Biden’s Custard Pie Soured By Non-Supporter in Ohio

-By Warner Todd Huston

As “Sheriff” Joe Biden stopped by Schmucker’s Restaurant in Toledo, Ohio to have a nice slice of custard pie, his sweet snack was soured by a disgruntled voter who told him to enjoy being VP while it lasted because the end is near, at least the voter hoped so, anyway.

Joe bellied up to the counter to order his pie and sat down next to a male voter who wasn’t so happy with the Obama administration. According to Politico’s Donovan Slack, the voter opened his conversation telling Joe he was “a good guy” but went on to tell him he hoped Joe would lose his bid for re-election.

“Before that, I told him to enjoy his last couple of months,” the man, who declined to give his name, said. “Just because you’re a good guy doesn’t mean you’re a good vice president.”

Slack noted that Biden sensibly took his pie to another table after the encounter with the soured voter.
