Obama Takes Biden’s Slip in Stride

Written for my COMM200 class (Spring Semester 2010) in April 2010 for a group project on blogging with a bias. My group’s blog intentionally has left lean, and was graded according to correctly writing with a liberal slant. Original here.

Said on a television show: immediate cancellation by the FCC. Said by the vice president of the United States: marketing opportunity by the Obama administration.

Joe Biden’s nowinfamous description of the passage of the health reform bill has made its way onto a t-shirt, despite the obscene nature of the acronym.

There are things that are a big deal — birthdays, anniversaries, the NCAA Championship game. And then there are things that are a BFD, like delivering health insurance to 32 million Americans.

For $25, now anyone can let the world know that, along with the vice president, they too think “Health Reform is a BFD.”
