Say it ain't so, Joe! VP flubs rally cry



Quote:
The Giants are going all the way!

That sentiment would draw cheers in San Francisco during the baseball season, but when it was shouted by Vice President Joe Biden during a campaign event Wednesday it drew jeers from the crowd.

The vice president, who is well known for his gaffes, mixed up the San Francisco baseball and football teams when trying to cheerlead for the 49ers before their playoff game showdown Sunday against the New York Giants.

Biden, speaking at an event in the Financial District in support of President Barack Obama’s re-election, told supporters that “the Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.”

When the comment drew boos from the crowd, Biden quickly apologized, saying he was used to talking about the San Francisco Giants’ baseball victories.
And there are people actually rooting for four more years of this...

Yup, we all want Obama re-elected because of Joe Biden's goofy moments. .

You have figured us out, the jig is up.

You really don't want to get into that competition...

I count Joe and his "flubs" in the "negative" column, but let's not delude ourselves on who the record holders are.

I don't want them in office, but whether or not anyone in any office knows which team is baseball and which is football and which game is played at the Super Bowl is pretty ****ing insignificant.

All jokes aside, at least no one has since been mistaken for a quail and had their face shot off recently.
