Joe Biden can do everything George Washington ever did, but with aviators and without the silly hat.
Good thing Joe Biden is able to laugh at himself, because the Obama reelection team is ready to put him out there to be laughed at. With the vice president heading out Thursday for what was billed as his first major stump speech of the 2012 campaign, the Obama website rolled out a truly majestic photo of the man from Scranton, aviators donned, leg hiked up, glance far away (scanning for trains, probably).
The image begged for PhotoShopping, and Ben Dimiero obliged. This composite answers the age-old question, how did Joe Biden get out of Delaware before Amtrak?
(Yes, historical sticklers, we know that Washington was actually crossing the Delaware from Pennsylvania into New Jersey. We also know that Joe, though an elder statesman, isn't that old. Let us have our fun.)
