Biden: 'Girl-Girls are Tougher Than Girl-Boys'

One of the few things we'll miss from this, the longest campaign in the planet's history, is the nonstop gaffe machine that is Joe Biden.

And wouldn't you know it, the bumbling Biden came through with another doozy today during the final day on the trail.
Telling voters in this swing state that "change is on the way," the Democratic vice presidential candidate offered one of his now-expected random introductory tangents.

The latest was about his sister, Val, his wife Jill, and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who introduced the Bidens at the rally of 1,100 people in the gym at Longview Community College.

Biden called his sister a "girl-boy," meaning a tomboy, and then explained that girl-boys are softer than "girl-girls."

"You know why I think Jill likes Claire McCaskill so well, Senator McCaskill? Jill is one of five sisters, Claire is one of three sisters. And I tell you what, you women raised with sisters are different than women raised with brothers," Biden said as both women joined him on stage.

"My sister is smart, runs every one of my campaigns; is beautiful; graduated with honors from college; is homecoming queen. But she's a ... she is what I call a 'girl-boy' growing up, you know what I mean?"

"And I tell you what? Girl-girls are tougher than girl-boys," he said. "But there's one important thing I noticed.The great thing about marrying into a family with five sisters, there's always one that loves you. 'Cause you can count on splitting them a bit. You know what I mean?

"I shouldn't be going off like this, but -- hey, folks, 37 more hours, 37 more hours," he then said.
Thanks for clearing up any confusion, Joe.

The guy really needs a long rest. Let's make sure he gets one starting Wednesday.

In honor of the Gaffe-tastic Biden's many malaprops this campaign season, we reach back early on for my personal favorite.
