Biden tells table of Greek diners “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos”

A couple weeks ago our intrepid VP was benched for, as far as I can tell, opening his mouth and doing what comes naturally to him. Thankfully, that benching didn’t last long and good ole “Chains” was back at it again today:

Approaching a table of men he knew to be Greek, the VP said, “I’m Joe Bidenopoulos.”

“Ask George,” he said – unclear who George was, maybe someone at the table –“who’s the most Greek Irishman he’s ever known.” Sounded like Biden was suggesting he is.

He moved on to a table of three women, sitting down briefly, before moving on to one where two women were sitting.

“Let’s dance,” he said to one, named Jennifer, as she stood up right next to him. They posed for a photo before he turned to her tablemate, who was wearing scrubs, and asked, ‘Are you a nurse?” He then sat down and started speaking to her quietly, presumably about nurses.

Then, he posed with a group of restaurant staff and owners, and was talking about Greek food and rice pudding.

“Can I get some rice pudding to go?” he asked, just before the pool was ushered out at 1:05 p.m. Now holding in van.

I’m guessing “George” is George Stephanopoulos, but with Biden anything’s possible.  We have ten more weeks of Biden on the campaign trail to look forward to.  Unless he gets benched again, that is. Hopefully that won’t be the case, and we’ll be treated to many more campaign appearances like this. Blogging just wouldn’t be the same without him.
