Can Joe Biden Possibly Compete With Clint Eastwood
Miami Herald ^ | 09/04/2012 | Dave Barry

Posted on 09/04/2012 9:22:02 AM PDT by mc5cents

Now the eyeballs of the nation turn toward this vibrant, proud, ambitious city in North or possibly South Carolina as the Democrats gather here to present their message of hope for America, namely that the Republicans are fascist, racist women-hating scum.

But the most anticipated speech here will be delivered Thursday night by President Obama, who will be making the case that he deserves a second term in office, based on his solid record of taking on some of the most difficult problems this nation has ever faced and unflinchingly blaming all of them, including sunspot activity, on the previous administration. The president will also speak about his plan for improving the economy, which continues to be a pesky problem despite the many hard-hitting speeches the president has made about it.

LOL. More speeches!! Please, the country is counting you Zero.

Joe Biden can’t compete with Clint Eastwood, but Jane Fonda sure can. Bring it on!

Clint was brilliant and his delivery was magnificent. Biden is just stupid and I'm sure his delivery was what he is, a genuine nut.

“Unfortunately, it appears that our best hope for entertainment is going to be Vice President Joe Biden . . . “

Well, you could always persuade Betty White to appear. Howl! I’ve read that such petitions are making the rounds.

No — because Biden is not an actor. Whatever comes out of him is Biden himself — to the core..

“This is Brilliant, all hail Dave Barry!”

A slam on Clint Eastwood and William Shatner in the same column?

I feel a bit tepid about this.

...this vibrant, proud, ambitious city in North or possibly South Carolina

What's this supposed to mean? The Miami Herald can't locate Charlotte on the map?

“What’s this supposed to mean? The Miami Herald can’t locate Charlotte on the map?”

Perhaps it refers to SC supplying the sand for Hussein’s sculpture in NC.

And yet... few see the cleverness of the man who created this sculpture, out of sand.

Built to decay at the same rate as Obama during the convention.

In the meantime, he gets hits to his website and travel agency. Must be a capitalist. Or a former Cyber Security Expert for the ‘government’.

Frankly, I would answer the questions and fill the gaps that Clint opened.

But that would require wit and intelligence, qualities the DNC and liberals do not possess.

obozo will not go down in history as a complete zero.

From what I have read, the beirmeisters concocted a pretty good brew... Does anyone remember “Henry’s?”

But if course, he didn’t make it.

Glad to see Barry giving it to both sides.

One of the gems:

There are a lot more protesters here than there were in Tampa, reflecting either a sudden resurgence in social awareness on the part of America’s youth or nice weather.

Apparently, you are not familiar with Dave Barry’s comedic writing.

Maybe it’s an allusion to Biden.

“We can win North Carolina again!” says Biden. In Virginia.

Well, if he follows Clint’s line in Magnum Force: A wise man knows his limitations, my guess is he cannot.

Dave Barry on Charlotte and its many attractions:

The NASCAR Hall of Fame is located here, but that is only the beginning: There are also roads, buildings, trees, sidewalks, several restaurants, literally dozens of traffic lights and a modern taxi fleet consisting of three modern taxis.

On top of all that, right now downtown Charlotte boasts a huge sand sculpture of President Obama. It bears an uncanny resemblance to what the president would look like if he were made out of sand sculpted by somebody who had never actually seen him.

That's some funny writing! LOL!

If it’s a contest as to who’s more batsh1t crazy, or who/can say the dumbest, most offensive thing, Biden will win.
