Pearls, Clutched: Joe Biden Mocked Paul Ryan's Dead Dad By Saying 'Dad' And 'Paul Ryan' In Same Sentence
The Weekly Standard reports!
Vice President Joe Biden invoked Paul Ryan's deceased father to question the Republican vice presidential candidate's values: Blah blah blah, transcript transcript transcript. Ryan's father died when the congressman was 15 years old.
That is pretty low, you guys, acknowledging the existence of Paul Ryan's dead father, and commenting on things that have come out of Paul Ryan's mouth. That is soooo Joe Biden. Why can't Joe Biden be nice to people for just one time in his life?
But what came before that tiny snip? How was Joe Biden making fun of Paul Ryan for having a dead dad? Was he quoting Paul Ryan quoting his dad saying if you're not a part of the solution, you're a part of the problem? (Ryan likes to quote his dad on that one. It was first said by Black Panther leader Eldridge Cleaver.) We guess we will never know, but surely, like every single thing out of Joe Biden's mean old mouth, it was mean, and old.
So what aren't we allowed to mention regarding the sensitive souls of the Romney/Ryan campaign? Let us make a list:
Dads, being or having.
The four-year span when they murdered those Seattle hookers just to watch them die.
That leaves the Salt Lake City Olympics, which Mitt Romney "saved" by building with his own two hands (and $1.2 billion from the federal government). So let's all talk about that for the next three months, yes?
In the meantime, we will just sit here holding our breath until the wingnuts demand an apology from Joe Biden for noting that he also had a father, who also liked to say words. Shouldn't be long.
