As BP’s oil spill disaster has consumed America, President Obama has had to devote most of his time and attention toward it. Joe Biden on the other hand is in a different situation, or should I say country.

While President Obama deals with the disastrous event in the gulf, Vice President Biden will be in South Africa attending the World Cup, “representing the United States” as he puts it.

Obama wasn’t too thrilled about Biden’s departure. “I am honored to be (here) representing the United States. The president is angry,” as he puts it.

Apparently Biden is part-Irish, saying “In the spirit of a genuine Irishman, we are going to beat England.” Surprisingly no one asked him why Ireland is absent from the World Cup this year, and what he thinks about Thierry Henry.

I’m sure he’ll get plenty of face time during the USA-England match on Saturday, which begins at 2:30 p.m. on ESPN.
