Joe Biden, Obama Duo Charm Internet One Last Time Before Leaving White House

Joe Biden is, in popular imagination, America’s favorite uncle—or perhaps uncle-through-marriage. He isn’t the fat, orange racist who annually disgraces the Thanksgiving table. He isn’t the weird one who got super into Jesus after Desert Storm. He’s the laidback, pot-smoking, air-headed and occasionally bumbling sort. The kind of person who’s always looking to get a rise out of the right people.

We’re free to fill in the gaps with joints and shades and plumbuses of all sorts. And somewhere over the course of these eight years, Mr. Biden was certified Dank.

I’m not sure how things are going in D.C. right about now—but I’d sure like to believe the following memes capture the spirit.

For too long in this society, we have celebrated unrestrained individualism over common community.

No fundamental social change occurs merely because government acts. It’s because civil society, the conscience of a country, begins to rise up and demand – demand – demand change.
