Oh, that Joe!

They told me if I voted for Sarah Palin to be Vice President, we'd have an idiot in the job. And they were right:

Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the life of a sitting vice president.

According to a report, while recently attending the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an annual event where powerful politicians and media elite get a chance to cozy up to one another, Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under the old U.S. Naval Observatory, which is now the home of the vice president.

The bunker is believed to be the secure, undisclosed location former Vice President Dick Cheney remained under protection in secret after the 9/11 attacks.


  1. Hey, Obama-Biden voters! Got plenty more now to boast about, huh? I mean, you all must be bursting with pride. What an honor it was to make history in such a way. Yeah, Up-Thumb, gang!

    Oh, damn, I'd laugh if I could find something funny about this, but I don't drink nearly enough.

  2. "Ooh, the bunker is being under the conservatory, is it?"

    "Well Mr. Vice President - that is certainly veryfine looking bunker you are having there - it would be a shame were something to happen to it, would it not, Habib?"

    Vice Presidents from now until the end of America will be thanking 'Smirky' for that extra little feeling of security.

    Then again - that may be a shorter run than I'm giving credit for.

We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
