On Friday, Joe Biden met with a bunch of high school and middle school kids in New Hampshire and welcomed them inside the big top. While speaking to the kids, Biden gushed about college cheerleaders and how they are the most impressive athletes around. I don't mention this to open a debate on whether cheerleading is a sport, merely to serve as a reminder of who currently occupies The Office Of The Vice President Of The United States.

Over the years, I've done a 180 on Joe and I hope you do, too. The more I get to know him, the more I'd like to hang out with him. You can have the candidate who lies about how many marathons he's run, I'll take the guy who lies about how many beers deep he is. OK, back to the student athletes.

"The cheerleaders in college are the best athletes in college," he said. "They are amazing. You think I'm joking. You think I'm joking. They're almost all gymnasts. The stuff they do on hardwood, it absolutely blows my mind, thinking, you know, they're up there without a net. You know?"


This guy. This guy is, like, pretty far up there in the line of succession to the Preisdency. And he's just spit-balling up there to a bunch of 16-year-olds about hot, older women and the stuff they do on hardwood. But wait, there's more: Joe Biden showing off his laser, rocket arm.

Biden got to toss the football before he left, spotting a football player standing behind him and saying, "Looks like an end over there," right before lobbing the football his way.


Election day is right around the corner, folks. Be smart out there.
