Custard’s First Stand: Shop Manager Tells Biden ‘Lower Our Taxes’

You’ve heard of Joe the Plumber, now meet Scott the Custard Shop Manager.

Sheriff Joe’s big Summer Recovery Tour 2010 (aka “Scams Across America”) continues, and Weasel Zippers has the rundown of Biden’s visit to a Milwaukee frozen custard shop yesterday:

[Biden] was appearing with Democrat Sen. Russ Feingold. The two were eating custard there, and when Biden approached the manager with some money and asked, “What do I owe you,” the manager just responded, “Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even.” Biden later jokingly called the manager a “smart-ass,” telling him, “Why don’t you say something nice?”

Gee, I thought “lower our taxes and stop wasting so much money or you’ll get voted out of office before you know it” was something nice. That’s fairly friendly advice for the administration if you ask me.

When you watch the video, notice how fast Biden put his cash away after being told “it’s on us.” Don’t make ’em twist your arm, Joe.

President Obama was told the same thing at Ray’s Hell Burger last week and still insisted on paying (he knows he’ll get it back on the other side anyway).

An RNC spokesman helps sum up Biden & Feingold’s visit and refusal to take reporters questions:

Ryan Tronovitch, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, issued a statement criticizing the vice president’s visit to Wisconsin.

“Knowing Vice President Biden and Senator Feingold, it wouldn’t surprise me if they called Biden’s time behind the counter at Kopp’s Frozen Custard a job saved or created in Wisconsin.” Tronovitch said. “Biden probably decided not to take questions today because he didn’t want to fess up as to why Wisconsin has lost over 73,000 jobs since the stimulus was enacted and why the state’s unemployment rate has jumped from 7.7% to 8.2% when it was promised that the stimulus would be the savior to our economy.”

In the end though, the custard shop manager said that Biden “had a good personality” — a “compliment” usually reserved for a blind date that turns out to be a double-bagger. In a similar sense politically, it’s also the perfect description for the steaming pile of “stimulus” Biden’s charged with convincing us is a real looker.
