We all know that Joe Biden is a huge gaffe monster, but who knew that his wife Jill is too? This is laugh-out-loud hilarious, especially for what it implies about Hillary Clinton:
Joe Biden's wife said Monday that he had his pick of being Barack Obama's running mate or the secretary of state nomination that eventually went to Hillary Rodham Clinton, a slip that the vice president-elect immediately tried to shush.
Jill Biden's comment came during an appearance with her husband on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," taped at Washington's Kennedy Center on the eve of the inauguration.
"Joe had the choice to be secretary of state or vice president," she said. Her husband turned to his wife with his finger to his lips and a "Shhhh!" that sent the audience into laughter. "OK, he did," Jill Biden said in her defense.
Sheesh, that is so like something Joe would do you have to wonder whether eHarmony set them up.
Anyway, can you imagine the trepidation with which Joe and Jill Biden are looking forward to their next encounter with the Clintons?
People are literally dancing on the cold pavement in DC tonight...HBO concerts...bands and joy--and this is all you come up with? How about some joy on the right for this nation? How about the right joins the party. Just once. Crack a cold one and say Yes WE Did. LOL
You want the Right to join the party. Did the Left "join the party" to celebrate Bush's elections? I don't think so. We have elected a socialist. I pray he makes the right choices for our country, but I'm not holding my breath. I don't see a whole lot to be joyful about. This cult of personality surrounding Obama is disturbing.
Because I am completely insane, in a little over an hour me and TH Daughter are going to get on the Acela in Princeton and go to Washington for the day. She may dance; I will not. But I expect to have some fun. Security conditions preclude bringing my laptop, though, so today may be thin for blogging.
"This cult of personality surrounding Obama is disturbing."
I know some European experts, and they were drawing serious comparisons between 'Obama-mania' the cults of personality and authoritarian propaganda of the past. From the slogans, to the music, to the parade of semi-importants lavishing praise, to the art, to the absurdly dramatic language. And the chanting.
It's fucking creepy.
Give Jill a break, guys, she's had to put up Ol' Motor Mouth for how many years? Maybe some rubbed off on her. Besides, she's absolutely gorgeous...and those legs...geez. Give her a break guys, she's blond...
