Stay Classy, Joe

The Vice President of the United States consoles Chris Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods who died in the attack on our consulate in Benghazi:

Mr Woods last week told Glenn Beck that he was disappointed by his meeting with senior officials at the event marking the return of the dead men's bodies.

He said that Biden had acted inappropriately, asking the Woods family in a 'loud and boisterous' tone, 'Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?' Mr Woods asked, 'Are these the words of someone who is sorry?'

Actually, we'd have to say, "Yes - Biden is about as sorry as it gets."

Cass, thanks for sharing your voice with us again; I have been enjoying your writings since you reengaged without expressing my thanks and appreciation--so here it is.

I am guessing Biden never served in the military; I often think this administration is plagued by the unholy trinity of character faults: clueless, classless and graceless.

Thanks for the kind words, Rick :)

And for reading.

Doesn't Biden sort of remind you of a hyperactive Lyndon Johnson?


Not in my name.

"Why, actually, sir, they are not only as large as cue balls, they are bigger than Obama's and Hillary's...combined."

Wow, classless and insensitive ... reminds me of the book No Easy Day where the author refers to Biden: "Biden's "lame jokes that no one got (He seemed like a nice guy, but he reminded me of someone's drunken uncle at Christmas dinner)"

BTW, how did the Cass family fare in hurricane? We lost power for a few hours, but otherwise escaped unscathed.

"Why, actually, sir, they are not only as large as cue balls, they are bigger than Obama's and Hillary's...combined."

But are they bigger than the First Wookie's? And do they clank?
Inquiring minds (with thumbs).....yada yada yada

The storm was pretty mild where we are - lots of noisy wind and driving rain, but no real damage (at least here).

Our power lines are below ground - out on the main road they are above ground, so the lights flickered when the wind was at its worst but we never lost power.

"Yeah, we all sat in the Situation Room watching your son on that roof for hours and hours while he asked for help that never came. He never quit firing. We were cheering and high-fiving him for hours. What a guy. We'll never forget the show he put on for us. You must be an awfully proud dad."

This is Biden's attempt to portray a macho man, about as successful as a drunken cross-dresser or a talentless actor trying to portray someone of the opposite sex.

"...about as successful as a drunken cross-dresser..."

Out! Out damned spot!

Although, one has to admit, that one was pretty successful....

Joe Biden is reason enough to include Barack Obama's continued good health in your daily prayers.
