Sadly – Joe Biden is in good company when opening his mouth and inserting foot. Many presidents, vice presidents, and all the “wanna-be” and the “real deal” politicians have had major foot in mouth disease. But – Joe has his own unique style of messing up…here’s a few that made me smile!
- “Stand up, Chuck, let ’em see ya.” –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008
- “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.” –Joe Biden, speaking at a town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, Sept. 10, 2008
- “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…. I’m not joking.” –Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006
- “Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.” –Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008 (too bad that Joe can’t count the number of letters in a word…maybe we’re saving that job for another politician – like an educated president?!)

I remember so many politicans through the years who have offered up embarrassing “oops” on and off microphone. Four letter words probably don’t qualify as three-letter words, Joe. Ah heck, there are a ton of words out there . . . we’ll just not worry about that malarky! However, you made me laugh! If the folks in Washington DC could figure out how many letters are in the word, perhaps, just perhaps, we could get some growth and employment! Or, is it too late? Are people voted in as a result of the “Marvelous Plan” for “No Child Left Behind?”

THEFT doesn’t just happen to be left to the “little people.” And don’t you forget it for one second; we’re the “little people!” To add to Poor Joe’s misery, his van was ripped off bunches of electrical equipment in Detroit, Michigan. Secret Service agents are hot on the trail of the culprit(s). Perhaps all the equipment will appear on Cold Case issue #403, and it will be found nestled in a junk yard dealer’s yard. Or. . . maybe the van and equipment is pulled apart completely south of the border and being resold as I write this epistle.
Pardon me for snickering.
