Guess What Joe Biden Was Doing At The Inauguration

Both he and Malia Obama were busy taking photos of the proceedings.

The problem is, one of them is a ten-year old child and her gesture is cute and charming, whereas the other guy is a 65 year-old man who just became our Vice-President. If Palin had done this on the day, she would've been flayed again as lacking utter gravitas for the role.

  • Let's see if anyone catches a detail I noticed in both photos. No, it's not about Nana Robinson's weird Red Riding Hood get-up. :P

  • The O's flag pin?

    At any rate, if it's not too creepy, given her age: Malia seems on her way to becoming a very attractive woman.

  • Oh, and I concur on the Palin/Biden photography (non)controversy thing.

  • O. appears to be asleep in both photos. At least eyes closed. If this doesn't prove what a doofus Biden is, I don't know what does.

  • Joe Biden: "Where's the film winder on this damn thing?"

  • Well, if you had really been watching, the kid was having a problem with the camera. Biden reached over for it, fiddled and fixed it, handed it back.

  • Stop and think about it for a moment, Victoria.

    For Vice President:

    George H. W. Bush picked Dan Quayle. George W. Bush picked Dick Cheney.

    So Obama is taking a page from the Bush playbook and 'impeachment-proofing' himself early by getting a Veep that people won't want to see running the country.

  • Agreeing with Eli Blake, I also add that Biden is a doofus. Did you read his jab at the Chief Justice today? Impeachment-proofing is right.

  • Michael H: Because of that avatar, I always read your comments and hear a Daffy-esque lisp.

  • The detail?

    That Biden, at least, didn't bring his own digital camera to the event. He clearly is using Malia Obama's and probably, in an avuncular gesture, offered to take a better snap for her.

    But he's still a doofus.
