Vice President Joe Biden drew parallels with the movie Deliverance while addressing a benefit dinner for a volunteer legal group that helps domestic violence survivors.

Biden’s daughter-in-law, Kathleen Biden, is a co-chair of the group. Calling him “Pop,” she introduced the veep to the crowd packed with even more Bidens.

According to the White House pool report, he peppered his speech with family stories and told the audience that his granddaughter implores him to stop referring to them as his daughters in public because “people will think something’s wrong.”

“All you women out there: Daughters are wonderful. Granddaughters are better,” Biden said. ”When they’re 12 to 14, a dad puts his beautiful little daughter to bed. And then the next morning, there’s a snake in the bed.”

Biden talked about his work in Congress on the Violence Against Women Act when he brought up the Deliverance reference.

“After those guys tied that one guy to the tree and raped him, man-raped him in the film, why didn’t the guy go the sheriff?” Biden asked. “They don’t want to get raped again by the system.”

Joe Biden is not only "impeachment insurance" for Barky O'bama, Biden is indeed, "assassination insurance" because even the most deranged and vile assassin would consider the prospect of "President Joe Biden" and then say to himself "nope, not gonna do NUTHIN to Obama, in fact I'm gonna find a gun buyback program somewhere and turn this thing in!"

Dear Mr. Vice President,

Are these underaged serpent-girls real, and is it possible to chat with some of them online?

One has to admire the quickness of Joe's trigger finger when he shoots himself in his foot, his foot spending so little time out of his mouth.

His trigger finger don't enter into it. He's a spray-n-pray machine gunner of bad rhetoric. I've heard he can say over 1,200 stupid things a minute.

Usually I can just shake my head and say "that's Joe Biden." But this is way over board.

The mouth is fully engaged, the brain is idling. What an embarrassing man he is.

Did he really say "man raped?"
