Don't tell "Tax and Spend" Joe to lower your taxes!
[VIDEO AT SITE]
VP Biden walks into a frozen custard shop in Wisconsin Friday. Full story in the L.A. Times Top of the Ticket blog:
After Biden gets his custard, he asks the store manager how much he owes him.
Lower our taxes and well call it even, the manager replied.
Biden didnt acknowledge that. Refusing to even look at him, Biden turned and....
...walked away from the manager, appearing to just blow him off.
Its odd that Biden didnt have something to say because politicians get hit on this all the time. Republican or Democrat, people always tell elected officials they want their taxes lowered.
You would expect a God love ya, were doin everything we can to get the economy jump-started again.
A few minutes later, Biden is caught on video again telling the manager: Why dont you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time? Say something nice.

Joe Biden....The gift that keeps on giving....
Hey Joe, Bite Me.
Joe, trust me when I tell you, it is better to be a smart a** than it is a dumb a**
I would have charged him double for his stupid ice cream.
Outrageous! The uppity serf was disrespectful to his royal superior, for whom he labors. Lord Biden the Benevolent could have crushed him with a tax audit or worse but kindly settled instead for a gentle, profane slap down.
Absloute arrogance from the Regime.
Absloute arrogance from the Regime.
ny times thurmond vs KKK byrd...
This guy missed a perfect opportunity to launch into a profanity-laced tirade directed toward Biden that would make Ricky from Trailer Park Boys blush....hopefully the next guy to get the opportunity won’t pass...
I bet he was the class dork.
He said it was not meant to be a political statement, just the way most of the folks he knows feels about taxes.
I wish he would have been asked how business has picked up.
Quite a few FReepers were going to go and order gift cards from him.
If they had some stores here in Jersey, I would buy one myself.
He really ought to create an ice cream float in his honor, something like "The Shakedown Float" all fizz and no ice cream.
What the manager said was quite nice actually. Probably a lot nice than what he was thinking.
Yep. I would reckon it takes a long time to reach the level of Dorkdom that Plugs has achieved. It had to start early on, perhaps before birth....
I would rather be a smart ass instead of a dumb ass like Biden.
It is precisely his Level of Dorkdom that qualifies Plugs to be 0’s Walking Insurance Policy.
The guy has more class than our VP!
Thin-skinned bunch of little crybabies, aren’t they? As the pressure builds, we’re seeing more of this.
LOL! Yep. Obamalamadingdong's insurance policy runs deep, too. Pelousy is behind Biden and until last night Sheets was behind Pelousy. Hillary would have been after Sheets. That's a deep bench if you axe me.....
This ice cream guy is nicer than I’d have been....I’d have pulled a few of Joe’s hair plugs out, and probably be in jail now.....
Bill Engvall’s “dork-fish” comes to mind....
Why yes, Joe, I do believe that I have more smarts in my ass than you have in your entire body.
... One of the Little People - who pays taxes and is YOUR BOSS Joe!
The whole story appears in an NYT article by none other than E.J. Dionne. In addition to claiming he has a higher IQ than the questioner (unprovable either way without getting test scores for them both), Biden insisted that he had three degrees from college (when in fact he had only one, albeit that with a double-major.) He claimed to have been recognized as the "outstanding student" in his college political science department, when in fact he had only been nominated for an award (which he didn't win). Biden claimed to have had a full academic scholarship to law school, when he actually had only a half-scholarship based on financial need.
And most incredibly, at least to me, Biden also claimed to have graduated in the top half of his law school class. That was an incredible whopper, since he actually graduated 76th out of a class of 85 -- a class rank that reflected, but was not by any means the result solely of, the F he got in a first-year course after he was caught having plagiarized five times from a law review article in a class paper he submitted.
That plagiarism, of course, was dramatic foreshadowing to his plagiarizing from speeches of Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock, Hubert Humphrey, and Robert F. Kennedy during his aborted bid for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination."
It’s funny how most people think of the perfect retort AFTER the event. I’m sure the guy WAS speechless afterwards because up to that point, everything seemed hunky dory. I’d like to think I would have retorted, “No, YOU have that reputation! And remember that you work for us.” But Biden probably would’ve audited, harassed, or done a Ft. Marcy Park on anyone who said that.
