Romney Campaign Adds ‘Chains’ To List Of Words Joe Biden Is Not Allowed To Say

by Rebecca Schoenkopf


The Romney Campaign just cannot believe it this time, and you will not either. You will be so embarrassed at the shameful tactics of your side, and will agree completely with the campaign’s demand for an apology. You guys, Joe Biden said “chains.”

Is Joe Biden a Marxist? Duh. Is he dog-whistling about slavery? Sure, why not. Is he vice-history’s greatest monster, who does nothing all day but make fun of people’s dead dads? OF COURSE HE IS, DON’T BE RIDICULOSE.

“After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama Campaign has reached a new low,” press secretary Andrea Saul said in a statement. “The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

Anyhoo, let us add “chains” to the list of things Joe Biden is not allowed to say, like so:

Tax returns.
Business experience.
Medicare.
Granny-starving.
Dads, being or having.
The four-year span when they murdered those Seattle hookers just to watch them die.
Chains.

What will be next? Probably “Romney,” “Ryan,” and “America.”

Oh no bringing up facts about the republican'ts can't be allowed. If the public were to figure out what giant douche bags they are they might not vote for them.

My Food Stamp President should apologize right now.

Oh oh. You're killing hookers again, Rebecca. Amadi is totally going to double black-list you now.

commiegirl99 August 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

What I feel bad about is two dead hooker jokes in one morning is just plain lazy. :(

Jus_Wonderin August 14, 2012 at 2:22 pm

It's really okay. There are times when I see someone that seems lazy and then I discover they are a dead hooker. I usually poke them to make sure, though.

I'm surprised Andrea Saul didn't release a statement extolling the benefits of Massachusetts' Chains Cutting services, courtesy of RomneyCare.

ChernobylSoup August 14, 2012 at 2:08 pm

After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama Campaign has reached a new low,”

Sweetheart, you don't know low yet. Obama/Biden haven't even sharpened their shivs.

johnnyzhivago August 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

I like that Nobama guy and his Amtrak sidekick, but honestly I don't think there is a scale for measuring how low they are willing to go in this clusterfuck.

yeah, how about talking about Ryan's family money – no more bullshit about how he brought himself up poor

ChillBill August 14, 2012 at 2:09 pm

When is Willard gonna cut the chains on those tax returns?

Gratuitous World August 14, 2012 at 2:09 pm

you guys – we can talk about about "chains," but only in our quiet cells.

Zepster August 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Does that cost extra?

chicken_thief August 14, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Come on, Todd – like you don't know …..

Beowoof August 14, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Damn all that talking facts and stuff, the reality of the republican plan is being hid by the RR team. ( And I do mean the railroad team as they are going to railroad the shit out of us).

LastGasp August 14, 2012 at 2:09 pm

So would it be OK for Biden to sing Aretha Franklin's "Chain Of Fools"?

For five long years I thought you were my man /
But I found out I'm just a link in your chain

Geminisunmars August 14, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I've been dancing around the room, shaking the tuchas and singing "Ch — ch — chain" since I read this post. At least in my mind I have.

Toomush_Infer August 14, 2012 at 2:44 pm

"Chains! My baby's got me locked up in chains…!"

CleverSobriquet August 14, 2012 at 2:09 pm

You got me where you want me
I ain't nothin' but your fool
Ya treated me mean
Oh you treated me cruel

Chain, chain, chain
(Chain, chain, chain)
Chain of fools

Beowoof August 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Oh I am sure they don't want that being sung. Too clearly spells out their plan for the 99%.

bumfug August 14, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Biden later explained, "…they ain't the kind that you can see
Whoa, it's chains of love got a hold on me, yeah."

IonaTrailer August 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

All my handsome black President has to do is sing a few bars and his ratings will jump.

memzilla August 14, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I'd say this is a pretty good indicator of what happened to L'il Mittens when he got beat up in elementary school, "WAAAAAHHHHH, NO FAIR YOU GUYS." (*snrfle*) (*mewl*) (*whimper*).

