The Gaffer has given me some of the best laughs of my life. He’s so clueless that his dumb remarks rank up there in humor with the great comedian Red Skelton. With so much to despair about these days; here’s a walk down Gaffer Memory Lane that hopefully gives you a few laughs:
The Gaffer forgot what state he was in:
In the same speech, in which he made his infamous “chains” remark, the Vice President was apparently clueless about which crucial swing state audience he was addressing as he urged the Danville, Virginia crowd that “With you, we can win North Carolina again!”
The Gaffer even forgot what century we’re in:
“Once again, General Motors are the largest automobile maker in the world. Folks, where’s it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles? I’ve not seen it written anywhere.”
Note to The Gaffer; She’s Not Dead Yet:
Joe Biden mistakenly told Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen that his mother had died, when in fact, she was still alive: “His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And – although, she’s — wait — your mom’s still – your mom’s still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.”
“Look, John McCain’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”
“I’m also told that, that Chuck Graham, state senator is here. Chuck? Stand up Chuck! Let ‘em see ya! Oh! God love ya. What am I talking about? I’ll tell you what, you’re making everybody else stand up, old pal. Thank you very, very much. I’ll tell you what, stand up for Chuck! Thank you, pal. You can tell I’m new. Good to see you buddy.” Chuck was sitting in a wheel chair!
The Gaffer has a 7-11 slurpy:
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent….I’m not joking.” Only The Gaffer could get away with this racial slur!
I hope everyone got a few laughs at Joe Biden’s expense. I don’t care how many times I read them they still make me laugh. But on a serious note, the double-standard is clear. Whenever GOP vice presidential candidates like Dan Quayle or Sarah Palin made the occasional misstep on the campaign trail the liberal media were there ready to pounce and claim that those mistakes were a sign of someone unfit to be Vice President. When the Vice President is a Democrat, like Joe Biden, they either ignore the gaffes or just merely shrug them off.
