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.

Couple few weeks ago, your Wonkette (me) ended up in the ER with chest pains because some dick 40-millionaire decided to sue us. It was a very stupid day!

But God loves your Wonkette best, because of our excellence in mommyblogging and jabbing bad people in the eye with this here pointy stick. And so the ACLU of West Virginia has agreed to represent us pro boner-like, for love and America and so can you.

Perhaps you are like us, and two years ago rushed to send the ACLU some canned clams to help it in its fight against every extremely crazy thing Steve Bannon was doing. And then you reupped a year later. And then the second year, well ... maybe that just hit at a time you were a little tight, or had to fix the water heater, or didn't feel like getting out your checkbook and a stamp.

If you are so moved, please join Wonkette in reupping with the national org today (and if you are able, to make it a monthly), as well as giving a one-time gift to the West Virginia chapter, since they don't seem to have a recurring option on their site.

And as always, don't forget that we, Wonkette, are ad-free, grant-free, investor-free, and funded ENTIRELY by YOU. That's staff salaries, freelancers, health care, servers, and hairbows for the baby, who frankly has a problem. The widget below funds US (not the ACLU, don't have a confuse), and we'd thank you kindly to follow the instructions if'n you haven't already.

1. Pick "just once" or "monthly."

2. Pick an amount, like say "all of the money."

3. Click "paypal" if you are paypal or "stripe" if you are not paypal.

4. MONEY.

5. Carry on with your day, and with new posts below!

Welcome to another edition of Yr Sunday Nice Things feature, where we take a break from the daily craziness so we can decompress for a little while. Today, we're going to relax with the ineffable mental calm that comes from an oddly rectangular English cow. It's really beautiful to see what can happen when people all over the internet come together to collaborate on a little art project. We call it...
