The letter-writing campaign, the rallies, the sacrifices of pure children...they've all paid off. Joe Biden is going to appear on TV. And lest you think it's a ham-fisted cameo to capitalize on the hangover of election fever, you're probably right.

But the cameo isn't without context, as Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope has mentioned off hand on several occasions that she carries a flame for the veep, and would do naughty, unnatural things to him if afforded the opportunity.

Barack Obama has pronounced his affection for the show in the recent past, and since Joe Biden is his vice president, Joe Biden has to like everything that his boss does as is stipulated in Article IX, Subsection V of The Constitution That I Just Made Up.
