Minneapolis mayor makes Cheney gun joke before Biden speech

Confuses 2004, 2008 Republican running mates


Minneapolis mayor R.T. Rybak joked that Vice President Joe Biden “took on Dick Cheney, he won, and he didn’t even get shot in the face” at a Minnesota campaign event with Biden Tuesday:

RYBAK: So when Barack Obama was ready to get the nomination, and we knew he was in a dog fight against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Biden stepped up and he took on Dick Cheney—he won and he didn’t even get shot in the face doing it. He took that guy on and he won, he stood right there with our president.

Obama and Biden ran against Sen. John McCain and Sarah Palin in 2008.
