Uncle Joe can’t stand the heat

Michelle Malkin » Uncle Joe can’t stand the heat.

Joe Biden has got to be the WORST Vice President this country has ever had.  This man knows absolutely nothing about anything.  He makes noises with his vocal cords and has no idea what noises are being made.  He’s rude.  He’s crass.  He’s the laughing stock of American Politics.  He lives the arrogant life of a true elitist.  In general, he is not someone anyone would want to be in the presence of nor live nearby.  The only adjectives that can be used to define this man are all the negative ones.  There just aren’t any positive words that can be used in the same breath when Joe Biden’s name is mentioned.  What an embarrassment he must be to his family.  He probably has no close relation with his wife and kids.  He is his own man and doesn’t need anyone else to stand on the level he stands.  Everyone is at least one-half step below him.  In his mind I’m sure he thinks Obama is below him.  And as much as I want to see Barry Obama out of the White House, I want to see Joe gone even more so.  Here’s Michelle Malkin’s latest blog about Sheriff Joe:

Joe Biden: Beltway Bubble Boy

Last fall, before the midterm shellacking, Vice President Joe Biden admonished rank-and-file Democratic voters to “stop whining.” Uncle Tough Guy should practice what he screeches. The 2012 campaign has barely begun, but Biden’s thin skin makes a spring roll wrapper look impenetrable.

Biden’s office is now calling for an official investigation of a young editor who dared to question His Highness. Jason Mattera of the conservative-leaningHuman Eventsmagazine confronted the veep last week on his hysterical claims that rape and murder would increase if Congress didn’t ram through the half-trillion-dollar White House jobs bill. The testy exchange between the audacious journalist and the temper-challenged Beltway pol took place in a Senate hallway:

Mattera: Do you regret using a rape reference to describe Republican opposition to the president’s bill?

Biden: I didn’t use it. No, no, no, what I said, let’s get it straight, guys. Don’t screw around with me. Let’s get it straight. Listen to me. I said rape was up, three times, in Flint (Michigan). They’re the numbers, go look at the numbers. Murder’s up, rape is up, burglary’s up, that’s exactly what I said.

Mattera: And if Republicans don’t pass this bill, then rape will continue to rise?

Biden: Murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, all crimes will continue to rise.

Never mind that the statistics in Flint actually show no correlation between crime rates and the number of police officers in the city. It’s never about thefacts. It’s about the shameless demonization of Biden’s and Obama’s political opponents — and those in the press who would dare question their doom-and-gloom narratives.

After jabbing his finger in Mattera’s face, Biden stalked off, and one of his rattled press aide protectors yelped: “Who are you with?” Like playground tattletales who just got smacked in the face after cheating at tetherball, Team Biden then reported Mattera’s transgressions to the Senate press gallery and the standing committee of correspondents.The Hillnewspaper reported on Tuesday that “the matter is under review.”

Biden’s crude response to Mattera’s challenge — “Don’t screw around with me” — is par for the Beltway Bubble Boy’s course. This entitled blowhard has long sought to bully reporters and ordinary citizens who question Bidenrhhea of the mouth.

In October 2008, WFTV Channel 9 anchorBarbara Westput Biden on the hot seat over ACORN, voter fraud and Obama’s infamous “spread the wealth” comments. Biden falsely denied anyrelationship between ACORN and Obama, an ACORN affiliate Project Vote community organizer whose 2008 campaign doled out more than $800,000 to another ACORN satellite group. West was calm and professional. After sputtering, “C’mon, let’s get real” to West and asking whether her questions were a “joke,” Biden’s handlers lambasted the questions as “combative and woefully uninformed about simple facts.”

Anything less than total sycophancy from the Obamedia is considered “combative,” you see. Biden then cracked the brass knuckles and punished the Florida television station bycancelinga previously scheduled interview with his wife.

The perpetually vexed veep seems to have a hang-up with Florida journalists. In March, Biden’s stafflocked Orlando Sentinel reporter Scott Powers in a closetfor hours to prevent him from talking with wealthy donors at a $500-per-person fundraiser where Biden spoke. He told the Drudge Report: “When I’d stick my head out, they’d say, ‘Not yet. We’ll let you know when you can come out.’” One of the attendees later told the Sentinel: “If I had known there was a reporter stuffed in the closet, I would have been compelled to stand up and demand answers. I would also like to know if this is actually legal totreat people like caged animals. I’m disgusted by these actions.”

And yet, Biden keeps getting a golden pass for his half-oaf, half-ogre shtick.

Last year, when a Milwaukee, Wis., custard shop owner told Biden that Washington should lower his taxes, Biden snapped that he was a “smartass.” Biden’s apologists played it off as a joke. But he set the imperial tone with voters two decades ago during his failed presidential run, when a New Hampshire citizen named Frank asked him about his lousy academic record.“I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect,” Biden hissed before falsely claiming he graduated in the top half of his law school class.

As political bloggerDoug Powersjoked: “If they start banning any reporter with the potential to make Joe Biden look silly, the press gallery is going to be as sparsely populated as Capitol Hill’s next ‘I quit earmarks, ask me how’ seminar.”

On a sober note, Team Biden’s media litmus test is appalling. If the Senate caves and bars Mattera, no one is safe from Uncle Joe’s goonish etiquette police.

Fun fact: Guess who Biden sought out for advice on not looking like an unhinged rage ball? Yep, that paragon of calm:Keith Olbermann.

How despicable can one human being be?
