DNC Selling Biden-Themed ‘BFD’ T-Shirt

Apr 1, 2010 11:31am

Vice President Biden's infamous — yet accurate — remark to President Obama at the health care reform legislation bill-signing, picked up by microphone, is now available on an official Democratic Party T-shirt. The Democratic National Committee is selling shirts that say "Health Reform is a BFD," standing for "Big F-ing Deal," the judgment of the Vice President about the significance of the legislation.
The White House not only confirmed Biden’s comments but agreed. “And yes Mr. Vice President, you're right…,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tweeted. At a fundraiser in Baltimore, the VP recounted that he had not been taken to the woodshed for his admitted "faux pas." He said President Obama said, “You know what the best thing about yesterday was? Joe’s comment." Biden told the crowd that he told his boss, “If you thought it was so good, why didn’t you say it?” The shirts sell for $25 apiece.
