In light of April 1st, what better way to celebrate such a joyous holiday than to pay homage to one of the best jokes in modern day politics? Vice President Joe Biden might have Rick Perry beat when it comes to the most ridiculous and embarrassing blunders of the 21st century.
When giving a speech at the Scott Community College in Davenport, Iowa, Mr. Charming referred to the president of the school as a sugary drink instead of saying her actual name. Biden’s slip-up went a little something like this:
Due to the fact that Joe Biden is not equipped with a built-in teleprompter, the former Delaware senator keeps making mistake after mistake. In the beginning of the new year, Biden boasted that the Giants were making their way to the coveted Super Bowl. Such a statement is not controversial unless it is announced in front of a group of unruly 49ers fans. Oh wait. It was. Mr. Biden apparently got his Giants mixed up, confusing the New York Giants with the SF Giants (a baseball team, mind you)
Go back two years and not only did Biden drop the F-bomb during a ceremony for the healthcare bill, but a week earlier the vice president offered his condolences to the Irish prime minister on his deceased mother. Little did Biden know that the Irish prime minister’s mum is still chugging along and has yet to reach an untimely end.
Though speechwriters alike would rather have Joe Biden pushed into a corner with masking tape over his mouth until further instructed, the vice president will always remain a loose cannon.
Here is your political portion:
Just the way we like Biden: Nice and Quiet.
