Pearls, Clutched: Joe Biden Mocked Paul Ryan's Dead Dad By Saying 'Dad' And 'Paul Ryan' In Same Sentence

News


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:

Tax returns.

Business experience.

Medicare.

Granny-starving.

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.

Can we just say that when Fox idiot Maria Bartiromo sounds like the sane person in a situation, that is a worrisome situation? That is what happened when Donald Trump -- who's just had a fantastic Infrastructure Week, assuming it is Infrastructure Week, and we always do -- sat down for what was supposed to be an easy breezy "You're the best!"/"No YOU are, Mister President!" interview with his beloved Fox pals.

Instead Maria Bartiromo had to ask the question on everybody's mind, which is WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU OH MY GOD, or, more clearly, is there a reason you have spent this entire week of your presidency picking a fight with a dead guy, who somehow seems to be winning that fight, because you are literally so stupid and incompetent you LOSE FIGHTS TO DEAD GUYS?

She said it nicer than that, though.

Last fall, after Wisconsin voters rejected Gov. Scott Walker's reelection bid and chose Democrat Tony Evers instead, Republicans in the state legislature got very busy doing anything they could to limit the power of the incoming governor and the new Democratic attorney general, Josh Kaul. Hey, voters may have chosen Evers, but that didn't mean Rs had to let Democrats actually govern, now did it? As Republican state House Speaker Robin Vos rather notoriously said at the time, the lege had to act because "We are going to have a very liberal governor who is going to enact policies that are in direct contrast to what many of us believe in." So in a two day "extraordinary session," the Republicans shifted power from the executive branch and gave those powers to the legislature, which conveniently remained in Republican control thanks to gerrymandering. Scott Walker signed the bills and then began his career as an idiot on Twitter.

Yesterday, a Wisconsin judge found the entire lame duck session violated the state constitution, and invalidated the laws it passed. Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess said in his decision the Wisconsin constitution is quite specific about when the legislature can meet, and nope, the "extraordinary session" didn't meet the constitutional requirements, so sorry guys, you didn't follow the rules and your laws ARE MOOT.

The Associated Press lawsplains the constitutional neener-neener:
