The Unbearable Lightness of Hope

Is Biden softening us up for that horrific day that’s coming soon when we realize our gas won’t be free, radical Islamists still hate us and our mortgage payment is still be due?

Say it ain’t so, Joe:

Vice President-elect Joe Biden is worried about the “exceedingly high expectations” the world community has for Barack Obama’s presidency.

Wow, it’s getting so a politician can’t even promise to deliver world peace, free health care, great paying jobs for little work and cute little cartoon bluebirds that poop government checks while whistling “Shiny happy people” anymore without everybody ending up expecting it to actually happen.

After the campaign Obama ran, anybody connected to his administration speaking of “overwhelming expectations” is like hearing Pamela Anderson complaining because her date tonight is expecting a blow job.

I wonder why people would expect so much, Joe?
