VP Joe Biden pulled a Jesse Jackson today and said something colorful with a mic on. According to this article Oh, That Joe! (No. 48 in a Series) -- Gimme a Break Biden dropped the F bomb when he thought a mic was off.
Personally I don't care what he says. In my line of work this is often used as a greeting. I have sat and listened to a drunk man repeat it over and over again for an hour and a half straight. So, needless to say, I'm not a real sensitive person.
My only real point here is that a VP has used this word so we can all assume the media will talk about nothing else for the next 2 weeks and the late night "comedians" will beat it to death for a month. Right? I mean, that's what they've done in the past.
