Photos: Joe Biden Unleashed

In early March, Team Obama announced it had decided to "release the Biden": The pugnacious, filter-free VP would be returning to the campaign trail. Soon after, the campaign posted this photo to their website next to the headline "Welcome Joe back to the trail":




Yep. That's the 47th vice president of the United States at a 2012 campaign event, acting out a one-liner from CSI: Miami. Or preparing to gun down a yak from 200 yards away with the power of his mind bullets. Or simply striking a pose that might be described as "Bidening." The Internet jubilantly had its way with the image. Grist blogger David Roberts dubbed it the most "Joe Biden-y" photo ever taken.

Here are some more photos of Joe Biden being Biden—or at least doing a pretty good impression of The Onion version of himself:





Best VP Ever! Joe.

7. I really like this one, too

I know the RWers tried to make hay out of him laughing during the debate with Ryan, but laughter is the only response Ryan's bullshit deserved. VP Biden chewing Ryan up and spitting him out was quite a thing to see. Go, Joe!

22. Joe Biden's 1988 aneurysm caused the Pseudobulbar affect

"Laughing at inappropriate times" This was the RW answer to baby Paulie getting his intellect kicked in the teeth.

27. They also tried to claim he was drunk and/or has dementia

The RW media tried anything and everything they could to bring VP Biden down and minimize the brutal ass-kicking their man got--anything but accept that Joe "Happy Warrior" Biden made mincemeat out of the smarmy, lipless weasel the amoral vulture capitalist picked to be his veep. Seriously, he was supposed to be their "policy wonk" and a "numbers man," yet he couldn't talk about what Romney's policies would be or what their numbers actually were?!?

I loved watching him in the debate. After Pres. Obama's overly-subdued first outing, it was more than a little heartening to see Joe come out swinging.

I can almost hear Ryan whispering to himself, "Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid. He can smell fear! Don't be afraid...."

Joe Biden destroyed that two bit moron - he schooled him and made him look like a little uninformed upstart

This is one of the most cordial, intimate and trusting.

It says a lot about both men - and their families.

Didn't realize they allowed gingers that close to the President & VP.

For the jury, both of my kids and myself are gingers, I'm not a gingervitist.
