Joe Biden on the stump in Athens, Ohio:
“It’s good to be back in Athens. Now you say ‘Back in Athens, Biden, when were you here?’ Well I went to the University of Delaware and we came out here to play Ohio University. Now that was 228 years ago and we did just fine, but the thing I loved about the university was that it was such a beautiful town and we all hung around out afterwards.”
“Now I made a little mistake here that day, I made a little mistake.”
“I wandered in, I met this lovely group of Ohio University…students,” Biden said winkingly to laughs from the crowd.
“And uh, without knowing it, I shouldn’t admit this on national television because it’ll reveal that I’m over 60, but I thought that we were gonna go get something to eat. What’s that street you have down there, all you guys? See, I…and so I just said to young, two young women I had met, said well why don’t you…we’ll be right back, I said well I’ll come with you, and they said okay, and I walked into their dormitory and was immediately accosted by a cop who arrested me because back in those days men were not allowed in women’s dormitories.”
I like how when Joe Biden refers to his college days “228 years ago,” I don’t know if he meant to say that or not. As for the story itself, well here’s your opening to be bipartisan, Larry Flynt. Now that Nailin’ Paylin has wrapped, bring on Ridin’ Biden. Start with a football player, two co-eds, and a police officer. It should write itself.
