    Where did the Dems find this moron? :rolleyes: I hope they order a few more copies before they destroy the moulds! :D

    The Daily Caller: Biden on cheerleaders: ‘The stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind’

    According to a pool report from Biden’s stop at Newport High School in Newport, N.H., ...

    ‘Cheerleaders,’ a group of girls shouted.”

    “Guess what, the cheerleaders in college are the best athletes in college,” Biden said. “You think, I’m joking, they’re almost all gymnasts, the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind.”
  2. Honestly, this was so funny it made me like him just a little bit. (Not very much, just a little.)

    It took me a while to quit laughing.

    But I've never liked him.

    "Hard wood, you know, like my head"

    this is what we have as vice president of the united States. If that ain't writing on the wall, I don't know what is....

    He's pretty much on target.

    And his wife said "I've seen Joe up close" as she opens her arms wide...
    They're just a laugh a minute.

    OK, folks. I don't see how Biden's words reflect poorly on him or his wife.

    I don't like the man's politics, but I'm not willing to pillory him or his wife over these innocent gaffs. There was a time when people were taught by their mentors and parents never to acknowledge such gaffs, because doing so brought nothing positive to a discussion.

    I know it's old fashioned, but I wouldn't mind going back to this standard. The gaffs are funny, but nothing to castigate anyone over.

    the sexual innuendos are neither here nor there. but they are a pattern of pure goofiness exhibited by that man. No sane person would want him anywhere near the nuclear button.

    Biden exists purely for our entertainment. He serves no other useful purpose.

    A lot of decent folks come across as goofy. They just aren't used to thinking in terms of sexual innuendo. When they were newlyweds a friend of mines husband named their white cat "Splooge." He thought it was uproariously funny to hear his wife calling through the neighborhood for their frequently missing free range cat. When the term was fully explained to her she stopped just short of peeling him like a grape and rolling him in salt. (I would not have shown her restraint.)

    The marriage has been going strong for about 25 years. She's a better person than I am.

    Many years ago my daughter and I were shopping and I see this t-shirt of a guy on a riding lawnmower and it says "Ride a big Johnson". Well, my last name is Johnson and I thought the t-shirt was cute so I bought it. It wasn't until we were out of the store that my daughter informed me about the double meaning of the word Johnson. I asked her why she didn't stop me from buying it - well, apparently she thought it was funny. Needless to say that t-shirt never saw the light of day. Go ahead and laugh - I did eventually......

    If a person has a once in a great while slip of the tongue then I think we all kinda just let it go but with Biden it happens to often. I see no problem of having a little fun on his behalf because of things he says.

    What next the PC Cops chasing us down for laughing at a slip of a phrase?

    I cast no stones here -- the whole thing whooshed over my head until I saw all of your comments. :oops:

    However -- do you suppose the Romney quote about how dangerous it is that airplane windows don't roll down is true?

    I'm sure there are plenty of people who are that naive. A bit of wind chill at 30,000' and 550 miles/hour would change his mind.

    “I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”

    Cockpit crew have a separate oxygen system and actually use it quite often. Odds are that the pilot & copilot were wearing their oxygen masks throughout the incident just in case.

    The oxygen system in the passenger cabin mainly is designed to keep you alive while plane dives to an altitude where you can breathe again. If there were really a fire in the cabin, oxygen or a draft from outside would feed the flames. Would he also like a parachute?

    Actually his thinking isn't far wrong. Some aircraft have a means of smoke removal that requires opening certain areas of an airplane, one an exit for the smoke and an entrance for fresh air. The ram effect moves the smoke out. This would be done while the crew is wearing a smoke mask and on O2 but toxic fumes from an electronic fire can easily incapacitate a person.
