Vice President Biden on Leno: I Wanted Russia to Take Rush Limbaugh in Spy Deal
Friday, July 9, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/09/2010 7:33:04 PM PDT by kristinn

Vice President Joe Biden (half-)joked to Jay Leno on the Tonight Show this evening that he wanted to include conservative talk radio king Rush Limbaugh as part of the spy swap that took place earlier today with Russia.

The Obama administration has targeted Limbaugh as an enemy of the regime since it came to power in January 2009.

The Associated Press reported on Biden's appearance on the Tonight Show:

Leno then showed a sultry photo of alleged Russian agent Anna Chapman and asked: "Are our spies this hot?"

Biden's reply, in a mock-serious tone: "Let me be clear. It was not my idea to send her back."

The vice president also said he had one more suggestion for the deal that was ignored.

"I thought they'd take Rush Limbaugh," he said.

Joking about Soviet-style exiling of your political opponents is apparently in fashion in the Obama administration. For the foreseeable future, Rush Limbaugh better make sure it's the real EIB One he's flying.

So do you think having Joe bite me on his program will help or hurt his ratings.

Remember when Bubba joked at the WH correspondent’s dinner about Rush only harping on some scandal cuz it involved a black guy?

It was a gratuitous slap —totally unmerited— and 14 years later Rush STILL takes shots at Bubba for it, AS HE SHOULD.

Same thing for Bubba blaming Rush for Oklahoma City.

Rush is a super nice guy, but this is a gargantuan pallet of ammo for him against Biden.

If Rush was shipped to Russia, he’d find his way to a microphone with a trustworthy translator.

Communism would fall in a matter of days.

Our female spies may not be as hot, but they're champs at blowing their cover.

Didn't Valerie Plame spill the beans to Joe Wilson that she was a spy on their first date?

Liberals are among the very few creatures which do not come equipped with enough brains to tan their own hide. Biden’s brains wouldn’t be sufficient to tan a squirrel skin.

Biden is a Moron from the backwaters of Scranton, PAand the only reason he was chosen as VP was he had his son, Beau, lock up Larry Sinclair to shut Larry up after his National Press Club Assault of Truth on Obozo Hussein’s Sexual Homosexual Alleged Activities!

I was around to see Nixon go on Laugh In and deliver a somber and straight faced "Sock it to me?" as a bit, about 42 years ago. That may have been the beginning of the end of politicians pretending to have any dignity. Thanks, Dick.

"I thought they'd take Rush Limbaugh," he said.

Never pick a fight with someone who buys radio waves by the gigawatt.

Biden's reply, in a mock-serious tone: "Let me be clear. It was not my idea to send her back."

That would have been an appropriately creepy line for Bill Clinton to say.

Maybe it’s just me but I’d take Valerie Plame over that Chapman girl any day.

Nice to see Biden is copying Obama with his “let me be clear” line. Obama always says that. It’s like how McCain always said “My Friends”.

Leno should have told Biden his jokes were funnier when Neil Kinnock said them for the first time.

Garbage like bambi and bite-me will eventually be taken to the heap and discarded, but, what does it say about a nation that would elect such tripe? Methinks we have a problem.

I have never seen a more publicly petty and vindictive administration in my life. Rush Limbaugh is a private citizen and the Vice President is making jokes about swapping him for Russian spies.

Biden disgraces the office he holds and the people he purports to represent. In eight years, can anyone remember George Bush or Dick Cheney publicly disparaging a private citizen?

Of course when the VP elevates Rush’s stature like this; you know the heat is getting to them.
