Holy Mackerel': VP Biden Kisses Supporter on Lips for Cracking Clint Eastwood Joke


Vice President Joe Biden was so pleased with one woman's anti-Clint Eastwood joke today at a campaign stop in Ohio, he actually kissed her on the lips, according to a pool report.

Biden rolled into Antone's Italian Grill at around 2:30 p.m. today, "a slightly swankier-than-average food booth," the report said.

"I just ate lunch," Biden said, before looking at the menu options and taking recommendation from restaurant staff.

For the vice president of the United States, they chose $6 balls of fried cheese with tomato sauce and pasta. "This is a meal," Biden said, after getting his plate.

"Holy mackerel," he added, and gave the waiter a $20 bill and declined change back.  "Good recommendation, man."

Then things got interesting. After posing for some photos with food in hand, he started to chat with some supporters who were around. "I used to have hair like that," Biden quipped to a little boy with a buzz cut, adding "Look what happened."

Then a woman, later identified as Bev Kalmer of Poland, Ohio by the pool, told the vice president: "Welcome to Ohio."

"I've been waitin' all day to be here," Biden responded.

Then the Kalmer shot back, "You gotta keep the chair," referencing Clint Eastwood's speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday night where he spoke to an invisible President Obama in an empty chair on stage.

So Joe Biden puckered up and gave the women a "kiss right on the lips, and "she swooned."

When the pool asked her if she wants Biden to run for president in 2016, she said : "I don't know. We've got to keep the chair." She paused. "You got that? The invisible chair."

We got it.

So far video of the smooch doesn't appear to be available but TheBlaze is working to try and secure some footage.
