When Joe Biden calls you smart, you know you’re still breathing

The vice president is a talker, and then some. But in a new interview with GQ, he managed some gems, even for Joe Biden.

For instance, reporter Lisa DePaulo pressed Biden repeatedly on why President Obama isn’t connecting with the American public and is instead viewed as professorial and aloof. “So what is it?” asked DePaulo.

“I think what it is, is he’s so brilliant. He is an intellectual,” Biden said.

By way of analogy, Biden calling Obama brilliant is much like a goldfish calling… well, calling Obama brilliant.

No, I take that back. We all remember how instrumental Joe was to the Beer Summit…
