Joe Biden, remember that guy? What's he been up to since November 4? Search me, but yesterday he dragged himself out of the gaffe cave to give a speech at the National Governors Association conference.
You'll never guess who else was there…
"I want to thank all of you for being here and Governor Palin I want to thank you particularly," Biden said to the Alaska governor. "I think it is, I hope, the whole country can see it's sort of a metaphor for the fact that this election is over and here we are."
Another metaphor for the fact that the election is over: being vice president-elect. (Funny how that works.) But being vice president-elect isn't a barrel of joy, at least not if you're Joe Biden. It's a solitary slog through the valley of despair while everybody chuckles at your pain…
"As I told you when we walked in, since the race is over no one pays attention to me at all," Biden told Palin as the governors laughed. "So maybe you'll walk outside with me or something later and say hello to me."
Biden's comments were just his third set of public remarks since Election Day.
Gosh, I wonder why.
