A young Joe Biden tells stories, and where is Alvarez Guedes when we really need him?

The late Alvarez Guedes died 10 years ago. He left us a lot of LP’s, cassettes, 8-tracks. reel-to-reel tapes, MP3 files, and lots more of comedy and jokes. I remember when my father died that he had a lot of his LP’s next to all of those chess books that he collected. As I remember, a new Alvarez Guedes LP was always a moment of absolute joy for our family growing up in Wisconsin.

So I had to think of the great Cuban comedian when I saw this story about a young Joe Biden and two well-dressed men kissing in the car. Does Biden think that we are a bunch of “comemierdas”?

The world is going crazy, especially our President Biden telling another one of those stories from his youth:   

In a preview of the White House interview released Monday morning, guest host Penn — who is engaged to his longtime boyfriend — asks President Biden how he came to be a vocal supporter of marriage equality.

“I can remember exactly when my epiphany was,” Biden responds in the clip. “I hadn’t thought much about it, to tell you the truth. I was a senior in high school and my dad was dropping me off… [I was] about to get out of the car and I look to my right, and two well-dressed men in suits kissed each other.”

The president continues: “I turned and looked at my dad, and he said, ‘Joey, it’s simple, they love each other.’ …It’s just that simple. It doesn’t matter whether it’s same-sex or a heterosexual couple, you should be able to be married. What is the problem?”

I don’t know if that really happened, but he never brought it up when he kept saying that marriage was between a man and a woman.  Remember that, Joe? It also reminds me of that Cuban word that applies perfectly to a man who tells these stories.

  1. Biden is not interested in us. We’re not part of his target audience. He’s aiming for the kind of people who saw fit to vote for him, who are either comemierdas or worse.
