Tweet of the Day: Biden to have prime time cameo on sitcom

(CNN) – Joe Biden's office posted Thursday on Twitter that the vice president will appear in an episode next week on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," which stars Amy Poehler and Rob Lowe.

While based in a fictional Indiana town, one of the show's characters works in Washington, D.C. In the first episode this season, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Olympia Snowe, and Sen. Barbara Boxer all made brief appearances.

    It has to be hard to be a right wingnut, they are nasty about everything that makes America great. As for full employment, 5.3 million jobs in 33 months and going strong, without a singe republican vote to help Americans.

    Reps. will continue to throw any bad comments while they pout about losing. Maybe some of them learned a lesson, but I'm not counting on it. Hope the infrastructure jobs bill can finally get passed.

    >5.3 million jobs in 33 months and going strong

    strong would be 300,000 a month or 9,900,000 jobs in 33 months. that would get people back to work and truly lower unemployment. 160,606 a month doesnt even cover the growth of the population. but keep trying to sell your lies if it makes you feel better.

    Biden is more qualified to work in the Parks & Recreation dept than he is in DC. Total joke.

    "why are there more bridges for all the unemployed office workers to rebuild? please let us know which ones they are so we can avoid them."

    3 of the top 5 hardest hit industries by the recession have been manufacturers of cement and concrete products, wholesalers of lumber and construction materials and, number 1, dealers of building materials and supplies. If you think those industries should wallow just because infrastructure projects would involve large amounts of union labor, then at least be honest enough to state that as your reason.

    Its time all americans start being realistic there was honestly no way obama could've cut unemployment in half while still cutting the deficit. Uptight serious ideologies is exactly why romney did not win, conservatives need to loosen up or they may not win another presidential election for a long time.

    The Vice President is one of the most decent people in American politics.

    little known fact. an executive order required all stimulus funding be given to union labor projects. people not in unions never got a penny. i guess all the people needing work that weren't in unions just aren't important and might as well strave as far as the dems are concerned.
