Well, it took until Friday to find the perfect Quote of the Week winner, but true to form Vice President Biden came through in the clutch.

During a speech to the National Association of Community Health Centers in Washington, D.C., where he thanked the group for advocating for Obamacare, Biden went off on a tangent about raising daughters.

“Now, think about this,” he said. “All you guys have had grown daughters. One night, when they’re about 12 1/2 years old, you tuck this beautiful little butterfly in bed. And the next morning, you walk in, there’s a snake in the bed.”

Biden continued by citing examples of how poorly daughters treat their fathers in their teenage years, adding, “All you women — you all come back to your dad somewhere between age 20 and 24.”

Oh Joe, you never disappoint.
