Joe Biden Encourages Man In Wheelchair To ‘Stand Up’

by Sara K. Smith

Oh God Joe Biden is hilarious. He cannot go more than 45 minutes without saying something incredibly awkward. Fortunately, he is so used to making embarrassing remarks that he’s like, “Enh, well, start the clock again people!” and just moves on to the next GAFFE. His Secret Service code name is Gaffey McGaffesalot, because he makes so many gaffes, even in his dreams where he makes rude remarks to articulate wheelchair-bound Indian operators of 7/11s while plagiarizing the Constitution.

He’s appealing to the fundamentalists. People get out of wheelchairs every week at those churches. Fuck’in drink poison, raise the dead, centrifuge uranium. THE HOLY SPIRIT, PEOPLE!

Gopherit v2.0 September 10, 2008 at 7:41 pm

But he’s so classy when he does it. With Biden, you forgive a lot.

I love Biden, but I’m wondering if there wasn’t a secondary roll of preventing an Obama assassination by picking him as VP…..you know, kinda like Dubya did with Cheney.

NoWireHangers September 10, 2008 at 7:41 pm

Well, if Barack touched him he would have been able to stand.

jagorev September 10, 2008 at 7:42 pm

If John McCain were in Biden’s place, he would hold a press conference complaining about how Chuck’s unpatriotic refusal to stand up is a sign of sexism.

LittlePhatGuise September 10, 2008 at 7:43 pm

Excuse me, Senator…does it hurt when you step on your dick like that?

shortsshortsshorts September 10, 2008 at 7:44 pm

There are quite a few pigs with lipstick on in the crowd.

oh man. so instead of just apologizing he makes everyone else in the room do the one thing this guy can’t do.

thats wicked smooth.

rambone September 10, 2008 at 7:48 pm

Ah, Biden. I’ll keep cutting him slack as long as he keeps the laughs coming.

jollymonsing September 10, 2008 at 7:48 pm

“hey everyone, to cover up that awkward faux pas, l command everyone in the room to do the one thing this guy i just embarrassed cannot do.”

Twinkle Twinkle Lil Star September 10, 2008 at 7:50 pm

awww. he’s adorable.

Man, if I were only thirty years older… I’m just sayin’ Mrs. Biden better watch herself some.

DarkSynergy September 10, 2008 at 7:50 pm

Oh God, Biden’s one punch in the wheelchair man’s forehead away from being an evangelical. Which would make him a republican. Dammit.

jollymonsing September 10, 2008 at 7:55 pm

[re=92015]LittlePhatGuise[/re]: haha, yeah that’s right.

am i now subject to being hazed?

jimh September 10, 2008 at 7:56 pm

At least he doesn’t get all pissed off and just push him out of the way.
I’m talking to you WALNUTS!

[re=92021]jollymonsing[/re]: Nah, you’ve taken care of that yourself. Now sit down, would ya?

God love’s Joe Biden. That made my day. Thanks Joe.

Cathangover September 10, 2008 at 8:08 pm

That wheelchair saved Biden’s ass, cause the dude was wearing one of those “Sarah Palin is a Cunt” shirts.

SayItWithWookies September 10, 2008 at 8:09 pm

And Steve Carrell will be playing Biden in the movie version of this election.

ZippyDee September 10, 2008 at 8:11 pm

I know this is horribly off topic and I have no earthy right to be here anywayz, but I just heard Palin in on a flight to Alaska as we speak! Does that mean she is about to blow another little critter named Pole, or Kodiak, or Igloo out?

Rush September 10, 2008 at 8:13 pm

c’mon Chuck, now drop and give me 20 you worthless and weak maggot. Say you love it Chuck.

Gee Wonkers, after the election, we can tour the grounds where the Titanic sank.

LittlePhatGuise September 10, 2008 at 8:14 pm

[re=92021]jollymonsing[/re]: I was quoting the Senator.
But if you’re into that kinky shit, this is the place for you!

grobby22 September 10, 2008 at 8:19 pm

Well at least we know now that Biden is not Jesus

magic titty September 10, 2008 at 8:19 pm

Off topic – i’m going to hang Dick Morris upside down by his feet and bleed him out.

magic titty September 10, 2008 at 8:25 pm

Ha! Senator Joe! What the fuck, man?

