Here are the funniest Joe Biden gaffes of all time. The 47th Vice President of the United States has a history of sticking his foot in his mouth. These Joe Bidenisms are classic gaffes the former democratic Senator has made over the years. From his time in the Senate to his time during the 2008 elections, Joe Biden has commited a number of verbal blunders and we can't wait for more from this highly entertaining character. He's almost the Forrest Gump of the political landscape. How did this man become Vice President?

What some of the best Bidenisms? There are plenty to choose from. Who could forget his performance during the 2012 Vice Presidential debate? Biden was in rare form that night. Vice President Biden, at least for Democrats, is a folk hero. But one thing that united people from across the aisle is Joe Biden. You either love him or hate, but what you can't deny is that the guy has sayings, and a lot of them.
