Mr. Biden, you must QUALIFY for the Boston Marathon, not just sign up and run, it isn’t like welfare or democrat voters.

Well invite law abiding gun owners to line the marathon run trail. Problem solved.

"The Boston Athletic Association limits the field size to 25,000 for the Boston Marathon"
So it's not likely to be bigger unless a lot of fat runners manage to qualify next year.

People are dead and wounded and this guy is concerned about a sporting event? How compassionate. That is probably the furthest thing from the minds of those directly affected by terrorists.

I ran a 3:04 marathon in 1999 and barely qualified for Boston. You don’t get in just because you want to. You get in because you earned it....

To joey, his attitude to those folk is more akin to: "... well, ya' can't live forever!"

I heard Marathons were being banned. Did *someone* change their mind?

From the national idiot who never removes his foot from his mouth except to kiss Obama’s *ss.
Yeah, and that was barely qualifying for Boston at age 34. I trained with guys who were sub 2:30 marathoners.
I guess if he’s gonna count every DHS, TSA, FBI, CIA, DEA, ICE and State and Federal law enforcement officers lining the course and manning the urban assault vehicles he may be right. Ordinary citizens will be asked to “shelter in place”.

Gotta love it.
“There’s a group of people who are, some of whom are represented here tonight, who I believe are even more important than the politicians, the astronauts, activists, maybe even important than the doctors who are working on a cure for cancer and HIV, and that is comedians,” Kimmel said. “Jimmy is probably a bigger influence on me than anyone in this room, because he’s so talented and energetic that ... quite frankly, it’s a pain in the ass.
“I also want to toast maybe the funniest guy in this room, maybe the funniest of all of us, Vice President Joe Biden,” Kimmel said. “Remember that time he told everyone the president supported gay marriage before the president had a chance to? That was hilarious.”