Toomush_Infer August 14, 2012 at 2:46 pm

I thought he was the beater-upperer….but they probably didn't have any blah folks in his school….

johnnyzhivago August 14, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Romney never even read those vetting reports on Ryan – the only reason he picked him was because he figured he was just the right height.

emmelemm August 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

And dreamy, dreamy handsome.

chicken_thief August 14, 2012 at 2:22 pm

If by "dreamy, dreamy handsome" you mean "has the eyes of a raving fucking lunatic axe murderer".

widestanceromance August 14, 2012 at 2:25 pm

I'm with you on this. I just don't get it.

Geminisunmars August 14, 2012 at 2:30 pm

You probably didn't think SP was MILF, or GILF material either. Clearly there is something wrong with us.

emmelemm August 14, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I'm just sayin' what's in Romney's heart (not mine).

Robot ♥ human sociopath.

widestanceromance August 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Jukesgrrl August 14, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Handsome? He looks like Eddie Munster!

GhostBuggy August 14, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Ha ha, Jesus Christ. This is their plan, isn't it? There's all this stuff out there in the media about Ol' Handsome Joe Biden being a walking gaffe, so they think they're going to capitalize on that. That's it. That's what they've got.

fuflans August 14, 2012 at 2:22 pm

and as i said on an earlier thread, you don't spend over 30 years in the senate without acquiring some debating skills.

well, unless you're rand paul.

Geminisunmars August 14, 2012 at 2:31 pm

I didn't know Rand's been a senator for 30 years. Time sure flies, whether you are having fun or not.

HistoriCat August 14, 2012 at 2:56 pm

fuflans has started drifting in time again. Someone give the temporal stabilizer a good whack.

fuflans August 14, 2012 at 3:54 pm

i came back specifically to warn you that rand paul is never going away and he doesn't get any better.

GhostBuggy August 14, 2012 at 3:15 pm

All I know is I can't wait until the debates (assuming Romney/Ryan even go to them, and not refuse like I suspect they'll threaten). Obama and Biden are going to drink these nerds' milkshakes.

fuflans August 14, 2012 at 3:57 pm

(really? you think they'll bail?)

i think ryan may be ok-ish. he's been in congress for what? 14 years? he's not a novice like palin.

romney is such a wild card. he had just terrible primary debates but also some better ones. i just hope john kerry has bamz well prepared.

GhostBuggy August 14, 2012 at 4:47 pm

No, I think they'll debate, it would be suicide not to. But I think they'll make a huge stink about the rules, decorum and related nonsense beforehand. They're doing that now, and we're still just at the TV commercial phase.

Yeah, Ryan's not a dummy, but he's kind of got the opposite problem. He's got a horrible record of saying scary things that will piss off the olds. I think he'll hold his own against Biden, but only just. And Romney did OK in some primary debates, but look at the people he was debating. Making Gingrich and Santorum look like clowns isn't a great achievement.

It's funny because he's got the same problem McCain had, and all Republican nominees will continue to have in the future. He was once a comparatively moderate Republican who thinks he has to veer far right to get any votes.

chicken_thief August 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

If Joe starts calling Mitt by his given first name I bet they add "rat" to the list.

widestanceromance August 14, 2012 at 2:45 pm

And you know what the rats ultimately did to Willard, right?

shavian August 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Just for the record, Biden's available for birthdays and graduations too.

johnnyzhivago August 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Ryan and his wife are in a mad dash to change their 4 kids names from Ayn, Rand, Atlas and Fountainhead to something less innocuous.

Geminisunmars August 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

They've selected Galt-1, Galt-2, and Galt-3.

IonaTrailer August 14, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Ryan is Romney's Roark.

Can we mention the chains that Mittens and Ryan are forging during their lives will be long and heavy.

Self-Uploader August 14, 2012 at 2:18 pm

BlueStateLibel August 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Also not allowed for Biden: asking voters directly or indirectly to vote Obama/Biden. "This is clearly inappropriate and beneath the level of discourse," explained Rmoney spokesman Charles Duckwad III.

freakishlywrong August 14, 2012 at 2:18 pm

"It lacks leadership and is UN-presidential"

SexySmurf August 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Sticks and stones make break my bones but chains and whips excite me.

mrpuma2u August 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Willard and the chosen Kock-sucker errand boy are already making me want to vomit.
BTW Ryan is a big government teat sucker from way back, his family made a lot of money with DOT highway contracts.

