Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, you have to acknowledge that Biden’s making a quality run for the title of Most Jalop Vice Prez Of All Time on his way out. Hell, maybe even most Jalop politician!

According to those who were at this year’s North American International Auto Show, Biden appeared to be doing a bit of shopping, stopping to check out various examples of high-powered Americana on the show floor.

It’s the Corvette, though, that seems to have stolen his heart.

The great American V8 engine is truly the impermeable glue which holds this nation together. One nation, under ‘Vette, indivisible, with burnouts and donuts for all. All hail the mighty Corvette. Come hang out anytime, Joe!
