« Obama's claim that America has "always been and always will be a AAA country" is half-true at best, but wholly misleading and quite dangerous | Main | Woulda, coulda, shoulda »

"And you tell Boehner that when I was representing Delaware in the Senate, we had — Squirrel!"

I haven't yet finished reading today's WaPo article entitled "Nervous Democrats say President Obama must be bolder on economy" because I was too cracked up by this accompanying official White House photo taken during the debt ceiling negotiations:

'[Vice President Joe] Biden looks out the window as [President] Obama speaks on the phone with House Speaker John Boehner in the Oval Office to discuss the debt limit and deficit reduction.' — Pete Souza / The White House, July 31, 2011

Why they chose that photo to release, I cannot imagine.

Slow Joe Biden's talents are wasted on politics. He should have been in vaudeville.

(Readers are welcome to leave their own alternative — especially better, funnier — captions in the comments to this post.)

"I'm telling you, man, he's been like this for hours. All he does is stare at the sky and say, 'the masters -- they're coming to take me home!'"

"I don't know what's going on, I shot a 48 on the back nine and just couldn't sink a putt to save my life. Oh ya, Joe says he thinks there's a nest of baby birds in that little oak tree in the back."

"I keep telling him that if he's going to do that at least open the damned window. Get housekeeping in here pronto."

Cwazy Unka Joe is a laugh a minute. And GREAT way for The Zero to deter assassins and such idiots. After all, what's scarier than The Zero as a president? The thought of Cwazy Unka Joe as president, of course. Now, that would give ANYONE nightmares. And as for Cwazy Unka Joe? Who'd want to threaten HIS life? No one! In his current position, he's great comic relief from the woes that face citizens. The Secret Service must say prayers of thanks daily for the way he's lightened their load... And, of course, The Zero sleeps more soundly knowing what an effective security device Cwazy Unka Joe is. Heck, he sleeps so soundly that he simply sleep walks through his job, letting TOTUS do all the heavy lifting.
