Joe Vinegar Biden or The Gaffe Machine

This is a post I did in January 2007 originally titled "The Gift". I thought I'd repost it because it's still very relevent today. Go Joe, you got us laughing already

"Smiling" Joe Biden (d) Delaware

The political Gods have smiled down on the American people and have handed them a gift that will keep on giving. Today, Senator Joseph Biden the democrat party US Senator from Delaware has indicated to Americans that he will now honor us by becoming a candidate for President. The first words out of his mouth on the campaign trail are typical Joseph Biden. Joseph Biden indicated everyone else in the race was completely wrong about US policy in Iraq but gave no details on how he would do things differently. The democrat party Senator also added some typical condescending and racially charged comments about Senator Barack Obama with a remark that the Senator from Illinois running for President was the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy”. Just a few short months ago Senator Joseph Biden had to "clarify" to the press, remarks he had made about recent immigrants from India being owners of 7-11 stores.

Having Joseph Biden in the campaign will keep reporters plenty busy with his statements and “off the cuff” remarks. Joseph Biden has already stuck his foot into his mouth but this is only beginning because this is an ongoing affliction for him and it will prove to be endless entertainment for the rest of us. Mr. Biden treats all others that do not agree with him in his typical condescending way and will bring plenty of attention to himself and his intellectually devoid and dishonest political party during the upcoming Presidential campaign season. Run Joe run! The gift that keeps on giving.

Fame is a fickle food

Fame is a fickle food
Upon a shifting plate
Whose table once a
Guest but not
The second time is set.

Whose crumbs the crows inspect
And with ironic caw
Flap past it to the Farmer's Corn--
Men eat of it and die.

Emily Dickinson

Thanks for reposting this timely post!

The music on your blog is beautiful! Is it the sound of you playing the piano?

In case you did not know, Biden is the smartest man in the world. Just ask him. The two together amount to Arrogant and More Arrogant.

If Obama chooses Biden for his VP, he will be sorry should he get elected. Biden is too strong a personality for Obama. It would not be long before Biden, tired of playing second fiddle to Obama, decides to take over.

BTW, I like your music.

I will not ever forget his campaign for the White House in 88 when he was caught, not once but twice, plagiarizing politicians from other countries.

Thanks for stopping by Ortho. I wish I could play the piano like the music you hear. It is a piece by a man named John Pickett called Golden Memory. If you run your mouse over the words"Now Playing" under my profile a balloon window will magically appear with the name of the artist and piece.

Hi Susie, I've had some direct run ins with Her Biden in my position as a community activist ;-) and he comes off even more arrogant in person. It took me a while to find this post in the archives but I think it says how most people perceive Joe Biden then and now.

Shop, I remember those occasions when he was caught plagiarizing the famous British politician and he tried to deny it at first. Biden has been an obstacle to the freedoms guaranteed under the second amendment for many years. He was once the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and proposed or accepted any legislation that would take or severely limit those second amendment rights. Biden doesn't believe average citizens should possess firearms of any kind.

Biden is getting to be a cranky old man. Still, of all the characters Obama is considering for VP he's the most experienced.

But who cares if he helps to win Delaware's 3 electoral votes. Big deal!

Maybe we'll find out who the great one chooses in the AM.

Take it from me Mike, Delaware isn't voting for Obama even if they decided to put Eleuthère Irénée du Pont on the ballot with the "One". Biden will make the campaign something to watch if he's selected by the "One". I want to see who is the first group he insults or what famous person he plagiarizes.

The RNC has started a Biden Gaffe Clock to see how long it is between Biden screw ups.

I don't think they need to have a 24 hour clock. They could probably use an egg timer.
