The Gold Medal for Flip-flopping Goes To…

Jooooooe Biiiiiiiden, (D), currently running for the office of Vice-President of the United States.

<Crowd Noise>

Announcer one: “Well Ted, I gotta say, I have been watching this game for a long time and I don’t think that I have ever seen this kind of speed by a candidate. The way he literally changed his public position overnight must be some kind of record!”

Announcer two: “Right you are, Kenny. Most candidates take advantage of a cooling off period in hopes that the video of their past statements could be lost, misquoted, or even nuanced out of public view. But not this guy, no sir. He has the guts to stand up and lie to the face of one group of people one night and then lie to the media about what he said the very next morning. You gotta be impressed with that kind of dedication.”

A1: “You said it, Ted. It reminds me of the time Barry Obama tried to sweet talk the voters in the East and then turned around and called them a bunch of religious zealot gun nuts in San Francisco.”

A2: “Really, Ken, you have to admire this whole campaign team. It’s not just any team that can go from publicly flogging their own country to a seven year old girl at a rally to setting up a Greek temple and saying ‘Yes we can’ without any hint of self-awareness showing.”

A1: “But this particular event takes the cake, Ted. I mean telling a campaign rally full of cameras that you and your running mate are planning on prosecuting the current administration if you get elected, kinda of like they used to do under the old Communist regime of the Soviet Union…”

A2: “Funny story about old communists, Ken…”

A1: “Hold that thought, Ted. Planning on prosecuting the current regime when you take office and THEN turning right around and saying you had no such plans on a national cable news show is just a brilliant display of showmanship. That is the kind of thing you might expect someone to say if they were talking about nationalizing oil companies or something.”

A2: “Funny story about old communists and nationalizing oil companies, Ken…”

A1: “Sorry, Ted, there’s no more time for this broadcast. Folks, tune in later for more political Olympic coverage with Dan and Benny as they cover the two hundred meter individual medley.”

A2: “Yeah Ken, I hear Barry is planning on doing that one without even getting wet. Thanks for tuning in folks. Good night from all of us here at the Candidate Olympic Village.”
