It may not be a top tip in the Toastmaster's guide, but Vice President Joe Biden did win back the attention of a sleepy audience of donors Friday when he jokingly berated them for being "dull as hell."
"I guess what I’m trying to say without boring you too long at breakfast –- and you all look dull as hell, I might add," he told a crowd of more than 200 fundraisers from the Turkish and Azerbaijani communities in Washington DC. "The dullest audience I have ever spoken to. Just sitting there, staring at me. Pretend you like me!”
Vice President Biden occasionally takes his role as America's Crazy Uncle™ a little too far, but he's somehow still lovable. You have to kind of like this guy, just because he says exactly what he thinks. (Though if he tries to run for president in 2016, I will love watching his campaign explode into a mushroom cloud of bitter tears and inflated self-importance.)
