Joe Biden hosted a Black History Month event at his residence on Monday ("Try the hors d'oeuvres," he insisted, "They're all made with peanut butter!") and as usual ended up with controversial comments sticking to the roof of his mouth.
After years of hearing that taxpayers want him to keep his hands off their "cotton-picking money," Joe apparently came to believe that the money really is picking cotton, singing spirituals, and being held in slavery by the evil rich.
"This cannot stand!" Biden shouted at the invitees, nearly causing his stovepipe hat to topple. "It's not fair!"
"Business experts are saying that the concentration of wealth is stunting growth," Biden continued in a clear reference to former child star Gary Coleman, "So let's do something that's worthy of emancipation!"
Presumably, Biden's idea of emancipation consists of "freeing" money from the capitalist bastards who actually worked for it and using that liberated wealth for something much more important: the funding of the Left's vast, and nearly inescapable, vote-producing entitlement plantations.
Hope n' Change finds it sadly ironic, especially during Black History month, that when our nation got its first black president, he looked at all the possible contenders for vice president...and chose to pick a ninny.
WINTER WEATHER BONUS...
(Insert worst expletive you can imagine here). We just found out that the immensely talented Greg Gutfeld is leaving his long-running, hilarious show "Red Eye" to work on a new weekend show for Fox News. His final appearance is tonight (late Friday or early Saturday, depending on how you view 3 a.m.)
Not kidding in even the least, Hope n' Change feels like we've just been informed of the death of a loved one. "Red Eye" has been, since 2007, the smartest and funniest news commentary show on the air, bar none (yeah, we're talking to you, Jon Stewart). This is the show we watch to laugh at the news instead of just totally freaking out.
"Red Eye" will continue with rotating hosts and will hopefully still be a "must watch" with the many talented regulars and guests who populate the nightly panel. It's worth tuning in just to see the stylish sweaters sported by TV's Andy Levy and enjoy the regal pageant waves of Joanne Nosuchinsky.
That being said, Greg Gutfeld was the spark and catalyst for much of the delightful madness, and the show can't possibly be the same without him.
This is, as Gutfeld himself would say, clear evidence that Obama should be impeached.
