Dennis Miller compares Biden to coffee: ‘Old and bitter’

 

CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Comedian Dennis Miller introduced Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a rally here Wednesday afternoon, cracking jokes about President Obama and Vice President Biden. Here are some of his laugh lines.

On Biden:

“I was just backstage in the holding room. I had the worst cup of coffee I have ever had in my life. I said to the lady, ‘What’s with this coffee? It is so old and bitter.’ She said, ‘That’s just Joe being Joe.’”

Miller said the coffee was actually great, but he wanted to “put it into Biden a little” because, he said, the vice president “just never shuts up.”

On Obama:

“I am starting to see people notice that it didn’t work out. I have friends who talk about voting for Obama in much the same way they tell me the story about how they took an Ambien and woke up naked outside…. Well, you voted for him. Oh, really? I took it. I went to bed. I woke up naked at the fridge eating Haagen-Dazs and I must have went and voted for him right after that. So I hold no rancor towards the man. It just doesn’t seem to be working out to me.”

The Democrats debated Thursday night. Get caught up on the race.
The Post's Chris Cillizza on the Democratic debate...
On Clinton: She poked a series of holes in Sanders's health-care proposal and broadly cast him as someone who talks a big game but simply can't hope to achieve his goals.

On Sanders: If the challenge was to show that he could be a candidate for people other than those who already love him, he didn't make much progress toward that goal. But he did come across as more well-versed on foreign policy than in debates past.

Fact Checker
Trump’s claim that his border wall would cost $8 billion
The billionaire's claim is highly dubious. Based on the costs of the Israeli security barrier (which is mostly fence) and the cost of the relatively simple fence already along the U.S.-Mexico border, an $8 billion price tag is simply not credible.
