It's time now to start this thread.

1. Biden joked that Palin was a better looking candidate than he is.

2. Biden agreed that Hillary would have made a good VP choice.


And this isn't a gaffe, but it sure looks like Biden has had an eye lift. Anyone else notice?

Oh no, he didn't just say that. That's what he said first. He went on to say...

"...and frankly, she would have probably been a BETTER choice than me."

Can you IMAGINE being Barack or Michelle sitting there watching THAT. Shocked

Now wait a minute, stupka. About this thread. Before we get going... we better check with Reb to see if we have the bandwidth to handle something like this. Very Happy

How is that a gaffe??? That seems incredibly harmless (and possibly smart self-deprecation). ?

There's better stuff than this ... I read something particularly unpleasant in the Times today, but I'm not going to do your work for you.

Prolly got the surgeons name fron Nancy Pelosi...

Can't remember which news outlet it was ...but they were asking what exactly he was doing to help this ticket??? I really like Joe Biden, and I sort of felt bad for him when I heard that....his was after his comments about Hillary being a better choice than he for VP.

With his history of gaffes...this could turn into a long thread... Wink

Bush raised the bar when it comes to speaking gaffes - but it looks like Biden is off to a good start.

Probably during the Democratic primary. Or when Biden said his wife was "drop dead gorgeous." So now it's sexist to say someone is more attractive than you? The word "attractive?" He didn't say she was "sexier," or "had a better body..." I can't deal with this "everything is sexist" crap.

All these gaffes do is show people that Biden is not that different from them. He says things that seem less than ideal sometimes because he's actually speaking without a script -- like a real person. His constituents in Delaware seem to have been fine with it for dozens of years. And unlike Bush, he doesn't come off like a freakin' idiot (because he's not).

Actually, Biden didn't just say his wife was "drop dead gorgeous" -- which is a wonderfully sweet thing to say about one's wife . But oh no, Biden had to insert his foot in his mouth by what followed after that... "My wife Jill, who youll meet soon, she also has her doctorate degree, which is a problem.

So tell me Joe, why is that a problem? Confused

Was it this?

Quote:
Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr.s son, Hunter, who had been a Washington lobbyist, has quit the industry in an apparent effort to insulate his father and his presidential running mate, Senator Barack Obama, from the political fallout of his lobbying connections.



Or this

Quote:
Democrat vice presidential nominee Joe Biden gives significantly less money to charity as a percentage of his household income than the average American


Or his gaffe from earlier this week

Quote:
In Columbia, Mo., this week, Mr. Biden urged a paraplegic state official to stand up to be recognized. Chuck, stand up, let the people see you, Mr. Biden shouted to State Senator Chuck Graham, before realizing, to his horror, that Mr. Graham uses a wheelchair.

Oh, God love ya, Mr. Biden said. What am I talking about?

Pay no attention. Just because Repugs say "nucular" doesn't mean we have to fall in line! Laughing

Oh wait, let's make a sexist remark!!! Sarah Palin is prettier than Joe Biden. There? Is that sexist enough for you people?? No? Well, Sarah Palin is fulfilling a bunch of 'naughty librarian' fantasies for tons of people. Hope that's sexist enough? Cause God knows, this is what's important.


I'm glad to know this is your "issue" Rolling Eyes

I can pronounce "nuclear" the way it's supposed to be pronounced.

She's working against type pretty well. But she could drip a little of that warm the Alaskan night sexiness and I bet McCain would get a rise in the latest poll.
