Joe Biden Gets Drudge Love And Laughs For 'Big Stick' Comment: VIDEO


Conservative aggregator Matt Drudge abandoned panic and sensation for a moment today and instead went with double entendre when linking to video of Vice President Joe Biden saying President Obama has a "big stick" and will be aggressive in negotiations with Iran.

Drudge can't be blamed for partaking in some puerile humor. Who wouldn't? Biden's comments begged for a chuckle, as they're wont to do. And NBC News reports that even Biden's audience laughed, which apparently inspired Biden to offer another suggestive remark:

Biden, notorious for his gaffes, said when it comes to Iran policy, it was time to heed the timeless advice of Theodore Roosevelt,  to "speak softly and carry a big stick."

"I promise you, the president has a big stick," Biden said.

The bizarre choice of words elicited giggles from his audience and spread quickly on Twitter after it was tweeted by political reporters. About 500 people were in the audience, mostly NYU students.

Biden also got some laughs when he described Obama's decisiveness.
"This guy's got a backbone like a ramrod. For real. For real," he said.

Hey, the man knows his audience.

ABC News Pushes Drudge's Gay-Baiting of Janet Napolitano


Remember when Matt Drudge was gay-baiting Janet Napolitano back in January?

Well, as the Huffington Post notes, ABC News is now pushing Drudge's suggestion that Janet Napolitano's leadership is questionable because she's allegedly a lesbian.

Writes Devin Dwyer in the lede of an article about Napolitano: "The former Arizona governor, dubbed 'Big Sis' by one conservative blogger, oversees more than 188,000 civilian employees, 200,000 contractors and an amalgam of 20 subagencies, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Coast Guard and the Transportation Security Administration."
