“I hope to God this Adderall lasts the full 90 minutes”
Well if politics don’t end up working out for ol’ Joe after Nov 6th, he would always make a great Joker in the next Batman flick…
pre-debate, ol’ joe must be thinking, “oh boy, I am goonna REALLY have my base loving THIS angry, white, old, guy…”!
post-debate, ol’ joe must be thinking, “ah ohh, the RTs made no mention of me even SMILING during the debate”. Sheesh, didn’t those folks even watch? I’m worried now, because if those type of folks ignore my antics of last night….must mean they don’t want to emphasize them….must mean they don’t think it played well in Peoria…which is also in Kentucky, ya know”!
“What would you expect out of a pig but a grunt?”
An old Irish saying.
Jeez! I can’t wait until SNL and Jon Stewart get to lampoon that lie. I can just see it now!
It’s no fun making fun of the senile. I spend most of my days with old folks and Biden displays the unfiltered, uncontrolled aberrant behavior typical of seniors with early dementia. They always interupt because they know they can’t respond to even pedestrian dialogue.
If I thought Biden was capable of controlling his behavior, I would comment. But he is just a sad spectacle who will go down as the rudest, most unhinged debator of all time.
I rememeber the Munsters. What a fun show that was! Pretty cool that Eddie is standing right beside me.
Make that remember.
this smile thing works for the boss, now if i point my finger @ someone & give a “shout out” i’ll be presidential
Is that a rhetorical question? The empty bubble is quite accurate!
“Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.”
3 letter word J O B S
Joe’s the man!
Wonder how he’d look in leather and chains handcuffed to Suzie;s bedpost?
“Oh, to be young, dumb, and full of…..crap.”
Well, if I were a misogynist, racist, tax evading, liar, who did everything in his power to subjugate women and the poor; who believed an illiterate felon (Joseph Smith) translated his own bible with “Magic Glasses” in the nineteenth century in a seventeenth century English dialect from a “golden bible” purportedly written in Hebrew… with confidence I could say, I wouldn’t like me neither. If only, John Stuart Mill, were here to see this!
“I hope they get Craig T. Nelson to play me in my movie biography”
“Oh God give me strength not to faceplant this punk through the table”
Biden: Hey Paul Knock Knock…
Ryan: Who’s there Joe?
Biden: An interrupting Vice President.
Ryan: An interru…. Biden: HA HA HA You Can’t Talk You Can’t Talk!
I hope I don’t completely screw this up like I’ve done on most of my other speeches…remember, it is the 21st century and my boss is a communist.
“I can’t believe they agreed to this moderator when Barrie was at her wedding, this is 2 against 1 and I really need the help!”
If I could be in a Netflix commercial… Mr. Biden, if you can’t hug with nuclear arms what can you do with them? Laugh at them.
That would be cool.
A brawny young lad name of Ryan
Had one special skill-that was lyin’
And it’s now come to pass
That he’s grabbin’ for his ass
Cause the swill that he sells we’re not buyin’
Thoughts of Joe biden while listening to Paul Ryan 10/11/2012
@#20 Define Communist.
I ate some cheese last week in Wisconsin..
can u get a whiff of what kind it was sonny?
“Dear Lord, forgive me for the a$$-whooping I am about to deliver.”
“@#20 Define Communist.”
communist (n): 1. Anybody who’s not a warmed-over John Bircher now masquerading as a Tea Partyer.
“Interrupted my friend here 82 times. And that’s not even counting those from the moderator.”
ol’ joe was thinking to himself during the entire 90 minutes…,
“conservatives think we libs are disengenuous, and, stupid! Well, tonight, I’m gonna show’em ALL that libs AREN’T disengenuous about our stupidity”!
I think I’ve uncovered pammala:
“For a black guy, obama sure is well-spoken and clean. I mean everything I say. Romney does too.”
I hope this diaper has 90 minutes left in it.
Joe would be thinking:
“Hmmm, Dan has the rules on the ‘Caption This’ threads to not insult other commenters here by name and also to only post possible captions for the balloons. Two clearly violated these and I know Dan will be a stand up guy and revoke their comments accordingly.”
What a dummy! He doesn’t even know the old poker players tell. When a player gulps down water( or a drink) before making his bet he’s bluffing ( or in this case lying). I can read him like a dime novel.

