    Vice President Biden's trip to the Middle East -- meant to pave the way for a new round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks -- is coming to a close, leaving in its wake a trail of stinging snubs, cringe-worthy blunders and one-word headlines in Israel newspapers: "Embarrassment."

    If it were merely a series of typical "Biden'isms," it'd be one thing. But in a sign that U.S.-Israeli relations have cooled, the vice president and top Israeli officials spent the better part of the week poking each other in the eye.

    It didn't take long to see the trip was not going well.

    The U.S. vice president's most daring snub may have come when he arrived 90 minutes late to a dinner Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    But that was after a day of mishaps on the Israeli end and before the prospect of restarting peace talks began to sputter.

    After reading that all I can say is Oh... My... God... :mad:
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I have the feeling this isn't going to end well.

    Sending Biden and Chris to Israel is like sending them to a circus; you don't whether the clowns or the freaks will show up.

    Hitlery's job approval is much higher than the two dummies ( O and Joe); so, the beast will be out of sight and out of mind in the upcoming months in order to blunt this discrepancy.

    She still has her hopes for 2012. She's sitting back watching them sink like rocks.

    Would be fun to see O and the beast tangle in the primaries. He would still win because of the loons in the Democ. party. So, she will probably bide her time.
