I saw this on the blog run by my friends Ben and Megan, and I had to post it in my blog as well.  This is seriously hilarious!

In a blog entry on abcnews.com, Alcee Hastings, a Democratic Congressman from Florida, is quoted as saying what is perhaps the most idiotic thing of this entire election season.  Maybe the most idiotic thing of this entire decade.  What is his quote?  Well, here you go:

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention.  Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

And if that wasn’t enough, he went on to say things like this:

“Just like Jews, blacks care about affordable health care, energy independence, and the separation of church and state, and just like blacks, Jews care about equal pay for equal work, investment in alternative energy, and a woman’s right to choose.”

When questioned about Hastings’s criticism, realizing that such a statement was nothing short of disastrous for Democrats and could pretty much do nothing but backfire, Maria Comella, the spokeswoman for Sarah Palin, simply stated, “We’re taking a pass.”

I, for one, am very glad that Barack Obama chose Joe Biden as his vice presidential running mate.  This guy is definitely the comic relief of this whole election process (though, admittedly, some of his gaffes aren’t that funny).  Let’s take a look at some of the fun we’ve had with “Anvil Joe” (as some have dubbed him) thus far.

Actually, let’s get some of the not-so-funny mistakes out of the way.  Then we can have some fun.

  • In an article titled Biden, Obama helped keep ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ alive, we are shown the hypocritical side of Biden (and Obama, for that matter).  Almost immediately after Sarah Palin’s VP nomination was announced, both Obama and Biden started harping on and on about how she had originally supported the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere” in Alaska.  They say she supported it before she opposed it.  And this is true.  She did support the earmark while she a gubernatorial candidate, but after becoming governor, she realized it had become a monstrosity and a horrible waste of taxpayer dollars, so she told them, “Thanks, but no thanks,” and that was it.  But Obama and Biden wouldn’t let it go.  Biden has been especially fierce in his criticism of her.  Now, we come to find out that Obama and Biden both voted to keep the “Bridge to Nowhere” project alive on two different occasions.  A case of the pot calling the kettle black?  Indeed, it is.  Though, with liberals now trying to say that if Obama loses it will be because of racism, I will probably get in trouble for saying that.  That’s how ridiculous things have gotten lately.  Anyway, I digress.  The article says:

    Both Biden and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama voted to kill a Senate amendment that would have diverted federal funding for the bridge to repair a Louisiana span badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Senate records show.

    So not only did they vote to keep the “Bridge to Nowhere” earmark alive on the transportation bill,  they did so at the expense of funds that would have been used to repair a bridge that was badly damaged during Hurricane Katrina.  And Democrats have tried to say that President Bush didn’t care about those hit by the hurricane.  Also, when all was said and done, Obama and Biden both voted for the final transportation bill, which included the $223 million earmark for the Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere” (which Governor Palin then rejected).

  • This one is decidedly the least funny of all the stupid things Biden has said.  In an article titled 1972 crash still haunts driver’s family, Delaware Online tells how Biden, on more than one occasion over the years, has told the story about how a drunk driver struck his wife’s car, killing her and their infant daughter and badly injuring their two sons.  The article then goes on to point out that the man who hit them was never accused of nor charged for being drunk.  The actual recorded facts of the case do not line up with Biden’s story.  And to make matters worse, the driver who hit them is now also dead and cannot even defend himself.  The man’s family, still grief-stricken by his death, has had to also listen to his name being slandered all across the nation.  Biden’s spokesperson has since said that Biden accepts the rumors about the man’s insobriety being false, but that still doesn’t explain why he ever said the man was drunk in the first place.  I understand that the whole incident was painful for him, but to lie and slander another person is never acceptable.

Ok, and now for the funnier stuff.

  • Biden tells Missouri State Senator, Chuck Graham, a paraplegic, to stand up:
  • Biden tells crowd that Hillary would probably have been a better VP choice than him:
  • Biden, during the primaries, also gave us his thoughts on Obama and McCain:
  • Help me out, Joe.  What is the name of the man at the top of your ticket?
  • FDR was not president during the Great Depression, so it also stands to reason that he did not address the nation on television when the stock market crashed.
  • Biden on the growth of Delaware’s Indian population and 7-Eleven:

The election is still more than a month away.  Stay tuned.  I’m sure there will be plenty more where all of that came from.
