Biden’s oops moment in SF: “Giants on their way to Super Bowl”
sfgate.com ^ | 1-18-12

Posted on 01/18/2012 7:25:14 PM PST by Justaham

Vice President Joe Biden had his “oops” moment Wednesday speaking in a 49er-crazed San Francisco when he told a crowd at a city political fundraiser that “the Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.”

Biden spoke at a closed event in the city’s financial District at the Bently Reserve when he made the gaffe, according to a White House pool report released today. The comment by Biden drew immediate “good-natured” boos from the crowd, according to the report by Josh Richman of the Oakland Tribune, who was the only local print reporter allowed to cover the event.

After suggesting that the Giants were heading to the Super Bowl, Biden quickly recognized the gaffe and and explained he was accustomed to thinking in terms of the San Francisco Giants and their baseball wins. His next reference was to the “49ers on their way” to the Big Game.

I could spend my life dedicated to trying, and would still come up short of the level of douchebaggery that Joe has attained.

The bar, he keeps a raising !

If BUSH had said this, how many times would they play it?

10 or 100,000 times?

Let’s see how much play it gets.

...and explained he was accustomed to thinking in terms of the San Francisco Giants and their baseball wins.
That was Biden's 'oops' moment. Had it been Dan Quayle, every latenight a-hole would harp on it for months, and how he should be a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

The San Francisco Giants have as much chance of winning the Super Bowl as the Baltimore Colts have of winning the World Series.

Amazing how different the media treatment is of Joe Biden's gaffes compared to Dan Quayle's.

(Yes, I know the Colts no longer play in Baltimore.)

Meanwhile,espy reports: EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning started but did not finish practice because of illness.

Apparently he has a bad bug and keeps running to the men’s room, not throwing down the field. Or throwing up the field, for that matter.

He’s a busy man. The concerns that we have are not his, and this is true of all those guys. Baseball and football mean nothing to him. It’s just a flubbed line.

I think Biden has been drinking too much denatured booze, which might explain is brain troubles.

Had Sarah Palin made a similar gaffe, the MSM would be talking about for 3 years.

Oh, wait. They have been.

Meanwhile, Biden gets a “lovable lunk” free pass.