Sivart_R1 August 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

So Ryan's family really did build that (the infrastructure, that is…)

HogeyeGrex August 14, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Nah. The poor schlubs they hired for chicken feed built that. Ryan's family just skimmed a bunch of dough off the top.

finallyhappy August 14, 2012 at 2:30 pm

yeah, the gov't built that- not his family. Lying little punk

fartknocker August 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Boo fucking hoo Mittens. Joe Biden is fucking awesome and he's absolutely correct.

neiltheblaze August 14, 2012 at 2:16 pm

johnnyzhivago August 14, 2012 at 2:19 pm

I'm looking forward to hearing more substantive stuff on Ryan, like what songs he's downloaded into his iPod, what kind of underwear he wears and his favorite sports teams.

SmutBoffin August 14, 2012 at 2:25 pm

What are "The Creeps (I Wanna Give You)", Ayn Rand Underoos*, and THE PACK, Alex?

The Romney/Ryan team doesn't want to return us to chains, only to the sweatshops.

Don't forget, any mention of Romney's Mormon faith is taboo also. And naturally Biden cannot be allowed to point out that both he and Ryan are Catholic – that's just beyond outrageous.

iburl August 14, 2012 at 2:32 pm

In the VP debates Biden should have to wear a shock collar and whenever Ryan believes Biden is criticizing real americans, like Ayn Rand, "Joe" the "Plumber", Mitt Romney or Koch Bros., or discussing unfair subjects like plutocracy or tax returns he will get a mild electric shock. That way he will learn what real Americans are allowed and not allowed to discuss. That's only fair since Obamacare turned us into the USSR.

rmjagg August 14, 2012 at 4:18 pm

ryan might promise one a ' mild ' electric shock , but does one trust him ?

That's right. It's unacceptable that Biden used the word "chains". That's Allen West's word (for African-American liberals)

chicken_thief August 14, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Can you imagine the list if Romney had picked Santorum for the veep spot?

Jus_Wonderin August 14, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Brown would be on that list, I bet?

widestanceromance August 14, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Damn, I just read that as wet spot.

MissTaken August 14, 2012 at 2:39 pm

We used to talk about the weather
Make it last together
Days would last forever

Now we can't even talk about Chains of Love.

IonaTrailer August 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Dan Savage needs to Santorum Ryan.

kittensdontlie August 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Well, screw them, we can send as many chains(or email chain letters as the R-tards call them) as we want! My first will expose Ryan's secret marriage to Ayn Rand.

rmjagg August 14, 2012 at 4:20 pm

he married her before or after she finally died ?

Jus_Wonderin August 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Biden: "What ya gonna do Mitt? Hold me down and cut my hair??"

JustPixelz August 14, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Rhetoric the Repubicans find acceptable:

"Obama lies, freedom dies" — Sarah Palin about Obamacare. Chains for everyone!

"Obama has blood on his hands" — Reince Preibus about adjustments to the reimbursement schedules for Medicare. But now we can say the same thing about food stampt cuts ("Ryan has blood on his hands") or no-exemption abortion laws ("Ryan has blood on his hands") or needless war with Iraq ("Dubya has blood on his hands").

"There’s only one president that I know of in history that robbed Medicare … " Mitt Romney describing a democratically enacted law.

rmjagg August 14, 2012 at 4:23 pm

!"There’s only one president that I know of in history that robbed Medicare … " … he's projecting into the future , imagining him as that self-same president .

Chichikovovich August 14, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I mean, even George W loved him those Chains of Love

[Take it away, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings]

James Michael Curley August 14, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Aretha, tone down the hat a little.
Chain chain chain,
Chain of fools.

MonkeyMotion August 14, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Demand an apology? For THAT?!

Wow, the complete and utter wussification of the GOP is underway…

(Double down, Joe!)

