• Did Joe Biden Just Admit to Being the “Chickensh*t” Culprit?

    When it was first reported that someone inside the Obama White House had anonymously referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickenshit,” I surmised that it was either Joe Biden or John Kerry. And judging from the vice president’s remarks this morning, I’m leaning towards Team Joe.

    I signed a picture for Bibi a long time ago. I have a bad habit of—no one ever doubts I mean what I say; sometimes I say all that I mean, though—and I signed a picture a long time for Bibi,” Biden said. “He’s been a friend for over 30 years. I said, ‘Bibi I don’t agree with a damn thing you say, but I love you.’

    It’s hard to know exactly what to make of Biden’s latest remark. Was this a gaffe? A joke? Or a clearing of his conscience? If it was anything but the latter, he certainly picked a crummy time to joke about the state of relations between America and Israel, seeing as how they’re currently at an all-time low. He also picked a terrible location for the supposed “joke,” as the speech was sponsored by the Jewish Federation…and there clearly wasn’t much laughter.

    Still, tell that to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, who obviously thought the whole thing was hilarious:

    Classic Joe Biden”? Not quite, but Andrea was seemingly getting gooseys. “Joe Biden knows how to work and massage these supporters like no one else,” she proclaimed. Sounds like she’d like to receive a “massage” of her own from Joey.

    Just before his questionable comment, Biden prefaced the anecdote by addressing Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer, who was in the audience. “You better damn well report to Bibi that we’re still buddies,” he sarcastically demanded.

    They say all good humor is rooted in the truth. Being the frequent jokester that he is, I suppose that makes Joe Biden the best truth-teller the Obama administration has. We still don’t know exactly who called Netanyahu “chickenshit,” but the suspects are certainly coming into focus.
