#Literally: Biden’s verbal tic prompts bipartisan mockery

Out: “Frankly.”

In: “Literally.”

Vice President Joe Biden’s 40-minute stemwinder was punctuated with a rhetorical crutch that caught the attention of Twitter users of all political persuasions.

Bipartisan hilarity ensued. Er, #literally:


Find a silver lining when you can:

    My question is why do the Dem speakers all end with “God bless….” yet they tried to remove God from their platform?

    In Medieval times, it was customary for the jester to entertain the crowd before the king spoke.

    As funny as the “literally” part was, I can’t understand what “The hinge is in your hands” means.

    I literally never guessed that literally would literally become the second most uttered word after I. Good thing I literally changed the channel to watch a special on Ronaldus Magnus on H2.

    As I watched the DNC I could not believe ALL the BOLD FACE LIES that where said about Mr. obamas record of service for the American people. And how can joe biden stand on that stage and talk about our Troops like he cares about them When obama and biden has seen to it that the Military has to pay higher insurance rates at a time of War.

      Biden’s Daddy was a car salesman. Joey learned from the BEST, how to try to sell an overpriced clunker to people who can’t afford the payments but want to LOOK GOOD sitting in it.
      It’s all about appearances, folks.
