Biden to table of Greek men: “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos”

posted at 2:41 pm on August 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

There are two categories of Biden idiocies, the ones that are genuinely offensive (“They gon’ put y’all back in chains”) and the ones that aren’t really offensive but would certainly be treated that way if he was a Republican. This one is a category two, I think, although admittedly the line is fine. If he went up to a table of Italian men and called himself “Joe Bidini,” that’s probably okay. If he went up to a table of Jewish men and called himself “Joe Bidenstein,” a little dodgier. If he went up to a table of Chinese men and called himself “Joe Wang,” he’d be in trouble even though, let’s face it, a lot of people would giggle.

I like to imagine him saying this in that funny Indian accent he sometimes uses:

Approaching a table of men he knew to be Greek, the VP said, “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos.”

“Ask George,” he said – unclear who George was, maybe someone at the table –“who’s the most Greek Irishman he’s ever known.” Sounded like Biden was suggesting he is.

He moved on to a table of three women, sitting down briefly, before moving on to one where two women were sitting.

“Let’s dance,” he said to one, named Jennifer, as she stood up right next to him. They posed for a photo before he turned to her tablemate, who was wearing scrubs, and asked, ‘Are you a nurse?” He then sat down and started speaking to her quietly, presumably about nurses.

Then, he posed with a group of restaurant staff and owners, and was talking about Greek food and rice pudding.

“Can I get some rice pudding to go?” he asked, just before the pool was ushered out at 1:05 p.m. Now holding in van.

Not sure how the pool reporter knew that Biden knew the men at the table were Greek. The story’s actually a lot funnier if you assume that he didn’t. But oh well. Kudos to whoever wrote this report for capturing the essence of the man. The “rice pudding” line really tops off his stream-of-consciousness doofishness perfectly.

Six days left until the liberal dream of Vice President Hillary officially dies, my friends. Tick tock.

Should have introduced himself to the woman: “Hi, I’m Joe Bidgina!”

Joe Panderopoulis.

/Biden’s such an assclown.

On the surface Biden appears to be the stupidest man who ever lived but looks and actions are deceiving. While we concentrate on the stupidity, Biden is stealing us blind. Just read Michele Malkin’s ‘Culture of Corruption’where Biden and his sons, Beau and Hunter have their crooked fingers in nearly every pie in the country. Actually Biden has no religion and no political beliefs-just faux stupidity as a smokescreen for graft and corruption.

Very true. Thanks for reminding our newly activated Axelrod Hot Gas Sleeper Cells.

In the case of the Biden Clan, it’s obvious that the coconut doesn’t fall very far away from the tree.

More like Jimmy the Greek. Biden says nonsense every day, but, hey, he’s just Vice President of the United States.

AT least Spiro Agnew had an excuse; he was a crook…

Scranton Joe is just an idiot/lifelong DIMocrat politician (interchangable descriptor)…

It just hit me that Biden walks around in a self satisfied self deluded haze like Major Frank Burns of M*A*S*H fame.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on September 1, 2012 at 11:06 AM

If all Biden did was silly stuff like this it would be fine, even endearing.
It’s the darker garbage like the “chains’ remark that reveal that he’s just a nasty hack at heart.

Spiro Agnew spoke off the cuff,
Spiro Agnew spoke very tough!
All Spiro’s friends in the North and the South,
Couldn’t get Spiro’s foot out of his mouth!

Obama sent Joe Biden, “The Intellect of the Democratic Party” out to buy a new outfit for Obama to wear when he gives his “coronation” speech. When he got back, Obama just shook his head and said, “Idiot, I told you to go to Cox’s and get a Seersucker Suit. What did you do, go to Sears?….

And, this dimwit is just a heartbeat away from being President of the United States. I guess it really could be worse than Obama being President.
