Argghhh! is running a caption contest for a photo showing Joe Biden speaking to a group enrolled in the Navy SEALS program. When you see the picture, you’ll understand why so many of the proposed captions involve the size of a gun or some other, more personal weapon. I’m no good at manufacturing quips, so I didn’t even make a stab at this one.
Captions aside, what I did find amusing about the picture is the fact that, with one exception, every one of the men listening to Biden bloviate (I’m assuming Biden was bloviating, ’cause that’s his standard MO), looks either blank, bored or befuddled — all of which are appropriate responses to bloviating. The only guy without that look is in the middle of the second row and, to be honest, he looks as if he’s trying to choke back a giggle — which is, of course, the other appropriate response to a Biden-esque speaker.
I’m still waiting for the MSM to hop on board the “sneer at the VP ’cause he’s an idiot” bandwagon, a wagon they rode with vigor during the Quayle years. I just can’t seem to figure out why the MSM is being so coy and retiring this time around. (That last statement, obviously, is sarcastic. If I were in an old movie, I’d be the dumb blond who is unable to understand eventhe simplest concept.)
