Sigmund Freud would have a field day with Joe Biden.
Most of the nation dismisses the Vice President as little more that our collective crazy uncle, and yet maybe Freud would analyze Biden as a dirty old man based on a recent string of suggestive lines.
In speaking to a college crowd last April the Veep got the students giggling when he said "I promise you the president has a big stick" in reference to Obama's muscle flexing in foreign affairs. And then yesterday to a group of high schoolers he waxed romantic about college cheerleaders, and said "the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind."
Of course, maybe we shouldn't make too much of the awkward lines; after all, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
Speaking of cigars, rumors are circulating that Monica Lewinsky may be shopping her memoirs to publishers which will include details of her steamy affair as a young intern in the Oval Office with President Clinton although "others say Lewinsky has no such plans" as reported by Molly Driscoll for The Christian Science Monitor.
