Over at Powerline.com, they are having a field day over White House Gaffe Machine, Vice President Joe Biden. ("Has Joe Biden Lost His Marbles?") Your VP has called the killing of Osama Bin Laden the most audacious raid of the last 500 years.
It was even more audacious than the D-Day invasion! Then, he made an embarrassing faux pas during a major press conference with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny. Before a roomful of reporters, the Vice President said:
"You know there's an old Irish saying, There's all kinds of old Irish sayings. At least my Grandfather Finnegan, I think he made them up, but it says, may the hinges of our friendship never go rusty.
Well, with these two folks that you're going to meet, if you haven't already, there's no doubt about them staying oiled and lubricated here. Ladies and gentleman.
Now, for you who are not full Irish in this room, lubricating has a different meaning for us all".
Brownchickenbrowwwwncow. Audible gasps filled the White House reception, with embarrassed journalists groaning nervously.
Just in case you don't know what it means to be 'lubricated' in Ireland, it means 'drunk'.
Our friends at Powerline question Crazy Joe's sanity. Your bushy-tailed correspondent has a different theory. I theorize that the Vice President is possessed by a very goofy demon.
