Either that, or Robert Gibbs added 'et' onto that second word there...
White House Press Secretary Roberts Gibbs on Monday called Vice President Biden an "enormous asset to the administration," insisting that the loose-lipped No. 2 is not a distraction even after the State Department had to walk back his thorny comments on Russia.Emphasis obviously mine.
Let's take a look at what Pluggy said that is raising such a brouhaha:
"I think we vastly underestimate the hand that we hold," Biden said during an interview with The Wall Street Journal at the end of his trip to Georgia and Ukraine. "Russia has to make some very difficult, calculated decisions. They have a shrinking population base, they have a withering economy, they have a banking sector and structure that is not likely to be able to withstand the next 15 years, they're in a situation where the world is changing before them and they're clinging to something in the past that is not sustainable."Is this like the strategy to pick up chicks at a bar by giving them what sounds like a compliment but is really an insult?

[Warren] Buffett has agreed to lend his voice for a cartoon version of himself in a series called the Secret Millionaire's Club. Each episode will be three to five minutes long.
"What better time to help educate our kids about financial responsibility," Mr Buffett said of the series which will be produced by a company called A Squared and is one of four new programmes the company is making.
Yeah. What better time, huh? Asshole.
Oh, and get this, from an interview promoting the new cartoon:
"Ten years from now the dollar will buy a lot less than it buys now," he said. "It will be the consequence of what we're doing now. It doesn't mean what we're doing now is wrong at all."
Yeah, I guess it's pretty easy to say that when you've still got, you know, billions of those fucking devalued dollars to spend. When you're a middle class family, maybe not so much.
Anybody who listens to this guy ever again is a fucking fool.

Someone make sure to wake me up in three and a half years, m'kay?

I'm thinking each and every conservative humor blogger needs to apply for this position. With that many applications, it's quite likely that they'll accidentally hire one of you funny guys.
I was hoping someone had posted the link here, but it's not, so I"m going OT (yeah, I should get my own freaking blog).
I'm sure you've all seen how they're looking for a "humor in the workplace" expert at Treasury.
Do you realize what they're actually doing is looking for a "Funniest End of Civilization Ever" Czar?
Finally, a useful czar.

Yeah, you would probably ask about something like that. But if you happened to be a Democrat Senator from Minnesota who was intent on playing cutesy-poo with Barack Obama's first Supreme Court pick, you'd probably go in a different direction.
(And the fact that I'm not even talking about Al Fucking Franken here just reinforces my inclination to take off and nuke the entire state from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.)
