Below Average Joe

Joe Biden: a little slow on the uptake. Nobody ever accused him of the being the sharpest tool in the shed. But let it also comfort you to know that he is not even vaguely aware of certain members of his own administration’s identities – people who have churned up so much controversy in the media they have had to step down.

Anyone know who Van Jones is? Obama hired him to be his so-called “Green Czar” in 2009, despite his rap sheet. Yeah, that’s right, his arrest record. Oh, it was just that one little time – you know, during the Rodney King riots, and the charges were eventually dropped. No biggie.

But then there are those other little pesky matters, like Van Jones being a self-described communist, signing his name to a petition questioning whether the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks, and the video released of him calling Republicans “assholes” (and all of this came to light while he was still working as the Green Czar, supposedly drumming up Green Jobs. And P.S. – what a great job they’ve done in that department. That cool $535 million to Solyndra was well spent, huh Barry?).

Needless to say, when Van Jones resigned in late 2009 amid a storm of controversy (most of which was of Glenn Beck’s making), it garnered national attention. Apparently, however, it did not warrant Vice President Biden’s. Good ol’ one cell Joe (as in, one brain cell) never noticed. Recently, he was interviewed on the radio in Florida and asked about the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street movement. His response? "There's a great frustration here in America that the two parties haven't been able to get very much moving. We have been in this period where there is just nothing but fighting, and so you have on the one hand Van Jones' guys. Whoever he is."

Oh. My. God.
“Whoever he is?” Pull your spray tanned, veneer toothed head

out of your ass and please pay attention. The only thing more

frightening than the way the President has been trying to run

the country is the thought that if something happened to him

YOU would be running it, instead.
