Whatever Became Of Hubert Biden?

You know things are bad as a Western Infidel when even Osama doesn’t think you’re worth targeting

US officials have revealed that Osama bin Laden’s diaries contain the rather startling conclusion that he didn’t think Vice President Joe Biden was worth bumping off (hat tip: a tweet from my New York colleague Jon Swaine).

According to ProPublica, the Obama administration is briefing that Barack Obama was bin Laden’s the “top target” (no surprise there) while “military chiefs like the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the defense secretary” were also major scalps.

But Joe Biden’s scalp (hair plugs and all)? Apparently, not so much. A counterterrorism official said: “There is a note indicating that the vice president is not an important target because that position has less weight.”

A far cleverer fellow than I wrote a song about this very topic.

    I love how they salvage Joe’s pride at the end there:

    “There is a note indicating that the vice president is not an important target because that position has less weight.”

    It’s not the MORON IN it, mind you, that has any bearing on whether it’s “bump-off” worthy or not. Thanks for the clarification, ’cause all this time I thought people had a very different take on the POWER of the office when Darth Cheney was Vice-President…

    OBL probably thought that Biden becoming President would be a good thing for Islamic terrorists everywhere. God knows he would be a disaster as President.

    PS: Yeah, Sis, ain’t it amazing how values change when a Demonrat occupies a particular position?

    Maybe OBL kept confusing Biden with Bidet. The english language can be confusing at times.

    Naw Yojimbo,OBL wouldn’t know about that, what do they ever wash? Joe Biden president, can you imagine? The First Doofus, heck even the leftards couldn’t argue with that.

    Thanks for that link. A Tom Lehrer I’d never heard before. You do know that lovable rotter is still alive but NOT SINGING anymore. Sigh. I miss him, I really do. “Christmas time is here, by golly, disapproval would be folly, deck the halls with hunks of holly…”

    The man has kept me sane through countless (retail/wholesale) Christmas seasons.

    (Please note, I have no objection to religious observance of Christmas. It’s the “Hark the Herald Tribune sings, Advertising wondrous things…” that makes me go all “Bah Humbug!”

    I MISS Tom Lehrer.
