Joe Biden And The Biker Chick

 

Vice-President Biden had an interesting day yesterday:

(AP) SEAMAN, Ohio – Vice President Joe Biden was looking to cozy up with voters as he toured Ohio this weekend, but he did not imagine that an Ohio woman would nearly end up in his lap.

Biden was chatting up customers in the Cruisers Diner in southern Ohio Sunday when he met a group of motorcycle riders in black leather vests and bandanas.

A female group member was watching, and Biden waved her over, telling her, “I know who runs the show.”

The woman had no place to sit, so Biden pulled a chair in front of himself and pulled her nearly into his lap.

The two gentlemen sitting with the Vice-President do not seem amused.

  2. If he wasn’t such a paid shill for the entertainment lobby, Joe would be great.

    This totally balances out that Romney is going to attack Iran if he’s elected.

    That lap part is stupid. His legs and lap are separated from her by the backrest of the chair she’s in and about half-a-foot of air. Biden is in the booth seating with 3 bikers, one mostly obscured by the woman, and he’s leaning forward.

    If nobody in or around the White House is embarrassed by the guy now, what else are they not paying attention to?

    @Sheila: You may be interested in the other picture that was posted of the Shadowmen Social Club members with VP Biden.

    I like having a VP who isn’t a completely risk-averse stuffed shirt.

    Well that one’s not creepy. The other one is just weird.

    Well, stick to pictures of Romney. You will never have to worry about seeing him having fun with ordinary people.

    One of the reasons I have always liked Biden is he seems like someone who remembers his working class roots & he knows how to have a good time.

    This pic says it all, Biden wants more attention. He doesn’t get enough on the campaign trail.
