obama wishes to handle this crisis by sending Vice President Biden to an undisclosed location until it’s over, well, sacrifices must be made.

Why we know that Biden’s confrontation of Bush story is false.
I read, of course, the story “Bush Aides Challenge Biden’s Boasts of Oval Office Slapdowns“: Aides to former President George W. Bush are challenging the veracity of Vice President Joe Biden’s claim this week of having privately castigated Bush, who does not remember the incident or an earlier episode in which Biden claims to have similarly rebuked Bush. Biden spokesman Jay Carney declined to specify | Read More »
So. Gates for SecDef, Clinton for SecState, Jones for NSA.
That’s pretty much the lineup. Do you know what this means? It means that Joe Biden is going to be the single most useless Vice President in the history of the Vice Presidency – which is impressive, considering the people that we’ve had populating that office. He’s going to go from being Senate Foreign Relations Chair to The Guy Waiting To See If Obama Keels | Read More »
Delaware Democrats unhappy that Senate seat apparently now hereditary.
After all, political dynasties are actually not uncommon in American political history: but ones named “Biden?” I mean, really. Biden? Biden replacement creates blowback By: Andy Barr November 25, 2008 10:13 AM EST Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner’s (D) decision to appoint Vice President-elect Joe Biden’s longtime aide Ted Kaufman to the Senate has upset local Democrats who believe the move was a ham-handed attempt | Read More »
Hey, what’s the difference between CBS-3 KYW (Philly) and WFTV (Orlando)?
KYW caved to the Obama campaign’s bullying after doing its tough interview of Biden: WFTV, of course, didn’t. Via Ace of Spades HQ. Moe Lane
The Inevitable SNL Biden/Murtha Skit Post.
That was what made me decide to front this SNL skit involving Murtha/Biden (via AoSHQ). It’s by no means a game-changer – more of a admission of the damage that these two have already done for their candidate – but it’s funny, which is enough for a lazy Sunday morning. Now let’s just see if it loads… UPDATE from Soren: Go help Bill Russell retire | Read More »
Joe Biden too scared to face THAT WOMAN again.
Fausta’s Blog reports that WFTV will be getting no more interviews from the Obama/Biden campaign. Which means, of course, that the Obama/Biden campaign just voluntarily degraded its access to central Floridan airwaves for the rest of the election. Ah, pride. A wonderful sin… in one’s opponents.
Yippie Kay Yay, Joey Biden.
There are times where “Joe Biden opens his mouth” is wholly inadequate as a tag. This is one of those times. Again, thanks for the help, Senator Biden. Moe Lane
Quote of the Day: Michael Ledeen on Joe Biden
“I have long said that Senator Biden is one of the dimmest bulbs in that great overdone chandelier known as the U.S. Senate, and his performance in this campaign has certainly added dimness to his luster.” Also via Instapundit
And *this* is why we all did our happy dance when McCain picked Palin.
Because this is what we wanted, and this is what we’re going to be getting from here on in. I guess that we know now why Biden took the day off – but not what the method is that the Obama campaign is using to keep this from happening again. I’m personally guessing electroshock, but that’s because I’m married to a mad scientist (well, mad | Read More »
Senator Biden: indecisive voters just fighting off their latent racism.
No, it’s not a direct quote. If it was a direct quote, it would have been five paragraphs long. OK, OK mean of me. He’s gotten much better; now it only takes Biden two paragraphs to get to the point.
