You know, after Tuesday, I think that conservatives need a laugh. I may have gotten out of the doldrums relatively early, but I know many of you haven’t, so I wanted to quickly re-post two of my favorite videos from this election cycle.
I know, I know … it’s hard to find humor in Obama’s victory. But these two videos should be enough to elicit a chuckle.
First, we have Vice President-elect Joseph Biden telling a disabled, wheelchair-bound state lawmaker to “stand up.” Joe Biden’s propensity to stick his entire leg in his mouth certainly did not disappoint this year, and with regard to this particular incident, while the recovery is admirable, the initial look on his face is absolutely priceless. I cannot watch this without laughing, and I’ve seen it a hundred times.
Second, we have surveillance video from the yard of a North Carolina electrical engineer who, sick and tired of having his McCain/Palin yard signs stolen and replaced with Obama/Biden signs, decided to hook the metal frame into his invisible dog fence. While it’s sad that the person caught in the act was only a nine-year-old boy, he invariably learned a lesson he wasn’t going to learn elsewhere.
