Confirmed: Not much difference between “bad lip-reading Joe Biden” and the real Joe Biden

posted at 6:36 pm on April 16, 2012 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate, gibberish as only Joe could deliver it — with a funny raunchy streak that’s true to Biden the caricature but not Biden the man. It’s not unusual to see sex jokes used as part of a goof on him; the Onion likes those in its own Biden stories, either as the main gag or as a subplot. Why is that? Unless I’m forgetting something, he’s never had a sex scandal. I think it’s more a function of his persona: The hair plugs plus the slightly unctuous easy charm, replete with occasional use of lingo like “man” to punctuate his thoughts. (“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, man.”) He’s got the superficial attributes of an aging bachelor who’s still on the prowl, even though of course he’s not. All he needs is a gold chain and he could either be selling used cars or starring in the film version of “Leisure Suit Larry.” Typecasting.

Has there ever been such an idiot in such a high office?

KOOLAID2 on April 16, 2012 at 6:38 PM

Amend that!…Fool!
JugEars is the idiot!

KOOLAID2 on April 16, 2012 at 6:39 PM

It’s not good, but it’s tight.

John the Libertarian on April 16, 2012 at 6:40 PM

Biden should be the North Korean VP!

KOOLAID2 on April 16, 2012 at 6:40 PM

Too raunchy.
Perry’s and Romney’s were much better.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 16, 2012 at 6:40 PM

Needs more mocking sing-song Indian accent, Joe.

Christien on April 16, 2012 at 6:42 PM

Reminds me of the neighbor dude when I was a kid during the Disco Era. Guy was in his early 60′s but he had the look; those crazy hip-hugger pants, wide lapel shirt, gold amulet around the neck.

He drove a customized Chevy Monza wagon complete with rear opera windows, flame paintjob and Cragger mag wheels.

That’s Biden, all the way.

Bishop on April 16, 2012 at 6:43 PM

There is nothing behind those cold blank eyes.

tom daschle concerned on April 16, 2012 at 6:44 PM

That picture under the headline… separated at birth or soon to be a smash comedy hit coming soon to a theater near you?

de rigueur on April 16, 2012 at 6:44 PM

Pretty good but nothing will measure up to the Rick Perry BLR clip.

They’re black eyes…like a doll’s eyes…

He’s funnier on his own with no help from BLR.

We had one of those, too!

massrighty on April 16, 2012 at 6:51 PM

I should clarify; we had a neighbor to that spec…

NOT that we had a Monza!

massrighty on April 16, 2012 at 6:52 PM

I wish these BLR guys would do another music video. In my humble opinion they’re way better than these political ones, and these are pretty dang funny.

You’re right. How is this different from regular Joe?

Why are you people clapping?

Her line wasn’t long enough?

Christien on April 16, 2012 at 6:55 PM

Any of you guys ever notice that at the State of the Union Address Biden always sits there behind Obama with that expression on his face like he’s holding back a fart?

radjah shelduck on April 16, 2012 at 6:57 PM

Has there ever been such an idiot in such a high office?

KOOLAID2 on April 16, 2012 at 6:38 PM

Yes. He’s currently President of the United States.

…have you seen the Speaker of the House’s facial expression?…Biden IS farting!!!

KOOLAID2 on April 16, 2012 at 7:10 PM

Yeah, but the latest CNN polling data shows that ObaMao is building a sizeable lead over Romney in the Biden household. Still waiting on the crosstabs…

cicerone on April 16, 2012 at 7:11 PM

Alla…funniest post you have EVER written..mak
de me laugh out loud! Biden makes Quayle look like a genius!

LaRepublican on April 16, 2012 at 7:16 PM

Nah, he’s just SUPERFICIAL. Period.

And he has the same annoying habit Jerry Brown has. When he starts talking real fast, you know he’s throwing bullshit.

