Joe's Joke, John's Jest: Chill

Some people are a bit peeved about Joe Biden’s “joke” about his wife Jill on Saturday. Okay, folks, how is this:

"Ladies and gentlemen, my wife Jill, who you'll meet soon, is drop dead gorgeous," said Biden.

"She also has her doctorate degree, which is a problem," he added. "

Worse than this:

“I told her with a little luck that [Cindy McCain] could be the only woman to serve as First Lady and Miss Buffalo Chip,” Mr. McCain told the crowd, as his wife waved to them.

According to ESPN, the Miss Buffalo Chip competition “is essentially a topless beauty pageant. And occasionally bottomless, too.”

Yes, men make jokes about their wives, and sometimes those jokes are inappropriate. Pelosi’s right on this one, people. Get a grip. There are real things to get bent out of shape over.
