Prepare for some pissing and moaning, probably, over Old Handsome Joe Biden just being Old Handsome Joe Biden again: Thursday, at a Harvard event, His Handsomeness said a swear, kinda-sorta:


“Isn’t it a bitch, I mean … that vice president thing?” Biden joked, as the audience reportedly erupted with laughter. ”I’m joking. I’m joking. I’m joking. The best decision I ever made.”

All of which leads one to wonder, once more, what Old Handsome Joe Biden has against dogs, like that time he just cold killed one. (OK, his motorcade did. Still, he's a monster.)

Talking Points Memo provided this note, by way of context:

Biden is known for often making verbal gaffes, perhaps his most famous coming when he was caught on an open mic telling President Obama that passage of the Affordable Care Act was a "big fucking deal." Biden later said he was "embarrassed as hell" about it.

Is that a "gaffe," even? A gaffe is saying something embarrassingly wrong, like when Gerald Ford said there was "no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe." But passing the ACA really was a big fucking deal. Guys, if you're going to talk about Biden gaffes, at least go with his real gaffes, like that weird "Shylock" line a few weeks back.

Also, sorry, OHJB -- you're going to have to go a long way to reach the stratosphere of slams on your own job. The best, of course, still belongs to John Nance Garner, FDR's first veep, who today is known for exactly one thing, which was calling the vice-presidency "not worth a bucket of warm piss" -- often toned down for the more easily upset as "warm spit" (either bucket can give you Ebola, though).

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!

Every so often on this here internet, we get a hate read that is so perfect, that so aptly encapsulates a particular form of douchebaggery that we all must collectively gasp at it's awfulness and revel in the general repulsiveness of the arrogant human being so lacking in self-awareness that they actually thought it would be a good idea to write such a thing. Today, I bring you such a hate read -- Matthew Binder's A Glimpse Into the Ideological Monoculture of Literary New York.

And yes, it's actually worse than it sounds, if that is possible.
