The Stepford anchor

This Joe Biden interview on Thursday with Barbara West, an Orlando TV anchorwoman, is absolutely hee-larious. She quotes Karl Marx!

Biden reacts like he’s on “Candid Camera”... he cannot fricking believe what’s happening. (Hat-tip: Huffington Post.)

That was a wonderful bit of talking point regurgitation by the bubble headed bleach blond. Absolutely qualifies her for a ride on the Maverick train. Go get her Johnny Boy.

you have to post this, how nicely she interviews mccain.

instead of attacking him, she just lets him attack his critics.

Who was that heffa? I wish they had been in the same studio, so Biden could have tripped her when the cameras were off.

Holy crap.

I am fortunate enough to be an anchor (gotta make a living!) and my boss would have had my stuff waiting for me in a box by the time that farce of an interview was finished.

But hey, that's what happens when you drink the McCain/Palin koolaid.

Biden handled himself well.

Ha! Ms. West seems hilariously uninformed and woefully imperceptive (and also, kind of robotic). I wonder how much she mirrors the American people?

It's amazing how many Americans are susceptible to scary-sounding words. I wonder how many rally-goers calling Obama a socialist or a Marxist truly understand the meanings of those terms.

I couldn't stop laughing along with Biden. I agree, he handles himself very well.

Wow, I've got a whole new respect for Biden. I'd like to say that the heffa got schooled but she probably wasn't really listening. None of the wingnuts do unless you're saying something they already agree with. Wonder if she'll need anesthesia when she gets that pole removed from her butt.

I don't know who's writing your questions!!!!! LMAO I love it.


3:35 on the video! CLASSIC!

Holy shit.
I really want to know who was writing her questions...talk about giving free press to the wackos.

I agree with Secret - her responses were extremely bizarre - she didn't even react half the time. Like she was basically just there to make the free extreme anti-Obama statements without even really caring about the answers.....

His answers seemed a bit too talking-pointish for me, but they weren't bad.

I agree with Days Like These. I loved how Biden asked who was writing her questions! Ouch! I have to admire Biden for not telling her to F off.

^ My favorite was when he said "Is this a joke? Is that a real question?" I think he really meant that! He thought somebody was pulling a prank.

"Is this a joke?" That is why I love the Joe Biden pick as VP. He is like an exposed nerve and he balances Obama's steady hand. He wou've goten my vote if he was the Dem nominee.
