It’s funny, in the least funny of ways, how a week that began in unspeakable tragedy unfolded into one filled with so much absurdity and journalistic malpractice, along with a truly bizarre string of unrelated events, that the actual news was often so frankly guffaw-inducing that The Onion would have a hard time topping it.

Back in October, the Duffel Blog — which is a satirical site, sort of a military-minded version of The Onion — put up a post stating that Guantanamo prisoners were to receive G.I. Bill benefits. And guess what? One of Senator Mitch McConnell’s constituents (a person who like Shapiro is stupid or mendacious or both) reported it as fact to McConnell’s office, which in turn forwarded the note to DoD on the assumption it was fact.

We all know Vice President Joe Biden as the street smart, wisecracking, blue-collared right hand of President Barack Obama. We all know the well-worn public persona: the dedicated family man who spent four hours a day during his Senate tenure shlepping to and from Wilmington, Delaware to be with his offspring, instead of shacking up with a group of fellow politicos in a deluxe Georgetown brownstone, going home on alternate weekends to gladhand with campaign donors. And yes, we all know Joe Biden as the GILF fantasy of women from Bangor to Bangalore, and probably in Europe, too. He’s approachable, he’s funny, he’s smart, he drives a white Trans Am, and he’s dead sexy. He’s Joe Biden.
But there’s so much we didn’t know about the current Veep…until now.

How do you parody people who are already caricatures?

When I was a kid, I used to love double-dips. I’d go to the doctor and afterwards, we’d stop by the drug store soda fountain for my free ice cream. Summers, there would be all the ice cream suppers at the churches with fresh home made ice cream and cake. Double-dips of chocolate ice cream and cake!
Unfortunately however, today’s double-dip will be a recession.