SenileAgitation August 14, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Well they have a point. First Joe's telling a family-style story and then he out of nowhere starts mixing in politics and Wall Street and then he says banks will put "y'all" (= black people) "back in chains" (= slave times, or slippery roads in New Hampshire), and I thought it was pretty offensive/ insensitive and deserving of apologies from someone who should know how sensitive black people are since he works for one (duh!) and stop saying "y'all". How low can Joe go? He's the like limbo king of language.

Chet Kincaid_ August 14, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Well let's assume that's what he was "really" saying. What do you call tempting black people with loans they really can't afford so that you can make money in highly questionable insurance schemes, leaving them with underwater mortgages and neighborhoods full of abandoned houses? The Emancipation Proclamation?

widestanceromance August 14, 2012 at 2:57 pm

HEY, ROMNEY/RYAN:

BUGGAR!

imissopus August 14, 2012 at 2:59 pm

I shot a hooker in Seattle…just to watch her die…

Sacanagem August 14, 2012 at 3:09 pm

I'm starting to think that a self-imposed news blackout until November might not be such a bad idea.

fuflans August 14, 2012 at 3:15 pm

i had to rewatch this again just because i do love me some gaffey joe.

thanks mom! keep em coming!

bikerlaureate August 14, 2012 at 3:19 pm

…and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election.

That just reeks of Rove's clammy tendrils.

I'd shout "projection!" again, but the difference seems to be that the Rmoney gets all wounded when there's even a whiff of truth in what's been said.

Tundra Grifter August 14, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Chains? Like Staples, Domino's, and Godfather's Pizza?

Tundra Grifter August 14, 2012 at 3:43 pm

For a good five years we'd had to listen to every possible lie about Mr. Obama – he wasn't born here, he's different, he's foreign, he's a Muslin, he hates American and successful people, he doesn't like yellow mustard, he can't throw a baseball, he's checking out babes from South America, he pal'd around with terrorists, he's a socialist/Marxist/communist, until thinking people are ready to throw up.

But now there's going to be an election and we're in the middle of a campaign so all of a sudden the Republicans discover civility and need for polite discourse.

Yeh, right…

Jukesgrrl August 14, 2012 at 5:02 pm

And don't forget the quiet rooms. Where were they when we had to listen to Palin and Coulter for three years?

ChessieNefercat August 14, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I want to see Handsome Old Joe Biden do a video ad set to "Chain of Fools", preferably with John Travolta and the Oh So 80s backup dancers from "Michael" dancing along in the background.

rmjagg August 14, 2012 at 4:27 pm

or willard , ryan , rove and bachmann ( marcus ) doing it , wearing glitter thongs ….

Limeylizzie August 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I love Handsome Joe and would trust him with my life, Mitten's not so much.

commiegirl99 August 14, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I completely agree.

Limeylizzie August 14, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Have you read his autobiography? I wept buckets during the part where his first wife dies.

Incitefully_Joe August 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

You know, I have to admit, it's possible Biden was using a racial code word.

Mitt Romney's campaign and surrogates would never stoop so low as to use racial code against that foreign, un-American, socialist, Kenyan, Welfare-check-writing, mau-mau of a Food Stamp President of questionable birth and national origin, because Mitt Romney possesses that Anglo Saxon understanding.

BZ1 August 14, 2012 at 5:22 pm

and don't use any of them metaphors, similes or the like

ttommyunger August 14, 2012 at 9:28 pm

Actually, it would be best if Joe and Barry would just STFU, period; dontcha think? Yeah, that's the ticket….

Baba_NinjaCat12 August 14, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Today attendees will receive a complementary Adidas' new JS Roundhouse Mids. Why wait being in chains in 2013 by the possible Romney/Ryan administration. We just need to unload these mistake built by young Chinese workers.

widestanceromance August 14, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I never muttered through gritted teeth or shouted the "c" word as much as I did during the 2008 election, so you are correct.

proudgrampa August 14, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Actually, I did think she was kinda MILF or GILF, as long as she kept her mouth shut.

HistoriCat August 14, 2012 at 4:31 pm

That's a warning? I thought it was a reason to commit suicide.

You could at least slip us a few winning lottery numbers.
