Obama’s Court Jester
Vice President Joe Biden seems to be quite the chameleon stand-up comedian. Well, for me anyway.
Generally I think of old Joe as Cousin Eddie from the "Vacation" movies. Somehow, that seems to get me through the days of realizing the man is a heartbeat away from sitting and spinning in the leather-backed chair behind the Oval Office desk. THEN Joe would take on the persona of Jack Nicholson as the POTUS in "Mars Attacks".
Not quite sharp or honest enough to be a George Carlin. Not quite witty enough to be a Robin Williams. Although Joe's been very close to the whiney and complaining delivery much like a Roseanne Barr. Joe lacks the patient finesse of a Bill Cosby or a Red Skelton. Sometimes I think Joe believes he's channeling Lenny Bruce. While not exactly Flip Wilson, Joe Biden's been known to flip.
And while they say imitation is the best form of flattery, Joe's never shied away from stealing someone else's material. And now that sneaky fool on the Hill is trying to steal someone else's material again.
Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule Aug. 31. Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’” [...]
Funny but I don't think Joe Biden was joking here.