“Hey, Stevie Wonder’s here – Stevie, look at that Obama banner over there. Oh bloody hell! I’m sorry pal, you know I love ya buddy. Everybody look at Stevie. Just look at him.”

Gopherit v2.0 September 10, 2008 at 8:29 pm

[re=92049]magic titty[/re]: It’s still not as embarrassing as the time he tried to give McCain a hi-five.

Rush September 10, 2008 at 8:29 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, John Wayne Bobbit is here. Guys, please take your junk out and show it to John Wayne….

He handled that very well, I thought. Pretty smooth.

lilblackcorvette September 10, 2008 at 8:43 pm

i think cbs took the “lipstickon pig” McPain ad down. wha’s up wit that?

AngryBlakGuy September 10, 2008 at 8:44 pm

…what you didn’t get to see was when Biden made these mistakes:

-to the mute woman: “Come up here tell us your story!”

-to the blind child: “here, catch!”

-to the double amputee Iraq vet: “we all need to walk a day in your shoes”

-to the guy with no arms: “Hi 5!!!”

Itsjustme September 10, 2008 at 8:45 pm

[re=92037]ZippyDee[/re]: As Delicious said — she’s not preggers yet, but she is making room for one more.

CivicHoliday September 10, 2008 at 8:51 pm

This was in my home town. Nobody I know or have read about found it offensive.

Itsjustme September 10, 2008 at 9:00 pm

[re=92071]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: Yes, I suppose. If it wasn’t me, who else would it be?

jarsilver September 10, 2008 at 9:00 pm

I just met Biden tonight. Every time an underage girl would come up to him, he would tell them, “Remember, no boys ’til you’re 30!”

Then he would say “My daughter didn’t follow it but you should!” and he’d kiss their forehead and infect them with syphilis.

DoctorCulturae September 10, 2008 at 9:03 pm

Keith O on fire…. a brilliant change of the subject back to Bush Failure #1 (no Osama) and McFail’s knowledge of how to apprehend him…

Rachel’s got a scoop via the Nation of WALNUTS on a boat with Follieri & Hathaway…

That is experience folks. Immediately call yourself an asshole and the press has nothing. Compare that to WALNUTS! repeatedly pulling the string on Caribou Barbie, “Thaaanks but nuuuu thaaanks.”

[re=92088]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: Damnit! Are you being sexist?

iwillsavethispatient September 10, 2008 at 9:18 pm

[re=92091]Itsjustme[/re]: I hope not, it’d be a bit of a waste of my time, as I’m not running for President.

trophy(forparticipation)wife September 10, 2008 at 9:18 pm

Biden should invite Walnuts to do the wave.

Serolf Divad September 10, 2008 at 9:28 pm

At the debates Biden’s going to challenge Palin to a pissing contest. Scary thing is: she’ll probably win.

ky-jellydonuts September 10, 2008 at 9:42 pm

Any politician can make this mistake. A pro like Joe catches himself before he says the next thing that comes to his mind and finally comes up with a live-mic-appropriate “God love you.” I can think of a LOT of things I’d say after I just screwed up that would have caused the more delicate among the crowd to faint.

Jingo September 10, 2008 at 9:44 pm

Biden just wanted everyone to stand up so the guy in the wheelchair could see what he was missing.

tunamelt September 10, 2008 at 9:47 pm

[re=92099]Serolf Divad[/re]: She can bust out that plastic she-nis thing.

HoofHearted September 10, 2008 at 9:55 pm

Biden asked everyone to stand, just to show the guy in the wheelchair what he was missing.

[re=92086]hrhkingfriday[/re]: Make sure you follow it up with a swift kick to the nuts.

DC Spring September 10, 2008 at 11:00 pm

[re=92105]ky-jellydonuts[/re]: Exactly, the phrase “fkn hell, I’ve just sunk the ticket” may have been reaction number one, but the instinct that talking around is a shit prospect suggests a political instinct to address a scrwe-up. This good, no? Could be change we can believe in…

Or it means that people in wheelchairs are going to trample all over this campaign.

S.Luggo September 10, 2008 at 11:00 pm

Before his hair plugs came loose, what Joe meant to say was that, despite their parents’ example, the Palin kids should stand up and veer away from a life of drugs.

Tell me that is not fucking hard core. Mocking her baby. Shit.
