Rumors have been afloat lately that Obama is set to dump Biden. Judging from the frenzied, one might say hysterical, tone of Biden in the speech earlier this week featured in the video clip above, one might well believe that Biden is looking at the political hook coming toward him. This might explain why Biden forced Obama’s hand on gay marriage by coming out in favor of it before Obama did. Rule one of being Veep is never upstaging the POTUS. Presumably Biden believes that if he is beloved of the base of the Democrat party, Obama will not dump him. Alas, strategizing, indeed thinking of any sort, has never been Biden’s strong suit.
Unfortunately Biden matters not one whit to the Democrat base, and by acting out he merely convinces Obama that perhaps it is time that Joe meet the acquaintance of the many individuals and groups that Obama has thrown under the bus in his political career.
This is all so unfair. Joe Biden, as beloved national clown, has been one of the few success stories of this administration. Imagine how much grimmer the past four years would have been without the comic stylings of Jollie Joe. Poltical pratfalls and endless gaffes, a tireless willingness to play the complete buffoon, nothing has been beneath Biden in his endless task to lighten the mood of the nation. I therefore announce the formation of the Biden Forever Superpac. We will do everything in our power to keep Joe on the ticket. Save Joe! I pray that we prevail, but if we fail, we will always have YouTube to remember Joe by!
