Biden, whose idea of patriotism is higher taxes, especially if you’re Catholic, has now come up with a double lie in one showing:
Joe claims he’s clutching his Beretta even when so enthusiastic about gun control that he was eager to lie about his role in the assault weapons ban:
And he’ll have you believe that he’s a hard coal miner
Biden took the stage atop a sunny hilltop above Virginia coal country and told the crowd, “Hope you won’t hold it against me, but I am a hard coal miner — anthracite coal. Scranton, Pennsylvania, that’s where I was born and raised.”
Brian‘s come up with the best comment:
Well, Joe Biden’s just gone up a notch in my estimation! A ‘hard coal miner.’ I can’t help but wonder whether Biden stole away from his family to work in the mines before he left Scranton at age 10. (If so, I want to talk to him about his views on child labor laws.) Or perhaps he worked in the mines during his summers away from Law school — to help pay the bills. Or maybe Biden’s family were coal miners — though his Wikipedia bio says his father was a car salesman, and his grandfather an elected official.
Brian thinks Biden was chanelling Zoolander, but I think Joe’s watched too may reruns of the classic tearjerking coal miner classic movie, How Green Was My Valley.
