Joe Biden doesn’t get it, does he? As Laura Ingraham put it today, this is the shortest presidential campaign that ever wasn’t. Biden said of Barack 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.” What a ridiculous thing to say. Obama is the “first.” That means no African-American prior to Obama was “mainstream,” “articulate,” “bright,” “clean[!?],” or “nice-looking[??!!].”
Do you have your concession speech ready for next week, Joe?
