Why all the anger? It's a fun idea. If you like Joe, there's no reason not to have some fun. If it bothers you so much, start your own donation page to buy Romney a f*cking personality or something.

Cyclometh: RichieLaw: Cyclometh: RichieLaw: Cyclometh: RichieLaw: Perk $5: Knowledge that you contributed to making an internet meme come true.

Perk $10: Joe Biden will slam a Coor's Lite in your honor while ripping the sleeves off of his button-down. (Need a description) - Was thinking of, "Not really, but if there is enough interest, maybe we can convince Uncle Joe to chug a beer in your honor. Pictures to be posted all over the internet, of course."

Any more?

Perk $50- your name inscribed on a cassette of Night Ranger to be included with the vehicle (limit 10).

Is this feasible?

Well, maybe a CD. A cassette would be hard to find. And by "inscribed" I had in mind a label or something like that. I mean, this is all for fun anyway, the perks should reflect the silliness.

True. Maybe we could get a mix-tape/cassette of songs from the year the trans-am was made. Limit it to like 50?

Gotta be careful about copyright; I think we should only include purchased CDs, maybe a "greatest hits" collection of some of the artists of the time in line with the theme. The perk could be having your name included in a liner insert along with the CD?


Just remember, any cassette left in a car for over a month turns into "Best of Queen."

1) Purchase helicopter for Sarah Palin so she can improve her wolf shooting skills mid-air.

I didn't watch the stage-managed bullshiatfest, but I gather Biden was douchey enough to make it a competitive douche-off.

This suggests an awesome web video someone needs to make now: The Professor and the Douche.

Obama and Biden ride around the country in Biden's Trans-Am. Obama bores people with detailed explanations of his policies while Biden mugs and hits on all the ladies.

So. Pitch so far:

Unfortunately, not everything on the internet is true, no matter what the internet tries to tell you. Over the past four years one of the internet's favorite political meme's is of "Uncle Joe Biden." It started with an Onion article (http://www.theonion.com/articles/shirtless-biden-washes-trans-am-in-w hite-house-dri,2718/) which poked fun at the Vice President because of his blue collar mannerisms and forthright speech when discussing...well...anything.

Joe Biden has made a career about speaking what he means, regardless if it is in his best political interest or if it is the "politically correct" thing to say. Because of this he endures jokes regarding his "gaffes" and verbal miscues and America (and some of the rest of the world) laugh and chuckle about this homer Vice President of ours.

All the while, Joe Biden has calmly and quietly been an incredible Vice President. He was one of the first politicians to publicly embrace gay marriage (http://articles.latimes.com/2012/may/06/nation/la-na-biden-gay-marria ge-20120507) and may have been personally responsible for President Obama coming out in favor of gay marriage and the subsequent change in the Democratic Party's platform.

In order to let Vice President Biden know just how much we appreciate them, while also making a very silly part of the internet come true (we are the internet after all); let's buy Uncle Joe a Trans Am like one that is featured in the Onion article linked to above. It's hilarious, it's awesome and gosh darnit, it's something that we can talk about in addition to the cat pictures and rage comics.

Now, if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome and cannot be given to Vice President Biden, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off.

All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.

Regardless if it is to Joe Biden or to charity, maybe Joe Biden will even wash it on the White House lawn.

**Im wondering if we should just do this straight up for charity....I sincerely doubt he'll be able to accept it.

I f-ing love The Onion...this kills me everytime:

Dressed in a slightly ripped Lynyrd Skynyrd T-shirt, Biden tapped the top of an Icehouse tallboy, cracked it open, and then informed the 20,000 people in attendance that while the economy is no longer hemorrhaging jobs as it was in 2008, nothing, "not even that little trip I took to Thailand in '92," could ever live up to the unforgettable months of June through August 1987, when "the skirts were short, the brews were cold, and you couldn't walk 2 feet without stepping into some grade-A tang."

Last Version of the Pitch:

Joe Biden loved his Trans Am. As soon as it reached about 40 degrees, in Scranton, PA. Ole Joe would pull the cover off of his beloved beauty and spend hours detailing her immaculate curves. He'd often be overheard murmuring how sweet his,"Bird" was, which was in complete opposite to his normally gruff demeanor. It also made certain Senate Foreign Relations Committee meetings very awkward.
Senator Biden, now Vice President Biden, was always known for his fiery and passionate speech and mannerisms. But when he looked at the Bird, he'd hitch up his jorts, rip off of his shirt sleeves and chug a sixer of Ice House. It was love.

Then came the Great Recession. Biden tried to maintain his Trans AM through 2009, but with the soaring gas prices and the Republican's pressure to destroy everything that was General Motors, he was unable to do so. He sold it to a young man about to go to war in Iraq. There were tears in his eyes when he gave the Bird away. But he knew she would be in a better place.

Unfortunately, not everything on the internet is true, no matter what the internet tries to tell you. Over the past four years one of the internet's favorite political meme's is of "Uncle Joe Biden." It started with an Onion article (http://www.theonion.com/articles/shirtless-biden-washes-trans-am-in-w hite-house-dri,2718/) which poked fun at the Vice President because of his blue collar mannerisms and forthright speech when discussing...well...anything.

Joe Biden has made a career about speaking what he means, regardless if it is in his best political interest or if it is the "politically correct" thing to say. Because of this he endures jokes regarding his "gaffes" and verbal miscues and America (and some of the rest of the world) laugh and chuckle about this homer Vice President of ours.

All the while, Joe Biden has calmly and quietly been an incredible Vice President. He was one of the first politicians to publicly embrace gay marriage (http://articles.latimes.com/2012/may/06/nation/la-na-biden-gay-marria ge-20120507) and may have been personally responsible for President Obama coming out in favor of gay marriage and the subsequent change in the Democratic Party's platform.

In order to let Vice President Biden know just how much we appreciate them, while also making a very silly part of the internet come true (we are the internet after all); let's buy Uncle Joe a Trans Am like one that is featured in the Onion article linked to above. It's hilarious, it's awesome and gosh darnit, it's something that we can talk about in addition to the cat pictures and rage comics.

Now, if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome and cannot be given to Vice President Biden, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off.

All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.

Regardless if it is to Joe Biden or to charity, maybe Joe Biden will even wash it on the White House lawn.

Prohibited uses:
No charity or cause funding.
Examples of prohibited use include raising money for the Red Cross, funding an awareness campaign, funding a scholarship, or promoting the donation of funds raised, or future profits, to a charity or cause.


It is NOT charity - it is PROTECTED POLITICAL SPEECH.

We want this to happen because we want to see what the public perception/reaction will be. This is political theater. This is protected by the goddam bullshiat Citizens United ruling. We could buy the car in the name of the Joe Biden Is A Regular Guy Media Manipulation Trust, which could then "give" the car to Biden in accordance with its to-be-written trust instruments. IF he can't accept it, then the trust either gives the car to some non-profit or sells it and gives the money away. Or Biden could take the car after he leaves government service, maybe. But if we call the car, and the giving of the car, "political advertising" then we should be in the clear and even if we're not it could make an interesting legal shiat-storm.
