An Insignificant Hour and a Half of Joe Biden Braying Like a Biblical Donkey
I really do personally like Joe Biden, but he came across as a braying Biblical donkey tonight on stage in Kentucky. It was made worse by a moderator who lost repeated control of the debate. Up front, I have to say I’m hung up on one big thing. Joe Biden said the intelligence community got it wrong in Libya, but he says we can trust | Read More »
This evening, the debate we’ve all been waiting for will finally begin. Not traditionally a debate most Americans focus on, the lone Vice Presidential debate has become more of a focus this year due to the President’s poor performance in the only debate thus far. The Vice Presidential candidates have been relatively secluded the last week, both working overtime to study for tonight’s debate. Vice | Read More »
Vice Presidents don’t matter even if they aren’t Jack Kennedy
Joe Biden is no Jack Kennedy or Neil Kinnock, but he is from a slave state that Obama should carry Nothing to see here unless Vice President Biden turns plugs into real hair, water into wine and food stamps into well-paying jobs; and Obama promises to resign the presidency after failing to stop the oceans from rising. Does anyone think that Gore secured victory for | Read More »
The Real Joe Biden: The Wrongest Man To Ever Utter Wrong Things
The Obama campaign keeps claiming that Mitt Romney did not really show up last Wednesday. Apparently it was ManBearPig, which is why Al Gore decided to raise his voice with the altitude conspiracy. I wonder if the real Joe Biden will show up tonight. Biden, who considers himself an expert on all things foreign policy, famously admitted to opposing Obama going after Osama. He’s like | Read More »
HuffPost’s Fineman Promotes Biden’s ‘Genetic Political Talent’ and ‘Street Smarts’
Howard Fineman, the former Newsweek reporter turned editorial director for The Huffington Post, is excited for the upcoming Vice Presidential debate this Thursday. You could tell from his column published on October 8, which glorified Joe as the archetypal debater. It’s titled “Obama Needs the Merciless Joe.” To start things off, Fineman threw in a thinly veiled racial remark concerning Biden’s thirst for a political fight saying “what | Read More »
Welcome to the new Media paradigm, Mister Gibbs.
It’s one where you get interrupted when you try to spin the stupid things that your candidates say. For those without video, it shows: George Stephanopoulos (!) playing a clip of Joe Biden’s infamous ‘buried’ gaffe*; asking Robert Gibbs whether gaffes like this will hurt the Vice President in his upcoming debate with Paul Ryan**; and stopping Gibbs cold when Gibbs tried to claim that | Read More »
Joe Biden touts the fiscally progressive ideals of his Delaware homeland.
While I understand that it’s absolutely fascinating to watch Joe Biden campaign on the unique message Let’s have a trillion dollar tax hike! BIDEN: “On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more. My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? | Read More »
BullBiden! a.k.a Romney’s Hope-a-Dope
The Rope-a-Dope. The joke is so easy, it almost writes itself. This week, though, we’ve got to put the emphasis on the word dope. It works on two levels: Dope, the insult directed at the fantastically dunderheaded, and the cannabis derivative that has become the official inhalant of Occupy Wall Street. I think I want to go on record and say that neatly-rolled joints and rape are the only | Read More »
Book: Mafia Hit-Man & Teamster Boss Helped Joe Biden Become U.S. Senator
The book I Heard You Paint Houses came out in 2003, so it’s been gathering some dust on a number of bookshelves around the country for quite some time. The book’s title, according to Amazon, comes from the first words infamous Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran. To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the | Read More »
The Beginning of the End
Today marks the beginning of the end of Campaign 2012. This week, here in Tampa, Republicans will go through a well scripted event designed to make Mitt Romney their nominee. Democrats will reciprocate next week in Charlotte, NC.The GOP’s convention almost became unscripted with a heavy handed move designed to ensure a coronation and shut out the grassroots from nomination fights. According to press reports, | Read More »
Not the Behavior of a Winning Campaign
The media keeps showing its rear end. Let me just make that clear. If you are a competent reporter, I’m not sure how you cannot be embarrassed by the majority of those in your profession right now covering politics. From Mark Halperin, to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media is when it comes to Barack | Read More »

A Tale of Two Parties: Akin vs. Biden
Todd Akin says something really stupid and the Republican nominee, party chair, and hierarchy immediately call for him to withdraw from the campaign for Senate. Joe Biden says something incendiary and the Democratic president, party chair, and party hierarchy immediately accuse voters of being so stupid that they didn’t hear what he actually said. Todd Akin looks the camera in the eye and apologizes for | Read More »
Hey Girl, It’s Joe Biden.
A new site is up, Hey Girl It’s Joe Biden Here is one of my favorites: Joe is truly a gift for which we should all be thankful. The more we can make Obama-Biden the object of ridicule the better our chances of tilting this race into a relative landslide. I think 53-47 with 320 electoral votes is do-able.
Boston Globe slams Joe Biden for gaffes, and liberals for hypocrisy. (That was not a typo.)
Because I never thought that I would see a major Democratic newspaper lecture a Democratic Vice President like this – and lecture liberals for letting said Vice President get away with murdering his own rhetoric for so long: Liberals routinely dismiss Biden’s gaffes as the rhetorical excesses of an overly exuberant speaker — it’s “Joe being Joe.” And there can be something appealing about a | Read More »
