Vice President Biden took no questions at a campaign appearance in Wisconsin, and he gave no answers either:
Joe “Bite-Me” Biden traveled to Wisconsin yesterday to campaign with far left Progressive Russ Feingold (D-WI). Smokin Joe ordered a custard at a popular custard stand in Glendale during one of their stops. When Biden asked Kopp’s Frozen Custard stand owner how much he owed him, the owner responded:
“Nothing, just lower our taxes.”
An embarrassed Joe Biden ignored him and walked away.
MORE: Eric Blair links Biden’s response — calling the taxpaying custard store manager a “smartass” for asking the Vice President to lower our taxes.
I’m pretty sure this is a “big f***ing deal,” isn’t it?
UPDATED — John Hinderaker on the significance of Kopp the Custard Man:
“UPDATE: Biden thought Kopp was being a “smartass” for suggesting that the Democrats should lower taxes.
Everyone involved laughed it off, but a serious point lingered. A simple way to think about the Democratic Party is, you’re the human being, they’re the tapeworm. Yet they claim a weird sort of parasite’s moral superiority over you: if you point out that they have their hand in your pocket, you’re a “smartass.” The Democratic Party needs to be torn, root and branch, from our public life.”
