Poe: Guests didn't want to 'hang out with' Biden

Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) read a letter on the House floor Monday that included a not-so-subtle swipe at Vice President Joe Biden.

Poe said it was a "letter to the editor" by Alicia Church, but didn't identify the newspaper. In it, Church sarcastically compared the White House party crashers to illegal immigrants.

"Isn't it more appropriate to call them undocumented guests?" Poe read. "How can anyone be mad at them just because they crossed over some arbitrary man-made border?"

Here's the zinger: "They were only doing things that regularly invited guests didn't want to do, like hang out with Vice President Biden."  (ouch!)

Poe finished reading and closed with his traditional ending, "And that's just the way it is," he said.

A spokesman for the vice president declined to comment.
