Courtesy of Drudge is this report from the New York Observer quoting Joe Biden on Barack Obama.
Mr. Biden is equally skeptical‚Äîalbeit in a slightly more backhanded way‚Äîabout Mr. Obama. ‚ÄúI mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,‚Äù he said. ‚ÄúI mean, that‚Äôs a storybook, man.‚Äù
Oh, so I guess Jesse Jackson was dirty and inarticulate. Honestly, did he just refer to an African-American leader (he is, for better or worse) as unclean?
To be fair, Biden could have said worse. Last year he amazed people by telling an Indian-American “In Delaware… you can’t go into a 7-11 or Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”
I guess Biden’s speechwriter didn’t give him the draft that referred to Jackson as a ‘dirty house ni**er’, the Indian-Americans as ‘dots not feathers’ and asked if the Hispanics in attendance ‘had finished mowing his lawn’ yet.
Seriously, if this guy was a Republican, you’d be able to hear the Democrats screaming if you were halfway around the world. This jackass, however, keeps getting a pass. What is the likelihood that Matt Stoller will post on the racism of Joe Biden?