GarandFan on April 16, 2012 at 7:27 PM

Why is that?
=============

Maybe’s the real test,of a Democrat to be

a Baptism of Fire type of thingy!

pikachuuuuuu haha this was a good one..a little more edgy but appropriate i think…just look at joe biden, he looks like a vulgar dude..look at what he said about obamacare and how big of deal it was

sadsushi on April 16, 2012 at 7:34 PM

I don`t get the joke, seems like classic Biden to me *shrugs*

NY Conservative on April 16, 2012 at 7:36 PM

I have a niece who started law school last fall. Toward Thanksgiving, she was starting to feel quite anxious about succeeding academically. I took hold of her shoulders, looked her straight in the eye, and said “Joe f***ing Biden made it through law school. I think you’ll do just fine if you want to.” She laughed pretty hard.

She’s doing fine. Joe’s an idiot.

M240H on April 16, 2012 at 7:40 PM

I miss Leisure Suit Larry. That was the most fun on a computer I ever had. Played them all then they were replaced with Freddy Farkus Frontier Pharmacist and it wasn’t the same. And yes, Joe Biden would be a perfect Leisure Suit Larry.

bopbottle on April 16, 2012 at 7:59 PM

So I’m confused… can Jeff Dunham sue for copyright infringement over this, or not?

VekTor on April 16, 2012 at 8:04 PM

I LOVE those BLR vids…the Rick Santorum one from a couple months back is hilarious.

You’d think living in the middle of a crack-fic would be interesting, and amusing…

It isn’t… especially with one this badly written.

I love these. All of ‘em are LOL funny. Great, great stuff.

A Romney/female ticket is a certainty at this point.

Clean and articulate as ever. Good ole plugs.

No, but he did go on and on, once, about how beautiful Ukrainian women are. And he was right about that, of course.

I knew Neil Kinnock. I served with Neil Kinnock. Neil Kinnock was a friend of mine. You Joe, are no Neil Kinnock.

The idea of him ever ending up in the White House does indeed invoke the two-note theme. Horrifying.

Sheriff Joe is a little more coherent here and his syntax is much more flowing. I think this must be a bad lipreading.

DuctTapeMyBrain on April 16, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Has there ever been such an idiot in such a high office?

KOOLAID2 on April 16, 2012 at 6:38 PM

I have to agree, how did this guy, who comes across as (is) a complete buffoon, get to be the VP?

I keep hearing what a great foreign policy guru he is. but what is the actual truth?

This guy wanted to segregate Iraq into different factions, yeah that was a great idea, can’t see any problems there… Segregation is always the answer to a democrat (you know to each his own, to each his, whatever).

Advised Barry to not take the hit againt Bin Laden, yeah this guy is a genius…

But Palin was “unqualified”

Look-listen. If it’s not Keri…
Thank heavens it’s not hairy.

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on April 16, 2012 at 11:29 PM

with a funny raunchy streak

Raunchy is funny to the immature & easily amused among us, I suppose. Thanks for the warning; not clicking.

The hair plugs

You neglected to mention the botox forehead!

I give it two toes up!

Free Indeed on April 17, 2012 at 8:48 AM

Biden is an amiable dunce who has made himself wealthy through a political career. He is VP for the simple reason that he has Senate connections (fat lot of good that has done Obama) and is no real threat to Obama’s throne. Otherwise, if Ron Paul is the crazy uncle you keep under the staircase, Biden is the goofy uncle you hope doesn’t drink too much at Christmas. Hard to get too angry at such an obvious overachiever.

UnrepentantCurmudgeon on April 17, 2012 at 11:01 AM

A heartbeat away from the Presidency.

unclesmrgol on April 17, 2012 at 12:15 PM

I’ll bet Biden has a lot of moments, when alone, where he says to himself’ Holy SH**TT! How do I keep getting re-elected? What am I doing to get those votes? Just how stupid are those voters? lol

dahni on April 17, 2012 at 12:15 PM

I cannot BELIEVE Biden gets away with saying these things. And he’s a heart beat away from being president? Remember how liberal’s made fun of George Bush for saying “nooky-ler”? Where the main stream media on these gaffes?
