Biden the Blunderful strikes again…

or, “When is Obama Going to Learn to Keep his Veep Away From the Mic?”

Joe Biden just doesn’t get it. You’re at a LIVE press conference, you’ve just intro’d the POTUS, then you whisper to him, “This is a big fuckin’ deal” (or something like that).

Um, hello, Joe: hot mics, dude.

One of the first things I learned in broadcasting school was that you have to assume the mics are hot (or on), especially if you don’t know if they are. Biden doesn’t seem to understand that. He’s made blunders in speeches before, but he’s never dropped the F-bomb.

My friend Vincent and I had this discussion this afternoon about this. And yes, we’ve both dropped F-bombs (not necessarily during this conversation), but we’re not on the air, either. If we’d done what Biden did, the FCC would fine us so fast, the word would be barely out of our mouths!

Vincent
Biden dropping F bombs?

Stephanie
LOL yeah

Vincent
I hate idiot politicians

Stephanie
Biden doesn’t get the concept that if there’s a mic around, assume it’s hot!

and keep yer mouth shut!

Vincent
Ha ha isn’t that broadcasting 101

Stephanie
no kidding, right? LOL

I think they go over that the first day!

Vincent
Pretty damn close to it!

Stephanie
LOL

Maybe Biden should have to take the [broadcasting] course

before he insults some prime minister or someone important

Vincent
I think all political figures need to take an idiocy test! If they fail they are automatically be ineligible to hold office

Stephanie
if that were the case there’d be no one in the government!

Vincent
I wonder if the FCC will fine him 100 GRAND just for being a dumb ass

Stephanie
maybe if the FCC fined him he’d get the message that you can’t assume the mics are off

and the mics are never off…they’re always hot. That’s why it’s called broadcasting!

Vincent
They should fine him ….

Just for being a idiot!

Stephanie
they’re not going to put the VP in jail for being an idiot…or dropping f bombs…he’ll probably get a warning…

Vincent
He should get fined at least! You or I or anyone else would! He should be held to a higher standard being a idiot vp

Stephanie
He should be held to a higher standard because he’s the VP, whether or not he’d an idiot.

Vincent
Well true but he Is an idiot!

Stephanie
I’d love to hear the audio on that! Without the bleeps…

Vincent
YouTube!

I dunno just an idea

Stephanie
YouTube has everything! LOL
Vincent
May have that! I haven’t checked

Stephanie
I haven’t either…

Vincent
I think we need to protest!

Stephanie
I found one!

Vincent
Nice

Vincent
Ummm ok

Stephanie
He conveniently forgot he was on LIVE F’N TV?!

Vincent
Ha ha

I just listened to it

Dear Mr. Vice President of the United States: ALWAYS assume the mics are on! That way you won’t embarrass yourself or Mr. Obama when you say something no one else should hear. Thank you– Stef from Oklahoma

What I want to know is… WHY is THIS NEWS?! So Biden inserted foot (A) into mouth (B) again. This isn’t news as far as I’m concerned. We’ve all heard the word, and we know you can’t say it on TV or on the radio. But it happens so much that it’s not news anymore, even when the VP does it.

This is how desensitized we’ve become to that word. It doesn’t even shock me anymore.

It’s sad, really.

That’s Where It’s @ !~
