“Don’t screw around with me!” shouts our clean, articulate vice president to Human Events’ Jason Mattera, who confronted the vice president on his eliminationist rhetoric. Like Maureen Dowd, I’m pretty sure I heard an unspoken “boy” at the end of Biden’s sentence as well:
Vice President Joe Biden now says he didn’t make a reference to rape, and got testy with HUMAN EVENTS when we asked if he would like to retract his comments that the number of sexual assaults would increase if Republicans don’t sign on to Barack Obama’s latest “jobs” proposal.
“I didn’t use, no no no…Let’s get it straight, guy. Don’t screw around with me,” Biden lashed out at HUMAN EVENTS. Then Biden confirmed that he indeed did talk about rape in terms of the President’s spending measure. “Murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, all crimes will continue to rise,” if the Democrats agenda isn’t passed, he added.
It was on Tuesday during a speech at the University of Pennsylvania where Biden initially argued that another round of government spending was needed to prevent sexual assaults. “It’s not temporary [administration’s proposed stimulus] when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped, if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape. It’s not temporary to that woman.” Then in the same speech he wished Republicans were themselves rape victims. “I wish they had some notion of what it was like to be on the other side of a gun, or [to have] a 200-pound man standing over you, telling you to submit.”
Especially when it’s all Bush’s fault, to begin with, Joe adds.
Actually though, that’s the sort of thing that numerous distaff members of Occupy Wall Street have been complaining about, according to local news sources. Naturally of course, he MSM are more concerned that such accusations could hurt OWS’s sterling reputation.
“I don’t seem to recall the media leaping to this possibility in other cases of alleged rape,” Ace of Spades writes. “I don’t remember the media being at all skeptical of Crystal Gayle Mangum, for example.”
