One of the things that endears Joe Biden to so many Americans is that he seems to have a good deal in common with them. A few examples: his reliance, for most of his career, on public transportation to get to work each day; his desperate clinging reliance on "the comb-over"; and his apparent willingness to laugh at Joe Biden…
"Most people refer to me who know me, and even in the press, of being a little bit square," Biden said. "And now, I'm the philanderer. I think it's hilarious, the stuff they do on me."
Biden's staff had previously refused to comment on the The Onion coverage. "Let me get this straight: You want to interview the vice president about stories about him in The Onion?" spokesman Jay Carney asked The New York Times when they tried to get the scoop. "Well, I'll give you credit for trying," Carney said.
The Times was attempting to verify reports from The Onion staff that Biden's team had emailed the publication to tell them "keep it up."
I'm actually not surprised that he's okay with the coverage. Do you know how many young women read that paper? Not just women, but women with glasses. And, I'll tell ya, women with glasses put out. Oh yeah…
