Leslie Knope Finally Meets Her Celeb Crush, Joe Biden

“It was a real honor that in my sitcom debut I got to meet someone like Leslie Knope, who believes so deeply in public service. She’s an example for men and women across the country that there’s no higher calling than helping other people. On a personal note, I’ll never figure out how Leslie Knope got my home phone number, but that really just shows how committed she is.”

Vice President Joe Biden expresses his delight about making a cameo on “Parks and Recreation” alongside Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope, who has an infamous crush on him. As Leslie explained last season, “Joe Biden is on my celebrity sex list–well, he is my celebrity sex list.” Excited to see the pair’s sexual chemistry in action? Biden’s episode airs November 15th. [Photo: Entertainment Weekly; Quote: NYT]

"I'm not going to interfere with that."

Towards the end of last night’s extremely entertaining (I thought) Vice Presidential Debate, moderator Martha Raddatz asked Joe Biden and Paul Ryan the following question:

“We have two Catholic candidates, first time on a stage such as this, and I would like to ask you both to tell me what role your religion has played in your own personal views on abortion. Please talk about how you came to that decision. Talk about how your religion played a part in that. And please, this is such an emotional issue for so many people in this country. Please talk personally about this if you could.”

Obama And Biden Address The Nation About Violence Against Women

I know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But the 10th month of the year is another time for reflection on an issue that doesn’t get quite the attention it deserves: Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Frisky has been re-posting some of our past content by our contributor Judy McGuire, a domestic abuse survivor, but we were pleased to see it’s being addressed on a national level, as well.

Today at the White House, Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama made remarks about violence against women, which I’ve transcribed a bit after the jump: Keep reading »

Why I Don’t Want Hillary Clinton For Vice President

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may trade places with Vice-President Joe Biden on the 2012 election ticket, veteran journalist Bob Woodward said yesterday. “President Obama needs some of the women, Latinos, retirees that she did so well with during the 2008 primaries,” Woodward told CNN yesterday, adding that the switcheroo is “on the table.” Did Woodward pull this speculation out of his ass? Who knows. But if Hillary Clinton did run as Obama’s #2 and he was re-elected, she would become the first-ever female VP in history.

You know what? As cool as it would be to have a woman as VP, I don’t want Hillary Clinton to run. Keep reading »

Joe Biden Criticized For Overtly Sexual Hennessy Ads, Kinda


It truly hurts how painfully awesome The Onion continues to be, and their spoof videos are even better than their articles since they require the reporters to keep a straight face while delivering the news. In this week’s spoof, Vice President Joe Biden got a lot of crap for starring in sexy Hennessy ads. According to a faux Hennessy spokesman, “Biden’s sly trademark grin and international playboy status made him the perfect face for the luxury brand.” Word. I think it’s about time Joe “Silver Fox” Biden gets a little attention; Obama isn’t the only hottie in Washington D.C.! [The Onion]
