Biden Receives Mongolian Horse, Names It 'Celtic'
Political Punch ^ | August 22, 2011 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 08/22/2011 1:28:57 PM PDT by Talisker

"The horse is the most important animal in Mongolia,” an aide traveling with Biden told reporters. “It is the lifeblood of the country (nomadic history), so giving a horse is one of the most meaningful gifts that can be given."

Biden said that he named the horse “Celtic.” But the horse apparently did not respond in kind. When asked later to explain what happened, Biden said the animal "reared up" on him and concluded that it must not have liked "the Irish epitaph."

"Celtic"? WTF? Oh yeah, if I ever went to Mongolia and was presented a horse, that's what I'd name it - "Celtic."

I really, really hope this jackass is running some watch-the-idiot distraction campaign for something else that's going on. Because taking Biden at face value is literally impossible. Or it should be.

I’m surprised he didn’t name it “Amtrak.”

First thing Celtic did, when it realized Plugs was now his master,was to take the biggest and smelliest dump ever dropped

We’re just lucky he didn’t name it “Schezwan Pork”.

Horse? Those look like camels. Was this written by the same people who consider any long gun an AK-47 or an an assault rifle?

Only Joe Biden would an Irish name to a Mongolian horse. Especially one that was a gift. Even the horse knew it was wrong. Wonder if “celtic” is a dirty word in Mongolian?

As a horseowner, it is my observation that some horses do not care for smaller ponies and donkeys. Maybe this horse just recognized an ass, and responded instinctively...

It certainly is a dirty word to Rangers FC fans.

After reading the entire article, I found that Biden tried his hand at archery. Dear God! That’s the last man who should be allowed near arrows! Maybe his handlers were hoping for a “tragic” accident.

A heartbeat away from the presidency and he doesn’t know the difference between epitaph and epithet.

Celtic wasn't Joe's first choice. He made that selection after he was told that the names Fury, Trigger and Silver were already being used.

More Irish swing voters than Mongolian.

We wanted to present the Mongolians with the back half of a horse, but they refused to keep Biden.

Unless “Celtic” suddenly committed suicide upon hearing his new owner was Joe Biden, didn’t he mean to say Irish epithet?

Lord, save us from this moron.

OMG, Becky! I'd give anything for a Mongolian pony. They are AMAZING!!! Biden doesn't deserve such an extraordinary gift. I'm surprised he didn't name it "Plugs".

My fave mongolian movie..."Close to Eden". Glorious. Rent it. It will blow you away.

Methinks Joe meant “epithet,” recognizing “Celtic” might not be well received by a Mongolian.

“the Irish epitaph.”

It was a dead horse?
Did he wake up and find it in his bed?

“YOU like Horse?”
“mmm, yes very nice.”

Bet if Joe was given an Irish Setter he would name it Genghis.

“the Irish epitaph.”

Obviously, The Gaffe Machine Biden does not know the definition of “epitaph”.

This story ain't even covered the beginning of stupid.

Biden's Secret Service name is also Celtic. It's supposed to be kept a secret.

When Biden used that name for a gift horse he blew his own security cover.

Now the Secret Service has to come up with a new name and change all of their security protocols for Joe.

“After reading the entire article, I found that Biden tried his hand at archery. Dear God! That’s the last man who should be allowed near arrows!”

When I read about this, I couldn’t help but conjure up an image of Joe Biden with his bow, and Dick Cheney with his shotgun, going out hunting together. I’m pretty sure Dick Cheney would be a lot safer than Joe Biden in that scenario.

OMG... Seems there is no end to Biden Foolery!

Beginning to think, we will hear a similar announcement soon from Biden; like the sad one, we just heard from Glenn Campbell.

That is to say; it's "alzheimers" - but with no good-bye tour. (Maybe this trip is what the Doctor - and Obama - ordered. Or just Valerie Jarrett.)

He might have meant “epitaph” if Celtic in Mongolian means dinner.
