Kudos to ABC News’ Rick Klein for a shining example of truth in reporting: no one cares what else Vice President Joe Biden had to say today. The AP’s Josh Lederman seems to have some idea what Biden was talking about.

If we understand correctly, the vice president was speaking in support of legislation that would increase the number of green cards awarded to immigrants studying in the United States who graduate with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. If Biden has his way, those green cards will be attached physically to the diploma with a staple — not stuffed in an envelope together or paper clipped, but literally stapled.

We think that was the context. That, or this.

      The saddest part is that Dan Quayle, not Plugs, will retain the title of being the “dumbest” VP in history, even though Scranton Joe gives us comedy gold every single day…literally.

    Tonight, liberals across this nation are scratching their heads wondering why Uncle Joe said the same thing three times. Literally; not figuratively; literally.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      It’s like he was being redundant, repeating himself, saying the same thing over and over….literally.

    Picture Joe’s brain as the front door and well, you get the rest. It’s almost comical the depths to which liberals will go to apologize for this tool’s ignorance.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Figures aren’t literal but Biden can literally figure.

  • littleones

    Just wanted to be sure no one confused it with ‘liberally’

    Why do we continue to elect senile people to run the country? We have Reid, Biden and Feinstein and look where it’s gotten us.
