The V.P. is doing some public service at a church, and that quote "but for the grace of God go I" is certainly applicable to ALL of us.
Now, are fishsticks kind-of funny? Sure. But I don't think ol' slow Joe woke up one morning and said "What do the homeless need? FISHSTICKS!" I suspect that's what the center had on the menu, and he was just helping out with whatever they were doing.
This administration MUST start creating jobs, the real way (broad tax breaks), lest we all find ourselves in line for our fishsticks. And of course, Obama will fight that tooth and nail. But this? Eh, it's just politician public service - doing the right thing, with a camera crew in tow.
Or... Obama's way of keeping ole' Joe busy.
Regardless, bless him for doing it.
I believe it came out during the campaign that old Joe was not much for charitable donations unless it is with other peoples money.
The church was very generous to serve the food and provide our middle class hero warrior with a photo op.
I remember 2-3 years ago Dick Cheney recieved some divedend or something, previously agreed upon, from Haliburton, for the tune of multiple millions of dollars. And he donated the entire amount to charity/s.
Not much said in the MSM about that.
I remember 2-3 years ago, GWB flew into Iraq under the cover of darkness. And unannounced, served our soldiers Thanksgiving dinner.
You honestly don't think he did any more than don the apron and pose for some photos, do you?
Note that even the shelter managers knew better than to trust him with any sharp objects like knives, etc.
And when ye do Charity, do her quietly in the dark, and count thy Blessings; but those who loudly do Charity in Public, I say unto you: They have their Reward.
Or something like that.
