Joe Biden is pretty much a moron.
That’s not a surprise to anyone really.
Back in 2007 he said this about Obama:
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
But since he’s a Democrat he clearly can’t be racist, so we must just be taking this out of context or something.
Though I don’t really see what context could actually make that better.
Anyway, then in 2008 he said this about Indian Americans.
Now he’s presumably claiming Indian heritage, or something. Probably so that gaffe (one example, in an increasing long list, of why the White House should probably put a muzzle on him…I’m convinced he was chosen as Vice President so that Obama would look intelligent by comparison) can be explained away the same way that’s okay for uber-feminists to call other women sluts or gay people to call other people f*gg*ts.
“Off script for a second here, I was reminded — I was elected to the United States Senate when I was a 29-year-old kid back in 1972, and one of the first letters I received and I regret I never followed up on it. Maybe some genealogist in audience can follow up for me, but I received a letter from a gentleman named Biden — Biden, my name — from Mumbai, asserting that we were related. (Laughter.) Seriously. Suggesting that our mutual, great, great, great, something or other worked for the East India Trading Company back in the 1700s and came to Mumbai.
“And so I was thinking about it, if that’s true, I might run here in India for office. (Laughter.) I might be qualified. But I’ve never followed up on it. But now that I’m back for the multiple times, I’m going to follow up to find out whether there is a Biden and whether we’re related. I hope he’s in good standing if we are. (Laughter.)”
