Meme, Myself, and I: Biden’s BFD

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about Vice President Joe Biden’s slip of the tongue at a health care conference. After introducing President Obama, he was caught whispering, “It’s a big fucking deal.”

Several things struck me about this. First of all, I thought Joe Biden wasn’t allowed to speak. I could have sworn President Obama signed an executive order to keep him quiet when cameras are in the room.

Secondly, I was surprised how quickly this became a meme. I don’t think I recall any other Vice President in history who was ever, ever, EVER being reduced to silly internet memes

Now, everyone’s been having some fun with the Veep’s little slip-up, and I would be remiss if I didn’t poke some fun as well, and it just so happens that Biden dined with the Obamas last night, and made a rather unfortunate comment in front of Sasha and Malia.
