Original Thoughts From Joe Biden

Hi, this is Brad Smilo for Paco World News. I’m here with Senator Joseph Biden, and, Senator, first, let me congratulate you on the Democratic nomination for VP.

Biden: It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done.

Brad: Senator, the Republicans didn’t waste any time in digging up the old plagiarism charges. How do you plan to deal with that issue?

Biden: I shall fight on the beaches, I shall fight on the landing grounds, I shall fight in the fields and in the streets; I shall never surrender.

Brad: So, you’re saying that the charge is basically irrelevant?

Biden: It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Brad: Do you plan on adopting the same aggressive tactics in dealing with your Republican critics? Does that pose some risk, do you think?

Biden: In revenges men look not at the greatness of the evil past, but the greatness of the good to follow.

Brad: Senator Biden, what do you say to those Clinton supporters who are threatening to bolt the party?

Biden: There are voters now-a-bed who shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks that fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

Brad: Um, I think St. Crispin’s Day is actually in October, Senator.

Biden: A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, Brad.

Brad: Ok, Senator, you know you’ll be getting ribbed about it; what’s with the hair plugs?

Biden: A large head of hair makes the handsome more graceful and the ugly more terrible.

Brad: Thank you, Senator Biden. Good night and good luck.

Biden: Good night, Brad, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

There used to be a bit someone did, where interview questions were asked & answers were snippets of songs...wish I could remember more but this made me think of it & I may still be laughing when I wake up in the morning!

I'd like to vote this one as your Best Post of the Summer, Paco (followed closely by the one with my Minnesota family in it). Thank you!

The only quote missing is the one about killing all the lawyers.

Ah, yes! The Obiden ticket is full of promise....the promise of an easy target for lefty-mocking. Let's just hope the target is around a couple of months, not four years!

I didn't invent this one.

We have the Obama And Biden ticket. Has a certain ring to it; nudges a few thought cells.
