Joe Biden helped kick off Seth Meyers’ tenure as host of NBC’s Late Night with a joke about the 2016 presidential race.

“Well, you know, I was planning on making a major announcement tonight, but I decided tonight’s your night,” joked Biden when Meyers asked him about his 2016 plans. “So I hope you’ll invite me back.”

Meyers then asked his other guest, Amy Poehler, about her plans for two years from now.

“I’m gonna run for president,” the Parks and Recreation star quipped.


The historical record does not reflect well on Biden’s foreign policy judgment:

BOB GATES: It started with voting against assistance to Vietnam, the assistance package at the end of Vietnam War that basically left the South Vietnamese government high and dry. I think he said with the fall of the Shah that this “represented progress towards human rights in Iran” when the Ayatollah took over. He voted against almost every element of the Reagan defense buildup, the B-1, the B-2, the MX missile. [He] opposed Reagan’s approach to trying to deal with the Soviet Union. [He] voted against the first Gulf War. Those are a few examples.


Newsflash: Biden doesn't make jokes; Biden is a joke.  This is the Democrats alternative to Sarah Palin.  Biden should get a sex change.  At least he could play a dumb blonde.
