Joe Biden Is Radiant in His New Official Portrait

Earlier today, the White House released a new official portrait of Leslie Knope's boy toy, Vice President Joe Biden. Taken Jan. 10 by his official photographer, David Lienemann, we see a triumphant Biden sporting a body conscious pinstripe suit and a blue candy cane tie. He's surrounded by the American and vice presidential flags, and looks exactly like my next husband. Looking good, veep.

Also, is it my imagination, or does the man look ten years younger since his last official portrait? Va va voom.

Does anyone else get mad that taxes pay for these things? I mean...part of me is happy that an artist is getting paid and I know that it's important for history and blah blah blah. But another part of me thinks this is stupid, and he got a portrait done 4 years ago (along with Obama and the first lady) and do we really need more than one? It's only been 4 years.

It's not just the Pres, VP, and First Lady who get these done either, apparently. Wouldn't it be cool if one of the people who was supposed to get an official portrait done said "screw this, donate the $30,000 to a public school in a low income area!" I guess that would be problematic too.
