If the following statements were made by the Republican VP candidate, you know Barack Obama would be screaming “racism” at the top of his lungs and the Mainstream Media would be having a nuclear-level uproar.Â Â Unfortunately for Barack, these statements were made by his ownÂ running mate.
Delaware & The Confederacy:Â In November, Biden joked about South Carolina’s Confederate past at a Rotary Club meeting in Columbia after organizers said their Christmas party at the Department of Archives and History would include a chance to see the state’s original copy of the Articles of Secession.
Biden noted Delaware was “a slave state that fought beside the North. That’s only because we couldn’t figure out how to get to the South â€” there were a couple of other states in the way.”
Biden violating Federal health privacy laws by announcing Barack Obama was tested for AIDS because he is black.
Biden describing Barack Obama’s candidacy:Â “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said.
Hey folks, that was just 5 minutes worth of work on Joe Biden’s race-tainted mouth.Â And I got all of those nuggets from our friends at the Democratic Underground.
Feel free to send along more Biden-in-Mouth Disease examples, including remarks about gays and lesbians, as we make Joe Biden our next mission in Operation GAOS.
What he needs is a plucky, fun, free-wheeling attack machine, with the necessary gravitas to express adequate contempt for the Bush administration’s fatally misguided foreign policy without in any way seeming defensive.
Our Short-Term Memory Afflicted Andrew forgets — Biden authorized use of force in Iraq.Â Barack wasn’t in the Senate then.
And then there’s this final rousing cheer of glee from Sully about Biden as VP nominee:
I have to say his inability to shut up drives me up the wall. But there’s also an appealing lack of guile to the man; he wears his flaws like his hair-plugs – out and proud.
Not an inspired choice, in my book. But smart and solid – and adult.
Uh, we’ll see about that.Â Â Seems like Obama has picked the liberal-version of Dick Cheney (from a lib’s point of view).
Finally, I defy anyone, anywhere to send me the name and contact information of one single person who woke up this morning, saw the news, and exclaimed in joy: “OMG!Â Â Obama picked BIIIIIIDEN!Â Â Woooo hooo!”Â (Biden Senate and campaign workers are exempt from this challenge).Â Emails accepted at BRUCE@GayPatriot.org.
