Dunce of the people! Biden attends Costco grand opening; hilarity ensues; Update: Pics, noshes on samples, has extended shopping spree; Update: #BidenAtCostco

That’s right. Vice President Biden hit a Costco this morning.

He’s not VP, he’s you!

The mocking was swift and hilarious. It’s a BFD! Literally and stuff.

Indeed! Twitchy will, of course, update with all the further hilarity!

Update: Did Joe snag himself some samples?

Children’s books, maybe.

Heh. Make it happen, Biden.

Update: Confirmed Costco card holder. Literally.

Whee! Shopping!

And, another thing to please make happen.

Update: Nothing is complete without a hashtag! Enter, #BidenAtCostco

More, please!

Another hilarious photo.

Oh, our aching sides! Baffled Biden.

“Hey, man, he doesn’t need tires.”

And, see! It was children’s books.

And sample noshing. We knew it!

Shopping is hard.

The photos are priceless.

Pie! Whee!


Alas, probably not.

      Hi, tom:

      Nice ‘Idiocracy’ reference!

      Did he get a pallet of Brawndo?

  • TwitWit

    So.. I’m guessing taxpayers paid for most, if not all, of the memberships.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Yes, IF that was really a Costco card. Anyone think the door checker would stop VP and the SS detail?

      • TwitWit

        true.. but i wasn’t “talking” about the VP or his SS detail.

      • TwitWit

        oh.. Joe Biden just renewed his costco card on Tuesday and his “surprise” visit was Wednesday.. what great luck!

    • therantinggeek

      Wouldn’t surprise me.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    this makes absolutely no sense.

    Do they have a pharmacy? He should check out the price of birth control for Sandra Fluke.

      Now why would he do that when Obama promised her she could get them for free??

  • Joseph Phillips

    This is why I hate politicians. Pandering, stupid, asinine stunts – instead of getting down to work like Benghazi or the budget, for example. Hey, Joe, did you buy your smarm in bulk too?

    • http://www.righthook38.com righthook38

      Yeah, why is he even there?? This is stupid. The election is over. How about actually working?? Well, then again, maybe it’s better to keep them away from the WH…they’ve done enough damage already.

        This group never stops campaigning. Maybe he’s getting ready to run in 2016, if BO fails to overturn the term limits on the president, from 2 to endless.

        • Joseph Phillips

          It’s endless and not presidential. It’s like they can’t get enough strokes from their fan base. Get to work!

        • Christian Orpinell

          I agree, it is like campaigning over and over again.

    • irishgirl91

      To hate a politician for doing this is like hating a snake, it is what it is. Who I can’t stand are the people that find this great. They are like a rats that crawl up with the snake and let it eat them.

      • Joseph Phillips

        Snakes and rats… sounds about right!

        HAHA! Right on, Candy!

    • dr44

      Absolutely. Barry sends Joe out to Costco to buy bull, ah, excrement in 2000-pound piles – one day’s worth at the White House!

      • Joseph Phillips

        2,000 per day? Does that include weekends? 😉

        How dare he insulate me that way!

        • http://www.facebook.com/judith.c.bean Judith Carol Bean

          You mean insult, right? Insulate means to wrap in something, like insulation of a hot water tank, exterior walls of a house, water pipes.

          • AgntOrngVctm

            He means resent, right? Resemble is similarity, like these words resemble a Norm Crosby comedy routine from the ’60s. I do like water pipes though. lol

    • TocksNedlog

      He looks more like a WalMart “greeter”.

        Walmart has higher standards than that.

    The guy goes shopping and this is news? Spare me please, I don’t care if he climbs mount Everest, he is VP because we can’t figure out how someone gets 900 votes from one household, or more than 100% in a voting district. This is disgusting

  • http://bobtheump.com/ BobTheUmp

    As Vice-President he sits as President of the Senate. Instead of using his political clout and standing as an officer of the Senate to pursue a solution to the budget nightmare that is the Reid Senate he spends taxpayer dollars and precious time paying back Costco co founder Jim Sinegal for speaking at the Democrat National Convention. More than pandering. Using the Office of the Vice-President and the Secret Service to pay off a political debt is just exactly what the President and Vice President claimed to be running against.

