Joe Biden’s D.C. Costco Trip Nets Modest-Sized Television, Large Apple Pie

The first Costco in Washington, D.C. opened today, receiving an inaugural visit from Vice President Joe Biden. Though he did semi-important stuff like address the coming “fiscal cliff” negotiations, his true purpose was to provide insight into the average Scranton-born man’s buying habits. Like any “regular guy,” Biden’s cart contained “children’s books, fire logs, a 32-inch Panasonic TV and a large apple pie.” Yup, just the essentials. [WashingtonPost]
