Picture of the Day

posted at 1:00 pm on January 3, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Via Glenn Reynolds, the White House actually published this on their Flickr page:

A close-up of Barack Obama’s face suggests that the stern body language of the President towards his VP isn’t a fluke:

I’m sure that all is well between the two, and that this is just a fluke of photography.  After all, what has Biden done that could have irritated his boss?  Er, for that matter, what exactly has Biden done at all?  Could Obama be annoyed that Biden has yet to do anything for Obama, or is the President just “messing with Joe”?

In any case, why not have a little fun with this?  Add your caption in the comments!

Hawaii huh – nice tan Obama…..gosh did I really say that? Stand up Barry and take a bow!

I didn’t mean to offend you by suggesting that you should only get 3/5ths vote.

All I said was Al Gore never made pres and he’s worth far more that your lousy Nobel Prize is.

I was just suggesting that Tiger might fix us up, that’s all.

Gosh Barry, I didn’t mean to offend you when I suggested that hair plugs be included in Obamacare.

Say Barry, who is the Secretary of State anyway?

Meanwhile, Biden is thinking, “I can’t believe I hitched my wagon to this loser. I mean enough with the bodysurfing.”

I had another thought. They reminded me of that Subway ad using adults whose voices are dubbed over with the voices of littler boys. Here, Biden could be telling Obama that he’s got some issues of Penthouse in his tree fort–but Obama’s not sure Biden is telling him the truth.

BuckeyeSam on January 4, 2010 at 9:25 AM

I had this same feeling about Biden. Doofus that he is, he loves his country. The rest of the contestants were of the Obmama “control” nature, including Hillary. I think we can agree that none of them are good for America.

I kinda have this take on Biden as well. I see him more like a well intentioned doofus like Tobias Fünke on Arrested Developement.
