Having failed at history when pronouncing that FDR eased Great Depression fears by going on television...which was a huge gaffe because he forgot to mention the FACT that he borrowed Doc Brown's flux capacitor from Marty in 1955...because he didn't die in 1945, he went back to the future.
In 1955 he stole a TV, went back to the 30's, installed a ramp on it and then proceeded to wheel himself up and give speeches easing people's economic fears ON TELEVISION....but I digress...
So Biden failed at history, no matter how plausible the scenario I present to help him out might be. So now he goes where no professional comedian dares to go...rape jokes.
The vice president, known for speaking his mind and at times putting his foot in his mouth, said that Republicans who want to cut spending while at the same time cutting taxes for the wealthy are similar to rape apologists...
It's amazing how these Republicans, the right wing of this party – whose philosophy threw us into this God-awful hole we're in, gave us the tremendous deficit we've inherited – that they're now using, now attempting to use, the very economic condition they have created to blame the victim – whether it's organized labor or ordinary middle-class working men and women. It's bizarre. It's bizarre."

Wait, he wasn't joking? Um.......ok?
First of all, if Biden truly "spoke his mind" as much as the media would like us to think he does, he would actually be a mute.
Second, conservatives philosophical view of tax cuts for anyone, including the rich, thus "forcing" the government to run deficits (in their view, not mine) is now tantamount to encouraging rape?
Laslty, if we want to humor Biden and follow this logic...who's doing the one doing raping here? If the unions and taxpayers are the victims, and the GOP is excusing it, neither can be the perp.
The only logical conclusion would be the ones in this equation not mentioned by Biden, the Democrats.
In light of this revelation I'm finding myself willing, for the first time ever, to compromise with a liberal by agreeing with Biden that the Democratic Party rapes taxpayers assets off. Also, the GOP should stop blaming them for voting liberal and come up with better pickup lines so they don't get seduced by the "hope" President Roofie drops into their drink.
In the end this is really just another example of media bias, because Biden can't actually "put his foot in his mouth" unless he says something ridiculously stupid.Add a comment
Ross Douthat, the conservative guy at the New York Times has a column about how the Libya airstrikes is textbook liberal warfare (here), chocked full of advantages and disadvantages.
It was really informative because I always thought liberals fought wars with armies of lawyers and liberal judges. It turns out they also like to wait until the U.N. signs their permission slip to lob tomahawk missiles from behind the skirts of the French (AKA in France as applying for citizenship).
Nobody disputes that Gadaffi is a bad bad guy, and what he's doing is as Obama put it, unacceptable. However, people are uneasy about this because it seems less like an effort to oust Gadaffi and more like Obama is just trying to answer the age old question of what a dog would do if it finally caught the car it was chasing.
That's Obama vs. Gadaffi in a nutshell. Unlike Iraq and Afghanistan (conflicts that were actually relevant to American interests), the mission objectives were clear as mud. People understand even less why our military is getting involved in Libya, or what the goal line even looks like.
What's worse is Obama is treating this like it was the fight over ObamaCare all over again. He seemingly had moments to make a decision, and he took his time to the tune of days and weeks on this.
If he wants to flex American muscle when time is truly of the essence he should pretend that he's choosing ice cream flavors that have just been removed from the freezer and wont go back in until he picks one...
Like the fate of the free world depends on it. Then again I'm just playing armchair general. Unlike the previous two years I'm sure Obama knows exactly what he's doing here.Add a comment
I think this has been around for a while, but it was just sent to me from a family member via email...----------
The Dept of Defense briefed the President Obama this morning.
They informed him that 2 Brazilians were just killed in Afghanistan.
To everyone's surprise, he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.
Finally, he composed himself just long enough to ask,
This is not surprising, since he obviously has no understanding of billion or trillion either.Add a comment
Political humor is really hard when your audience is mixed, this guy Ross Bennett (check out his YouTube channel here) brilliantly went there without actually "going there."

It's probably a bad sign when you're starting to be called "President Present" and it doesn't mean that your being president is a present to the country...
Obama advisers are spinning their excuses for the president's absence (he needs to stay above the fray, he believes in international agreement). Conservatives, for their part, are beginning to argue the "incompetence" line. A combination of all is probably at work, along with an even greater impulse: political safety. Mr. Obama got a taste of falling approval ratings last year. The White House has worked hard to get those numbers back up and wants to keep them there until Mr. Obama has a GOP opponent and can go into campaign mode—where he's at his best.

Why does this guy even want to be president?
Other than a record of indecision what can he possibly run on? ObamaCare? The "stimulus?" The only concrete decisions he has made to date came when he had congressional majorities that were lost because of those decisions.
How about that for change?
So now the strategy is to do NOTHING until it's campaign time? Why? So he can tell voters to vote for him over the other guy if they want more of:
Hmm...now that I've listed it out, you really do get a lot more than it seems. At first I thought Obama was like a bag of potato chips, with more air than chips. Now I see that he's more like a Taco Bell burrito, it doesn't look like you're getting much until they wrap it up and you bite in to it and get a surprise overloaded mouthful of bottom-scraped refried beans.
That's the Obama Administration in a tortilla shell...
I hope his campaign staff has a dictionary on hand when his GOP opponent mentions words like deficit, and terrorism, and leadership.
That's REALLY important, because when the campaigns sit down to hammer out the terms of the debates I really don't think the theme of any of them will involve NCAA brackets.Add a comment
St. Patrick's Day is the perfect time to tell some liberal limericks!
The lefties think that they're progressive
A name change thats really obessive
Liberalism ain't right
Socialism shines a light
That the devil would find more impressive
Joe Biden has said "see you later"
To anything resembling good behavior
It's a big effing deal
That he outsmarts a wheel
But he's not smarter than a 5th grader
Pelosi used to be the House Speaker
With eyes that bug out like tweeker
Her sense of disgrace
Is as loose as her face
When her botox is watered down weaker
Anthony Weiner's a name one should pity
But he's perfect to rep New York City
He's speaks so wrongly so loudly
And he does so quite proudly
'Cuz his namesake is so itty bitty
Chuck Schumer is a big freakin' dork
No wonder he hails from New York
He's full of lib thoughts
'Cuz his parents never got
His brain delivered from the stork
Nevadans can gamble and be merry
But their Dem senator is pretty scary
He's kind of Clint Eastwood
In one sense 'cuz he should
Actually be called "Turdy Harry"
The U.S. runs trillions in deficit
Then Dems wanna know "where's the rest of it?"
They don't get that we're broke
'Cuz they're morons and jokes
Thinking money's like milk from a mother's tit
MSNBC is like a sad person single
The public just doesn't wanna mingle
There's much better choices
Than watching men act like boys with
The president causing them tingles
So I focused on the rest of the gang this time.Add a comment
