Best Political Joke Ever

I've always liked Joe Biden. Back in 88 I was super bummed when that whole Kinnock thing went down. And yes, he's got a BBBBBIIIIIIIIGGGGGGG mouth, and he's said some bad things. But on many policy issues, especially including con law and foreign policy, he's a serious guy with plenty to offer. I'm sure the mouth, and the sometimes horrible things that come out of it, will make me reconsider this statement more than once before November 4, but overall I think Biden's a solid pick.

Now that I've said that, let me paraphrase/quote the best political joke I ever heard, which came out in the wake of Biden's withdrawal from the 88 campaign. I don't remember who said it (5 points to anyone who finds out). And if you didn't live through the 80s in at least a semi-conscious-of-current-events kind of way, you won't appreciate it. But enough. Here it is:

Have you heard about Joe Biden's new autobiography? Iacocca!
Update: Plus, I forgot to note that my mother in law once went on a date with Joe Biden. How bout them apples?

Joe Biden is so poor... How poor is he? He's so poor that ranks his wealth at number 108 out of all 100 U.S. Senators.

...and he only has one house.

Obama and Biden make a great team. My only other hope is that McCain will pick Romney!!! What a gift that would be for the Democrats.
