I was going to write” Here we go again,” but I’ve already updated twice.  I‘m referring, obviously, to Vice President Biden, who once again–still?–shot off his mouth and gave Americans advice on firearms and self protection that was not only entirely false, but would be extremely likely to put anyone taking it in prison for a very long time.  The primary point of this post is to encourage you, gentle readers, to once again visit Gun Values Board where an article I began at the end of January on Mr. Biden’s bizarre gun advice has now been updated for the third time, and updated to the point that it’s essentially a new article.  It may be worth your time.

But for your amusement, and to reassure you that the nation is in the best of hands, I present a brief list of Mr. Biden’s more famous (infamous?) gaffes, gaffes that if committed by a Republican, would surely be front page news and endlessly repeated.  From Political Humor: 

“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, I could be, I could be Vice President!’ –Joe Biden, campaigning in Youngstown, Ohio, May 16, 2012

‘His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she’s- wait- your mom’s still- your mom’s still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.’ –Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010

‘If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.’ –Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009

‘Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.’ –Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008

‘When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’ –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn’t president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008

‘A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!’ –Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama after being announced as his running mate, Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008

And my favorite:

Stand up, Chuck, let ’em see ya.’ –-Joe Biden [in the midst of a campaign rally], to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008

Oh well.  It’s not like he has an important job or something…
