I am laughing out loud right now. I was just talking to a co-worker of mine. We were reminiscing about Dan Quayle. Seriously, what an idiot. I remember every night, it seemed, the late night talk show hosts would have more material about Dan Quayle than anything else. He just won’t stop.
Do you remember? Seriously, America should have seen it coming. I mean it all started with him screwing up the lines of his own swearing in. And then (just the highlights I can remember, in no particular order), he made a racist comment about Indians in a Dunkin Donuts. At a rally he told a paraplegic supporter to stand up. Who can forget the time he dropped the F-bomb at one of the president’s most important bill signings. He talked about the time President Roosevelt “took to the television airwaves” after the stock market crashed in 1929, even though Roosevelt was the governor of New York at the time, and television wasn’t invented yet. He plagiarized an entire speech from a British labor party leader. I remember the late night talk show hosts went wild when he claimed to have finished top of his class in law school, when he actually graduated #76 out of 85. AND WHO could forget when he said, “the number-one job facing the middle class…happens to be…a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs”. Oh yeah…Good times, good times.
Oh wait!! I’m sorry. My bad. Quayle didn’t do any of those things. Silly me. Isn’t my face red? He misspelled “potato.” Our current Vice President Joe Biden did everything I listed above. Sorry about that. WOW…how did THAT happen?
Hmmm….it kinda makes you wonder, why is it that Quayle is remembered as an idiot/embarrassment to the country, but Biden is touted as a genius and a lovable character? How is it my co-worker remembers Quayle as an idiot? When asked why, she replied, “He can’t even spell ‘potato’.” She didn’t know one thing about Biden.
Wait a minute!!! Is there a double standard?
When I saw this article: Don’t worry, Joe: It ain’t so. Why Obama won’t run with Hillary Clinton I was relieved. We should definitely keep him around. He is like Teflon.
Yeah, the more I think about it, I would say Biden is a pretty good running mate. As long as you don’t mind his constant requests to tell him about the rabbits.
