The Sad Right Wing Conspiracy That Biden Was Drunkon October 12, 2012 at 9:55 pm
In their attempt to turn attention away from the debate, Fox News has decided to create their own conspiracy theory. On a special edition of the Sean Hannity Show, Sean Hanntiy questioned whether the vice-president was drinking bourbon before the debate.
Hannity: I noticed that you guys were giving away bourbon to people over here.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY): It’s the home of bourbon.
Hannity: I wonder if Joe had some before the debate.
Taking to their Twitter accounts, multiple Fox News hosts continued the “Biden is drunk” theme.
@ericbolling - MrVO is interrupting and laughing.. Is he drinking? #AA
@greggutfeld - Biden is the drunk at the bar, Martha is the unhappy bartender, and Ryan is the unfortunate salesman caught in the middle.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee furthered the conspiracy during a morning show on Fox News.
“(Biden) came across like a guy you meet at a cocktail party or some political event, an obnoxious drunk who’s loud and boisterous and interrupts every conversation… He just is the kind of guy you want to get away from as quickly as you can and go find someone else to talk to. It was just boorish behavior for the first half”
Sure, let’s pretend that Biden was a rip roaring drunk. All that means is that Paul Ryan, wunderkind of the GOP, hopeful future Vice President that would be only one heartbeat away from the most powerful position in the world, had circles run around him by an “obnoxious drunk.” On national TV, no less! Yeah, that really speaks to Ryan’s ability to step into the president’s shoes in an emergency.
Go for it, right wing! Push that meme for all it’s worth! I’m begging you!
