10 of the Most Painful Joe Biden Gaffes

Yesterday at Houston's NAACP rally, Vice President Joe Biden gave a well-received speech arguing that a Mitt Romney presidency would hurt the black community. As expected, the audience liked him a lot more than Romney, who got booed during his appearance last week for his opposition to Obamacare. People only booed Biden when he decided to wrap up his speech.

But the event also produced this weird YouTube video (see above) wherein Biden makes a fool of himself while giving an over-the-top shout-out to a friend named "Mouse" in the Delaware delegation. It fits right in with his long and sordid history of gaffes, which is either endearing or disgraceful depending on your opinion of him. Here's a look back at his finest moments.
