Ouch: Biden Joke About Un-Sexiness of Late Ted Kennedy Bombs

Some days even I feel bad for Joe Biden.

Plugs performed a set of attempted comedy last night at the Radio & Television Correspondents Dinner.

One of his “jokes” was this about the arrival of Scott Brown: “This guy’s got a tough job filling the shoes of the sexiest man in the Senate.”

::crickets::

Did somebody forget to tell Joe that the “sexiest man in the Senate,” revered by Biden and his colleagues on the left, died not long ago? Friars Club style roasts tend to be a lot funnier if the roastee is sitting there laughing along and wasn’t buried in the ground recently. Somebody forgot to teach Biden that in clown college.

Get it straight, Joe: Ted’s dead, and the Irish Prime Minister’s mother is alive. I think you got mixed up.

Check out Jesse Jackson’s reaction at the :39 second mark (video kicks in just after a Tiger Woods “joke” that also went nowhere). Priceless:

Biden could have easily saved the set by going back to his classic material that’s a proven winner: “Stand up, Chuck!”
