After his Swine Flu Warning, VP Joe Biden Returns Home on the Train

Political Cartoon by Michael Ramirez

Vice President Joe Biden probably did not want to go home on the train, after his gaffe swine flu warning but he did anyway.
One day after saying he wouldn’t travel in tight quarters because of the swine flu scare, Vice President Joe Biden rode a train Friday from Washington to Delaware.

Known for speaking freely, Biden told NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday that he had urged family members to avoid airplanes and subways for fear of contracting the H1N1 flu virus.

“I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,” Biden said.

The comments infuriated the travel industry and triggered several revisions from the Obama administration, whose official advice is less severe.

Slow Joe took one for the team – whether he liked it or not.

  1. That’s kinda strange, actually, because I just read a profile of Jill Biden, which says that the couple spend all their time in Washington, and rarely go back to their Delaware home now. The article said they hadn’t been there for 3 weeks. All that ‘Ordinary Joe’ stuff about taking the train home was before he became VP. Now he’s too much of a high-flyer to commute everyday.
