Joe Biden roots on the Giants during SF event

When you’re in the midst of running a presidential campaign, it’s near impossible (I imagine) to keep up with the times, dates, places and participants of the various major sporting events that are currently happening around you.

But come on, we’ve got to do better than this. And I’m looking at you, Mr. Vice President.

A few weeks ago, a trio of Republicans completely flubbed a softball question at one of their 10,000 primary election debates. A moderator asked them what they’d be doing on a Saturday night if they weren’t at the debate, and Newt Gingrich said he’d be watching the national championship game in basketball and not football. He quickly corrected his mistake, but Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney piled on saying they would also be watching football. Considering the BCS title game actually was two days later was what made their answers completely wrong.

Now, we get the news from the San Francisco Chronicle that Joe Biden on Wednesday night told a San Francisco crowd that the “Giants were on their way to the Super Bowl.” Naturally, the pro-Democrat crowd booed (in a good-natured way) that pronouncement. Obviously, Biden meant the 49ers (and probably had his mind thinking about the San Francisco Giants), though the original line would have gone over big in New York.

Although this clearly will add to his “Biden is a gaffe machine” reputation, there is good news for the Vice President. According to the White House pool report, “The event raised somewhere between $275,000 and $1.1 million.”

Which is a lot of money to pay to be (sort of) insulted about your favorite sports team.

Actually this makes him a better candidate in my eyes. Clearly he takes his job more seriously than the dumbasses in office that sit around watching sports and that are busy trying to meddle in sports rather than fix the problems this country has.

The reporters should have been asking questions on his solutions to our country's problems, but these reporters were probably too stupid and clueless for that so they had to ask dumb sports questions.
