Son of Bob sent me an email explaining why he’s chosen to retire this much-beloved feature:
I had pretty much planned on doing a final “Biden moment” today, to close out the running gag, but opted not to. When Joe Biden is a gaffe machine that the Dems are treating like the crazy uncle, the Biden moments are funny. But, when Biden and Obama are being commended for a “brilliant” campaign, Biden’s ridiculous statements move from humorous to tragic. Obviously, IMAO giving readers a reason to laugh at this administration is probably more important now than ever. However, to try to create something humorous about Joe Biden today just feels like trying to make jokes about your aunt that just died last night…too soon.
These will be missed.
Son of Bob, if you ever feel inspired to write on a different theme, drop me a line. You’ve got good comedy chops.
