Which Joe Biden Will Show Tonight? Hopefully The One From The Onion
"Sensual, powerful, Biden."
So says The Onion. Vice President Joe Biden has been quite possibly the most-parodied man over the last four years. Gregarious, toothy, and with that "Hey-just-call-me-Joe" air about him, he's been the exact opposite of Obama, who's brains and little fire. Biden, meanwhile, is all emotion. Last month at the Democratic National Convention, he emoted all over the nation amid a spectacularly over-the-top speech involving his semi-creepy unrelenting fealty to Obama.
This sort of brazen confidence and swagger has made Biden a wildly easy target. And so, in honor of tonight's debates between Biden and Paul Ryan, let the parodies begin!

The rationale: " 'You know what, given the context of this particular debate and everything, I think maybe it's best to avoid using the words 'pink' or 'stink' at all, and certainly never in the same sentence,' " Joe was told.
"At press time, sources said Biden had assured (him) he would do his best, but couldn't guarantee he wouldn't "pop wood" at some point during the debate."
