Oh Joe Biden, you never fail to entertain me with your ridiculous commentary. From your drunken song and dance “The Villages” to your invitation to wheelchair-bound Chuck Graham to stand up and let the crowd see him, you seem to suffer from perpetual foot-in-mouth disease. Seriously Joe, I can’t believe you actually said, “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”
Those gaffes are all old news by now, but Joe hasn’t left us hanging. He’s got a fresh slew of off the cuff remarks guaranteed to make you roll your eyes.
"They’re going to put y’all back in chains."
This gem was said to a largely black crowd in Danville, Virgina, while talking about Republicans and big banks. “Romney wants to let ... the big banks write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street! They’re going to put y'all back in chains.”
Except that it was the Republican Party that freed the slaves and the Democrats that insisted upon Jim Crow laws. As for the whole ‘protecting big banks’ thing -- well that’s a Democratic prerogative as well. The Senate Democrats killed a bill last month that would have called for “greater scrutiny of the U.S. central bank's powers.”
"Folks, where's it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?"
"They sound like squealing pigs."
This one happened in Minnesota and was said in reference to Republicans. Really, Mr. Vice President? You’re going to call Republicans squealing pigs after all the crap that’s come out of your mouth? Maybe you are demented.
