OMG, he used a BAAAAD word!

He shouldnt' have said this around microphones given how sensitive people are, but I can't believe they've made such a big deal about this:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010...re-biden-gaffe

He's right! It IS a BIG F***ING DEAL!

He'll probably be forced to issue a tearful public apology. . . I don't know about Planeteers in other countries, but I'm fed up with how overly sensitive, melodramatic, and emotionally vampiric the media and public in this country (U.S.) seem to be. . .

I like this one, titled "WTF Did Biden Just Say?" much better:

http://www.slate.com/id/2248689/

Rant over.

LOL, you gotta love it when we expect more from them than we do from ourselves.
Having said that one our "leaders" got sprung sniffing the chair of a female coworker. He claimed it was a joke but we don't think so. BTW, he is still there because the voters in his area (the richest part of the city) thought he had just stuffed up a bit. The man would have been incharge of billions of dollars and tens of thousands of workers, I'm not sure he's safe to have on our streets let alone running the place.

Sorry I digress yet again. Sounds like a storm in a tea cup ( he was trying to be discreet after all).

I'm getting sick of this politically correct bullsh1t... Nobody can swear, nobody can be racist (I'm okay with that, but they sometimes take it a little too seriously)... For example in Die Hard 4 John is not swearing the way he was doing in 1, 2, and 3... It made me feel like he had been sterilized...
I have the impression that people are taking the little things too seriously, and they aren't serious enough when it comes to big things... They are outraged about this, but nobody gives a sh1t about corruption, for.ex. IMHO.

Yeah, and with movie Watchmen, Dr. Manhattan is naked and things are hanging. Just like in original comic book. Apparently there were folks that found that offensive, I just wonder if whole movie experience is ruined because world most natural thing is evident then... I'm lost of words. Some people eh...

PS: at least it was blue

I don't know where did I read this, but it comes from the code of american filmmakers dated 1933: "Murder is a crime. Describing murder is not. Sex is not a crime. Describing sex is." So much for natural things, eh?

Yep. There's no reason Biden should be ripped about this. It actually comforts me that one of our leaders is gritty enough to drop an F-bomb.

No way! That's funny, if a bit junior-highschool-ish. . .

I still get mad about the Bill Clinton scandal. Yeah, he was doing something a President (or any married man) shouldn't have been doing, but it got blown (pun intended) way out of proportion. Sure, call the guy on it, but don't start a friggin' grand-jury investigation about whether he got a hummer in the Oral - I mean Oval - Office. I love the way my Dad put it - "He had a zipper problem."

I wish it was as funny as it sounds. This retard still has leadership asperations.
I saw the thing with Obama on our news tonight. Your right Andy, this is bother but a slow news day story. I thought I was watching TMZ.

Link to the seat sniffers story.

A tearful apology! It's humiliation, not regret! What a goofball. I think they teach that apology thing in public figure school.

Did you ever hear about Howard Dean? He was running a good campaign for the Presidency until this (it's at the end of this video):
