As our friend Allahpundit would say, it’s come to this.
“Speak softy and carry a big stick,” Joe Biden said, looking stoic in front of eight American flags, “And I promise you, the president has a big stick. I promise you.” The audience doubled over in laughter. Had the VP just made a dick joke? Was it in the script? Or was he ad-libbing and just oblivious? No one knew and no one cared—our fave running mate was on a tear again, and no one was gonna stop him.
Imagine a Republican making a “big stick” joke about Obama. The media would have a nuclear-grade fit, charging Republicans with using black stereotypes to attack the president.
But Joe Biden does it and we’re supposed to think it’s cute and harmless. Because he’s a freaking moron. And yet they’re okay with an acknowledged freaking moron being one heartbeat from the presidency.
