Vice President Joe Biden tries his hand at archery as Mongolian Prime Minister Sukhbaatar Batbold, second from right, laughs during Mini-Naadam staged in Biden's honor in Ulan Bator, Mongolia, on Monday, Aug. 22. Biden hailed the United States' growing ties with Mongolia on a rare visit to the Asian nation, which is opening up its vast coal reserves to foreign investors.

Oh, Vice President Biden. How you continue to provide endless amusement.

It could quite possibly be described as an imitation of the prowess and machismo exercised by Russian PM Vladimir Putin.

Biden could stand to shore up his stance a bit, when he's not busy catching up on sleep during Obama's deficit speech or smarting off at a Wisconsin custard shop.

Biden left last Tuesday for a tour taking him to China, Mongolia and Japan. The multifaceted trip has so far seen stops in Beijing and Mongolia with upcoming stops in Tokyo, as the country recovers from the earthquake and tsunami.
