A petition on the White House’s website calls for the government to produce a reality show following the trials and tribulations of the one politician who can still get it done in Washington: Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.
In the first week of the new year, the vice president proved he still has the swagger that won him his first term in the Senate in 1972. In just five days, one of his hands resuscitated the stalled fiscal cliff negotiations and the other was up on a myriad of Senate female family members.
Since Biden is the only member of the U.S. government who evokes a general sense of pure—for better or worse—authenticity, the possibility of a reality show starring the 47th vice president would be a hotly anticipated televised program.
According to the petition, the program would feature “the daily activities and interactions of the vice president with elected officials, foreign dignitaries, and everyday American families. Such a program would educate the American public about the duties and responsibilities of their vice president, while providing a glimpse of the lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates.”
Sounds a lot like the fourth season of ‘Jersey Shore’, but with more bronzer.
