Being a smartass is better than the alternative, Mr. Vice President

If a dumbass calls you a smartass, doesn’t that cancel out?

Let that be a lesson to you, America: Work hard, play by the rules, pay your taxes, and STFU. Want to keep more of the money you’ve rightfully earned? Your leaders don’t want to hear about it.

P.S. That said, the custard guy miscalculated a bit. He should have told Biden the price, and when Biden said, “Wow, you sure charge a lot,” then the reply would be, “Well, you could always lower my taxes…” Not that BFD Biden would’ve gotten the point, or any other point.

P.P.S. Ol’ Joe had quite a quotable weekend: “There’s no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession.” Yes We Can(not do any of the stuff we said we were going to do)!

    You just don’t understand.

    Joe Biden would have had this absolutely killer response to the custard shop owner, if only a custard shop owner had made a smartass comment to Neil Kinnock.

    Biden was trying to channel his inner John Wayne and accidentally channelled his inner Boss Hog.

    I just had a mental image of Biden saying to Treacher, “Yeah, well double dumbass on you!” But then, Joe has probably never seen Star Trek IV.

    Let’s face it, Plugs is the best assassination-prevention plan that any president’s ever come up with. “Shoot me, and hey presto…THIS fool is in charge!”

    Smart ass? No, I think the guy was as serious as a brain aneurysm.

    “Let them eat cake” – only without the hoop skirt and powdered wig. Which, I’m thinking, just may be something Plugs might want to consider a big effin deal, to help him stand out in a crowd, and such. Beats a football helmet, which the National Safety Council should probably recommend whenever Mr. Vice President is allowed to wander around in public.
