“Senator Biden is Now My Homeboy”

posted by on October 28 at 15:29 PM

As an antidote to this Florida reporter’s interview with Joe Biden, how about this Florida reporter’s interview with Joe Biden?

(Start at 4:00 for maximum cuteness.)

If you skip to 4:00 you miss him saying "Chews Nannel 5"

I liked the shaved Joe Biden better. Oh wait, I'm thinking of Jerry Brown.

Joe Biden knows what the Vice President does! Imagine that! Granted it took him a minute and half to explain it, but still.

Also, does Biden say at 3:23, “I didn’t want to be Vice President”. That’s a little weird…

The better future of our country is expressed on so many levels in this video.

I wonder how well Comrade McCain will do as the new Bob Dole - will he do those commercials too?

I think my imaginary uterus skworkled a little when he said "Senator Biden is now my homeboy". Can I have a baby that adorable? What? Dudes can't have babies? Aw, shoot.

This kid rocks. Can he replace Sarah Palin on the Bumblican ticket?

Ah, this is the Joe Biden I know and love. The guy that drones on and on and on, boring the poor kid to death until his little arm is about to fall off holding the goddamned mic up.

In the end, he is only slightly more right than Palin's abysmal answer.

Hint, Joe: The VP (1) fills in if something bad happens to the prez, and (2) breaks a tie in the Senate. That's it.

Jezus, I hope President Obama has about 4000 secret service guys surrounding him at all times.

Oh, and that kid is cute X 100.

Holy shit that kid is adorable. If I could be guaranteed that my spawn would be that cute I might just consider breeding.

actually VP is the president of the senate, too. and the const. goes on to say the senate can choose its other officers. This implies yes the VP dude is going to be there in the senate like running it all the time.

what else can that clause possibly mean?

And why are we afraid of this?
I would love to see Biden actively serving as president of the senate.

Maybe for starters he can rule that the dumb cloture rule is over and done with. It's kind of shocking really .... do you know of any other association .... your bridge club or your ski group or your condo association or your 37 district democrats where it takes a 60% vote just to be able to vote on something?
So that 60 senators can be defeated by 40 senators .... who represent just 18% of the USA population?


who's really in favor of giving the 18% on the far right veto over our Pres. Obama's plans?

Pls. make a note of it -- we need change here -- or else we elect Obama then nothing gets passed or it gets watered down, etc. etc.

Palin would have a pretty tough time with this kid interviewing her.

that poor kids arm is about to fall off!

Joe Biden has *always* been my homeboy

Posted by jm | October 28, 2008 4:29 PM

I'm going to have to go with Ziggity- Chews nannel 5 was the best part!

Posted by seagrl82 | October 28, 2008 4:34 PM

I like how Joe calls him 'man' twice. Even senators try to fit in, I guess.

Posted by Jude Fawley | October 28, 2008 5:25 PM

#8 Biden knows what a vice president does. He's giving a simplified answer. Get a fucking clue.

Cute -- but the Beat Kids from Wonder Showzen have him pwned.

Way to go, Damon!

Even the children in Florida speak Ebonics.
