Joe Biden Is An Idiot

biden_handsupToo strong of a headline?  I don’t think so. 

In an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today Show, VP Biden remarked that he has advised his family to stay off planes and subways for fear of contracting the Swine FluMexican Flu.  Really?  If Dick Cheney would have said something like this the ridiculous coverage of this new strain of flu would have paled in comparison.  Why does this colossal boob get away with this idiotic behavior.  I already know the truth that the MSM is not interested in making it a real issue.



Another colossal Idiot (I just love the word colossal), Robert Gibbs, tries to explain what VP Biden “meant” to do:

Robert Gibbs stated in his press conference that “I think what the Vice President meant to say…”.  I think old Joe is pretty clear in his statements.  He has no censoring mechanism to stop him from staying stupid things.  Again, if this happened during the last 8 years, and it did from time to time, it would have been front page top of the fold news.  As it is we’ll have to rely on bloggers and Fox News to give us the real poop and hype these gaffs. 

Of course, this is just my opinion

How About a Side of Swine Flu With Your Meal?

pig_funnyIt seems that this weeks  epidemic that will kill us all is the Swine Flu.  After a while we just get numb to all the cry wolf mentality from the government and the news media.   Is the Swine Flu really a problem here in the United  States?

According to the CDC nearly 36,000 people die each year from influenza related complications.  As of today, 40 people have gotten sick from the Swine Flu in the U.S.  40 People!!!  All this for 40 people getting sick?

Bottom line is that the people that have died live in a third world country (Mexico) and do not have the immunity and medical care that we enjoy in this country.  I’m curious if those from Mexico are being stopped and tested.  It’s surely not happening at the border crossings as they continue to flood into our country.  The Great Illuminator has a great post on this subject.

I wonder what will be next.  I suppose anything to take attention away from the dismal performance in the first 100 days of the Obama administration. 

Now where’s my pork steak?

Of course, that is just my opinion.
