Vice President Joe Biden visited a Milwaukee custard shop this past weekend. After tasting his cone, he asks the manager how much he owes him, and the manager jokes that if Biden will lowers taxes they’ll call it even.
Rather than laugh it off as a joke, Biden walks away without word and later asks the manager why has to be a smartass. Immediately you can see the VPs handlers shooing media out of the shop.
Nice behavior from the nation’s second in command.
If this were Dick Cheney making a stupid comment in his role at VP, the nightly news outlets would be running it as the lead story. Let’s see if they treat Biden the same way.
