The Vice President has brought the fireside chat into the 21st century. In a new audio series, “Being Biden,” the Vice President will, according to the White House, “tell the story behind a photo – of where he was, why it matters to him, and how the experience fits into the broader narrative of this Administration.” After the first segment, one can only hope these sneak peeks will become regular events.

In “Vol. 1: The Sportsman’s Ethic,” Biden explains a picture of him serving bread rolls at the Whitehall Neck Sportsman Club’s Wild Game Dinner. Biden says he has attended the dinner every year for the past thirty at the Leipsic, Del., Volunteer Fire Hall, and then delves into the importance of the Second Amendment, comments on the “ethic” of the hunters (they “demand responsibility” and “help those in the community who are in need”), and commends the Senate for deliberating gun-control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook mass shooting. What is remarkable is that the famously voluble vice president keeps the story under three minutes (although at around the 1:23 mark, it sounds like they cut him off). For those interested in “Being Biden,” click here.

Funny how incredibly biased the media are. If a conservative like say GW Bush or Sara Palin or fillin the blank any conservative they are ridiculed 24/7 by the liberal media and it is on constant loop on ABC/CBS ABC etc. But if some buffoon like say Biden says something dumb( which happens a lot( the media cover for him and just laugh and say " oh..that silly Biden..it's just Biden being Biden"

Sarah Palin is an angry imbecile.  Joe Biden or George Bush are very gaffe prone but they're far from stupid, and frankly I would love to chill out and have a beer with either one of them.  I've seen GWB speak after he left office, and let me tell you something that man is smart as a whip and absolutely hysterical when he doesn't have to follow a prepared script.

Funny how no one, including Biden himself takes him seriously. We know he gaffs. We know he says dumb stuff. He knows it.

Righties are actually serious about the dumb shit people like Sarah Palin says. She's serious about them.

Biden being Biden means something silly. Sarah being Sarah is meant to be a serious policy pov.

@MrObvious @ilikechips If we all know Biden is a joke, why did Obama the Incompetent pick him? It seems to me that that should have disqualified Obama as a presidential candidate. Unfortunately, the media spent very little time informing younger voters about Biden's history of lying and plagiarism.
