That this picture appeared in our Twitter feed immediately after viewing a video from The Onion on Vice Pres. Biden’s hitchhiking journey to the Democratic National Convention* is pretty odd timing.
Quoting truckers and others who gave Jokin’ Joe rides and spotted him in low places along the route, the video suggests that the Veep parties pretty hard — harder, it would seem from the real-life photo, than some bikers. The one to Biden’s left looks as if he is considering how best to break up the discussion between Joe and the lady biker in this lap.
Here’s the video.
*The Onion is satire. The AP photo shown first on Buzzfeed, we assume, is not.
