If you’re just as frustrated with the GOP campaign for president so far – the latest annoyance being a top Romney adviser suggesting his boss man’s platform would be reset “almost like an Etch A Sketch” during the general election, provided he wins the primary battles – Vice President Joe Biden comes to the rescue with some much-needed comic relief:
“You know there’s an old Irish saying, there’s all kinds of old Irish sayings. My grandfather Finnegan, I think he made them up. But uh, it says, may the hinges of our friendship never go rusty. Well, with these two folks that you’re about to meet if you haven’t already, there’s no doubt about them staying oiled and lubricated here,” said Biden. After this comment, the audience erupted in laughter, and the VP smirked as he realized the trap he had just set for himself.
Biden followed up with some playful humor. “Now for you who are not full Irish in this room, lubricated has a different meaning for us all,” he joked to the sound of more laughs.
You know what, between this FUBAR administration and the headed-into-the-crapper GOP campaign season, I may very well be driven to drink. Any recommendations? Something Irish, perhaps?
