Joe Biden in Lima

Wow I got a good place to stand. if Joe starts his Gallagher routine I'm totally going to get splattered.

-- Update --

The speech was absolutely awesome! He literally blew the roof off the place. And I got to shake his lovely wife's hand and the hand of the next Vice President of the United State of America.


  1. So... How went the splatterage?

  2. Wow.

    I don't know what to say to this.

  3. Yeah I'm pretty sure he has some mouth crusties from talking 300 hours a day and he's just wiping off his mouth.

    But if you think he was flipping off John McCain and you dont want to vote for him for that, I suggest building a time machine.

  4. Right, obviously this was just a test run and Obama wasn't really giving a speech. He was clearly goofing off. Silly Obama.

    I don't want to vote for him because his policies are borderline socialist. This is just icing on the cake for me.

    But hey, I guess you've been overlooking stuff like this his entire campaign. Following the Clinton template, I guess you would say, it depends on what he meant by the middle finger. Maybe it means "Congratulations" in Hawaii.

    Wheeee! Spin the planet!!!

  5. I can't stop staring at that picture. It's freaky. I like it. hehe

  6. Yay let's make fun of people and their culture's woo.

    Let's call him things that everyone else is calling him this week.

    I wonder what else people can come up with to call him if this election kept going. I tell you it's been a blast to get called these things too. My favorites have been baby killer, communist, anti-american and lots of other fun things.

    At the end of this whole thing, the one thing everyone will have to call him is President of the United States of America.

  7. Who is making fun of someone's culture? You lost me. Are you trying to drive me insane again? Damn you, exaggerated emotions man!

    Until next time!

  8. The middle-finger Hawaiian comment was what I was referring to.

  9. Eh, wasn't he born in Hawaii? I was joking about passing off the middle finger by claiming it meant something else, and how silly that would be. Wow. Sorry if you think that was a racial slur or something, hehe..

    Maybe you should pull an Obama and banish me from your website. Isn't that what they usually do to people that disagree with them? Or no, maybe you should investigate whether I owe back taxes.

    If he gets elected, I can't wait to see how he handles the low polls that Biden is forecasting. Maybe he'll give the whole country the silent treatment... Ooo, or maybe you'll get caught under a gas truck, that's the best one...

  10. “We’re going to face a major international challenge. Because they’re going to want to test him, just like they did young John Kennedy. They’re going to want to test him. And they’re going to find out this guy’s got steel in his spine,” Biden said.

    And let's talk about who's saying the President will be tested.

  11. I know some Hawaiians who wouldnt think it was funny that you think their dialect would contain the middle finger as a sign of saying congratulations.

    And no you dont get banished. You're free to say whatever you feel on here as you've always been. But I do think it's funny how it seems to bother you when Obama does things that President Bush has done and McCain/Palin have done as well - speaking to the point of ignoring or "banishing" press people.

  12. Sweet mother of God Cory when did you get so sensitive? My comment has nothing to do with Hawaii. I was making a joke of what silly excuse would Obama use to justify flipping the bird.

    I think it's funny that the fact that someone else has done something that you agree is wrong suddenly makes it ok that Obama does it. Obama says the constitution reflects fundamental flaws, and I've seen people justify this statement by saying Bush walked all over the constitution. So suppose he did, why the hell does that excuse Obama for making that statement? I don't get that mindset at all.

    And as far as the Biden statements, you have to take the whole statement not just the 15 second sound byte where Biden praises Obama saying he has steel in his spine. I think maybe you've been watching too much NBC. ; )

    He said there would be a GENERATED crisis. Meaning something specifically directed at us because we put an inexperienced man in the white house (i.e. to test the mettle - courage, temperament of this guy). But what is significant is the fact that he follows it up with what amounts to a massive disclaimer, excusing pretty much anything under the guise of "if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound." We're about to elect what appears to be a wildly popular president. Sooooo, why doesn't this principle apply? I think it absolutely applies. But I guess this principle of suspending reason in the interest of loyalty to your leader only applies to Obama's 'good decisions', which apparently will make him tank in the polls. Right. Something tells me if these were Palin's words you would have had a different perspective.

  13. Now damnit in the words of the Dr. Phil soundboard, stop hating me and love me again! I want you to start living your life as a lesbian woman!

  14. Am I super sensitive or am I something else? hehe

    Joel, the Constitution contains passages (later amended) that allowed for the concept of slavery and that slaves were 3/5ths of a person. I'm fairly certain that's what he meant.

    And I'm willing to defer to a man that taught Constitutional Law as opposed to, well George Bush.

    Then again we could go ahead with Gov. Palin's ideas on the Constitution if you're fine with that.

  15. In cases like this, I like plea the 3rd!

  16. I am guess that in regards to Palin you are talking about how she describes she the Vice President does to a third grader. Wow. Don't you think that's a little out of context there spunky? The VP presides over the Senate. The only part she was wrong about was the 'get in there and make policy changes' part, which a VP doesn't make policy changes unless there is a tie vote. That's a little silly to compare to someone saying the constitution "reflected a fundamental flaw in our country that continues to this day' isn't it?

    So it continues to this day. You know anyone that owns slaves? He's damn close to becoming the first black president of the United States and he's talking about racial inequality?! You're trying to tell me that the opportunities afford to the average African American in this country are severe enough to be considered a fundamental flaw?

    I realize that I can't understand what it is like to be an African American or to be discriminated against. But to say we still have a fundamental flaw in the form of racial inequality in this country seems crazy to me.

  17. She wasnt talking to a 3rd grader, she was relaying what she had told a 3rd grader to a reporter during an (rare)interview.

    The US Constitution lists only 2 duties for the job she's running for and it's really no more than a few sentences. I would prefer her to be an expert on that since she's running for that office.

    Anywho enough of that, here's the Newsflash - Joel and I dont agree on political stuff. :)

  18. Damn you surprise ruining bastard!

    Have a good day Cory. : D

  19. You to buddy!

    Love ya man!

  20. Joel.
    You are the blackest person I know.

    Noone bit on my 3rd amendment joke?
