Biden Gaffe

By now, most everyone has heard the latest Bidenism--that he'd tell people not to fly or ride the subway because of the risk of swine flu.

The Robert Gibbs response was priceless--- "I think the vice president misrepresented what the vice president wanted to say," Gibbs went on to explain that what Joey MEANT was to stay off trains/planes IF YOU HAVE THE FLU. Which is not even remotely what he said. Even Jake Tapper called him on it.

Frankly, I wonder why Gibbs didn't just say, "What the vice president MEANT to say was--I love pink ponies! And unicorns! yeah, pink ponies and unicorns--that's it."

I guess the larger question is why is Joe Biden regard any differently than a crazy old uncle who's never been right since being kicked in the head by a mule? "Biden gaffe" gets over 400K hits on google. Remember, he's already on record praising his boss for being "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy" presumably in contrast to those gangstas on BET.

And conservatives are the backward and racists ones. Riiiiiiight.

Best comment of all so far: "They told me that if I voted for McCain we'd have a Vice President who was a moron... and they were right!"
