“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’”
Joe Biden, September 22, 2008
Beloved National Clown and Veep has announced that he is not running for President:
Tis a pity. Joe’s talent for pratfalls and endless gaffes would have enlivened what is doubtless going to be a dreary campaign. Ah well, we always have video compilations!
With Profound Apologies to the Bard
Farewell the dullard mind! Farewell hilarity!
Farewell the perfumed reporters and the big newscasts
That makes ambition virtue! Oh, farewell!
Farewell the growling motorcade and the shrill Trump,
The spirit-stirring bribes, th’ ear-piercing crowds,
The rampant Jackass, and all quality,
Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious Politics!
And O you video cams, whose rude lenses
The mortal Vox Populi loud clamors counterfeit,
Farewell! Biden’s occupation’s gone.