  • mkreider

    Biden at Costco….just too many jokes with this. Just a photo op distraction. So many comments about working in Washington now that the election is over…hmmmm let those Democrats be – they do less harm by actually doing nothing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kurt.harlacher Kurt Harlacher

    This will be the only time Joe will ever set foot in that building! What a bunch of crap!!!

  • http://twitter.com/angelcandy54 candy martin

    Omg! Trying so hard not to laugh cuz I’m at work, biting my tongue and lips not to LOL!

  • Polly Purebred

    Did he whip out a wad of cash like Obama did when buying his sandwich?

  • Polly Purebred

    You have to have a card to shop at Costco but not vote.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

    At least they have paper towels in bulk so they can clean up everyone’s drool and loss of bladder control because Joe Biden was at Costco.

  • wolfie773

    Jack Daniel’s? No, it’s the rest of us that need a drink.

  • Emjay Graykat

    Someone needs to tell Joe they won the campaign and he needs to get back to the White House. Or, this is how Obama is keeping him busy and out of the way.

  • digitalPimple

    This man is a complete dip-shit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/judith.c.bean Judith Carol Bean

      Oh, pleeeeeez! Don’t insult $hit!

  • tredglx

    Think of the irony here:
    An ID is needed to enter and shop at Costco, but not to cast your ballot in an election.
    Why aren’t Democrats all over this as an attempt to disenfranchise the consumer?
    Only in America.

  • Michelle

    Notice in a few pics there’s a Costco employee pushing his cart and also unloading it at the register? I didn’t know Costco offers this service. I must be a schmuck – I push my own cart around and unload it myself at the register. Does this personal service Joey received come with membership? Also, did Joey have the day off or did he go on his Costco adventure while working in my dime?

    • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

      In defense of Costco if they have two people at the register one will check you out and the other will unload your cart and then put it in another cart. However, no one has offered to push my cart except for hub’s but he’s obligated LoL

      • Michelle

        They do that for the large, heavy stuff – not the items one can pick up with one hand and place on the conveyor belt…as is what’s going on in the picture. They do not empty your cart for you – you are expected to place the easy items on the belt. The employee in the picture is placing small items from his cart on the belt (not another cart) – this is not something they do for us schmucks. It’s good to be Joey Biden!

        • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

          I’m not sure where you live @twitter-27601201:disqus but the Costco locations in Huntsville, AL and Brentwood, TN will empty your cart no matter what it is. I’ve had them come up to me and say “I will empty your cart for you” as I’m placing items on the conveyor belt. Now it does only happen if they have two people working the register.

          • Michelle

            I live in Los Angeles, have also been a member of Sam’s Club when I lived in Boston – both places you are expected to empty your cart of the small items and place them on conveyor belt, leaving the heavy items for the cashier to scan with the hand device. Have never been to a Costco or Sam’s Club where one can just walk their full cart up to the register and the employees take care of the rest. Must be a regional thing where they have Costco employees who will empty your cart onto the conveyor belt – have never seen that.

          • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

            Sam’s club member as well, they’ve never done that. It may be a regional thing as you said. I just thought it was done everywhere. Maybe if we end up at the one in DC we can say “hey you did it for Biden why not me too”? LoL

  • Kent Barcus

    Joe Biden is our Republic’s consolation prize for making such a poor Presidential choice..

  • http://www.politisite.com/ Albert N. Milliron

    After Biden commiserates with the poor…. he starts looking at 1500.00 watches… a man of the people… and republicans are the greedy.. Hey Joe, how much do you give to charity again?

    Biden promotes Costco day after Costco announces they will give shareholders a higher dividend before the end of the year in order to avoid higher tax rates in 2013….

    Was he shopping on taxpayer time (while on the job)? I believe that calls for being fired, any other federal employee would be.
