Joe Biden Just Keeps on Delivering

Everyone joked when Obama chose him that he would be a loose cannon, but who could have imagined all the gaffes Joe Biden would provide in such a short time? This is just the latest:

"Hey folks, 37 more hours!"

Joe Biden greeted a crowd primed for the home stretch of this long campaign with as much energy as he's had in the last two months on the trail as well as some typical Bidenese.

Telling voters in this swing state that "change is on the way," the Democratic vice presidential candidate offered one of his now-expected random introductory tangents.

The latest was about his sister, Val, his wife Jill, and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who introduced the Bidens at the rally of 1,100 people in the gym at Longview Community College.

Biden called his sister a "girl-boy," meaning a tomboy, and then explained that girl-boys are softer than "girl-girls."

"You know why I think Jill likes Claire McCaskill so well, Senator McCaskill? Jill is one of five sisters, Claire is one of three sisters. And I tell you what, you women raised with sisters are different than women raised with brothers," Biden said as both women joined him on stage.

"My sister is smart, runs every one of my campaigns; is beautiful; graduated with honors from college; is homecoming queen. But she's a ... she is what I call a 'girl-boy' growing up, you know what I mean?"

"And I tell you what? Girl-girls are tougher than girl-boys," he said. "But there's one important thing I noticed.The great thing about marrying into a family with five sisters, there's always one that loves you. 'Cause you can count on splitting them a bit. You know what I mean?

"I shouldn't be going off like this, but -- hey, folks, 37 more hours, 37 more hours," he then said.

What the heck did he just say? As the campaign comes to a close, I thought it might be fun to ask "What is your favorite Biden moment?"

I remember when Dan Quayle left office a company went under that spend their entire time making mugs and T-shirts with his gaffes. It seem they would have been much more fertile soil with 3 Letter word J-O-B-S Bidden.

This reminds me of "The Simpsons" episode where Homer has the crayon removed from way up his nose and he instantly becomes a genius. Maybe with dumbo's leftover campaign money they can get Dr. Nick to work on the old gaff master's sinuses. Who knows what they'll retrieve? gore's lock box...or slick willy's see-gar.

You have to admit, it's going to be an entertaining four-eight years. The Yogi Berra of politics, honestly.

Up the nose would be cokehead "Barry the Blowman" Obama, as they called him in college. He wrote that he "enthusiastically" assaulted his sinuses and brain with cocaine during those years, but never said he stopped.

Just how has Biden been "splitting" those sisters? It's not incest if it's a sister-in law, is it? Biden's wife is a lesbian? Biden's sister a lesbian? And Senator Claire McCaskill, too? What the hell was he saying?
SFB comes to mind.
