Joe Biden On Domestic Abuse: "This Isn't Your Garden Variety Slap Across the Face’
Remember, this is the sitting vice president of the United States, clearly implying that a slap across the face to wifey is not domestic abuse, just business as usual!
I wonder if Jill Biden has learned her 'place' with the aid of this kind of 'discipline'? Does the vice president laugh and giggle when he administers it,like he did in the vice presidential debate with Paul Ryan? Is anyone going to have the stones to ask the vice president what he meant by that?
And no, I'm not exaggerating one bit.
You know that if Dick Cheney had said something like this, it would have been headlines. It would be the Story Of The Day. Maybe of the week.
What was that again about a GOP war on women? Where's the press? Where's NOW? Or do they give this sort of nonsense a pass if somebody has a 'D" after their name?
Update: Well, whaddya know? Apparently I and the National Review both got punked on this one.
Vice President Biden included a phrase that was edited out in the above video, saying: "These are tell-tale signs to say this isn’t your garden-variety slap across the face which is totally unacceptable in and of itself."
Obviously, as the late Gilda Radner would have said, that's very different. I'm actually very glad to be wrong on this one, feeling as I do about 'men' hitting women.My apologies to the Veep and to anyone else who was upset by this.
