Okay, okay, I know we're the only people in America (I shouldn't say "we" — it's just me, Intel editor Chris) who think that Joe Biden and Sarah Palin were exuding some sexual energy during their vice-presidential debate in October. But seriously, the flirtation continues. At a governors conference today in Philadelphia, Biden and President-elect Barack Obama showed up. Biden read from some prepared remarks, but strayed at one point when speaking about Sarah Palin. This is what he was supposed to say:
"And Governor Palin, your being here today sends a powerful message that when campaigns end, we are all partners in progress. Thank you."
But this is what he actually said:
"And Governor Palin, I want to thank you particularly. I might point out, as I told you, we walked in. Since the race is over, no one pays attention to me at all. So I'm — maybe you will walk outside with me or something later and say hello to me ... It's great to see you, Governor. And, by the way, I think it is — I hope, you know, the whole country can see the sort of a metaphor for the fact that this election is over and here we are. We're all together."
Okay, if that is not hilarious, awkward flirtation of the Dan-and-Serena variety, then we just don't know what is.
