According to the guy selling this Cadillac STS on Delaware Craigslist for $15,000, the car was leased by now-Vice President Joe Biden from 2005 to 2008.

A Railroad Baron’s Home Fit for Only One Man: Joe Biden

000000000

Dear Vice President Biden,

Is it OK if we call you Joe? God love ya, we feel like we know you with the Pennsylvania connection and all. Really sorry we missed you at 30th Street yesterday. We know how you feel about trains, though, so we thought this humongous estate in Bryn Mawr might pique your interest. It was built for the president of the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1896. We think it’s perfect for you.

Joe Biden: Not Down With Pot Legalization

Joe Biden has decided to betray every principle the Onion version of him stands for:

Just weeks after President Barack Obama told the New Yorker that the drug is no more dangerous than alcohol, Biden said the Administration supports smarter enforcement, but not outright legalization. “I think the idea of focusing significant resources on interdicting or convicting people for smoking marijuana is a waste of our resources,” Biden told TIME in an interview aboard an Amtrak train on the way to an event in Philadelphia. “That’s different than [legalization]. Our policy for our Administration is still not legalization, and that is [and] continues to be our policy.”

If enforcing the law is a bad idea, why have the law? [TIME]

Joe Biden’s Niece Allegedly Tries to Punch Cop, Gets Arrested

Fightin’ Joe Biden’s Internet-bestowed nickname may be wearing off on his family members, most recently the vice president’s niece, Caroline Biden.

Seems Caroline had a bit of trouble with her roommate this morning, with the fight escalating (devolving?) into a situation that required police presence. And then, well, all hell broke loose:

Caroline Biden was allegedly arguing with a roommate in her Tribeca apartment Tuesday morning, and when police responded, she resisted arrest and tried to take a swing at the officer, according to police.

Police will also charge the young lady Biden with harassment and obstructing governmental administration. She is expected to be arraigned today.

Somewhere, meanwhile, Joe Biden is shedding a manly, Delawarian tear of joy. Kids, after all, grow up so fast. [NBC]
