A Cupcake and a Very Happy Birthday to My Crush, Joe

"I was in the Oval Office the other day, and the President asked me what I would do about resignations. I said, 'Look, Mr. President, would I keep Rumsfeld? Absolutely not.' And I turned to Vice President Cheney, who was there, and I said, 'Mr. Vice President, I wouldn't keep you if it weren't constitutionally required.'

I turned back to the President and said, 'Mr. President, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld are bright guys, really patriotic, but they've been dead wrong on every major piece of advice they've given you. That's why I'd get rid of them, Mr. President---not just Abu Ghraib.' They said nothing. Just sat there like big old bullfrogs on a log and looked at me." ~ Joe Biden, Rolling Stone interview, June 2004

Fucking A. That's my Veep. And he's a Scorpio!

d i a n a m u s e, we should be celebrating together. Red Velvet cupcake, anyone? Happy Happy Birthday, Joe.

ps.: Cupcake photo swiped from that leftist liberal rag, the New York Times. Hey, at least they give you the recipe. Aw hell, I got the Biden photo there, too. I'm so transparent. (I read the International Herald Tribune sometimes too. But not The Economist. No one reads that except for Sarah Palin.)

Red velvet cake is maybe my favorite thing in the world. In fact it may have something to do with why I'm *not* very transparent!

the IHT IS the NYT. it used to also be the Boston Globe, but they bought them out a couple of years ago...just never seen any recipes there... :-(

aren't there too many big words in the economist for SP? and she never actually named it, did she?

love the excerpt of the interview...do you suppose he really said that? i would actually believe it.

I've always been a big fan of Joe's. So intelligent, so outspoken, so right (as in accurate, not leanings).

I'm relieved to learn that proper red velvet cake uses more cocoa than red dye number 2. I might actually indulge again. Maybe my daughter will make one for us :)

As for The Economist, we read it for the economic news and forecasts mostly, but I also like to read about the other side's perspective. You know what they say: "Know thy enemy". I even try to watch Fox once in a while. I have a contest with myself to see how long it takes before I ralph.

Thank you for all joining me in a little virtual cupcaking and birthday wishing activity!

Just think how we'll blow the roof off when it's Obama's birthday! Cupcakes will NOT be sufficient!