You know, I heard this thing about Ryan and his water gulping in a convenience store this evening. I hadn’t even noticed. It’s a meme that seems to be catching fire though.
No question that Biden totally smoked him, btw.
“There was a young punk from Nantucket…”
Joe says: “You can call it cheese till your eyes bug out..
But the Politically Scientific and point of fact term
“No question that Biden totally smoked him, btw.”
Where Biden went to debate school:
Don’t fret, John W. 92% of the Fox News faithful think Ryan won the debate.
Fox news faithful would take Rush Limbaugh
in a fight against Jesus.
barry soetoro was raised with communist parents and then they had him ‘mentored’ by another one, all his friends in college were either communists or marxists or socialists so therefore…he proves it daily what he is
“Don’t fret, John W. 92% of the Fox News faithful think Ryan won the debate.

typical libbie com violent comment..neither one would submit to your kind of reactions like fighting
39.”Don’t fret, John W. 92% of the Fox News faithful think Ryan won the debate.”
Along with a slimmer majority of the CNN faithful.
“Winning” a debate is such a subjective thing these days. The overwhelming majority of people who watch the debates know who they’re voting for and just watch to be entertained. Substantive debating died off a long time ago.
John W…u are so right..
NPR yesterday was revisiting the Reagan debate vs Mondale in 84..
Reagan had come under some criticism about his failing mental processes
..he was 73.
He successfully turned it on Mondale when asked about being too old
to be elected president..with the famous quip..”I’m not going to exploit
for political purposes my opponents youth and inexperience.”
It was a great line someone else likely wrote and fed to him..but he was an actor ..and his timing was dead on the mark. Reagan won in a landslide.
…But most of us know especially in hindsight that Don Henley was right when he referred to the man as “The tired old man they elected king”
…be careful to bank our next 4 years on a few quips , zingers , and sound bytes played until November…Or we will continue to operate our grand experiment like a game show.
“NPR yesterday was revisiting the Reagan debate vs Mondale in 84..”
That was the first debate that came to mind, actually.
Here’s a 1987 video of Biden. He was an asshat then as now. In this clip, a journalist asked him where he went to law school and where in his class he finished. Listen to his classy response. Some people never change.
#33 Biden: Hmm, I wonder why MMM hasn’t called for Dan to remove pammalamadingdong’s non-caption posts?
hey Suzie, yep, that video is spot on…he was a jerk then, and, he’s still a jerk.
@#27, Dan Casey, that is what I figured. It is like defining a religion. It is what ever the user wants it to be at that very moment.
I just watched a video of a woman who called, Obama, a communist. She couldn’t define what a communist was. http://www.opposingviews.com/i/politics/2012-election/video-woman-calls-pres-obama-communist-cant-say-why
“I’m not as think as you drunk I am.”
Suzie, that was an interesting video clip. What a classless response from Biden.
The reporter said: “With the people we have elected to office in recent years, I think that we have to question their credentials very solidly”. Unreal! Who? Reagan?! I wonder what that same reporter thought four years ago about the candidate to which Biden lost in the primary? What a serious qualification deficit that was! Or the Obama/Biden ticket beating John McCain? Yeah, we should question credentials, but the general public couldn’t care less!
i think if the main stream media better done their job by pressing a bit on the “credentials” aspect of reviewing the candidates, we might have a different slate of candidates….because the general public will have seen what’s what. However, you could certainly be right, the public might not care.
joe biden? Slime.
We had this one, three other caption contests, and an election contest that fell by the wayside. These used to be fun. What happened?

Metro Columnist Dan Casey knows a little bit about a lot of things but not a heck of a lot about most things. That doesn't keep him from writing about them, however. So keep him honest!
He welcomes your rants, raves and considered opinions, so long as the language is civil (i.e. no four-letter words). He'll read all your posts and may or may not respond.
