"I mean, you've got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a story-book, man,"
Senator Joe Biden
The key in this statement is first sort of mainstream. That means that in all the years he has been a public official Barak Obama is the first black man that Joe Biden has ever been impressed with. Guess what? Joe Biden's a Democrat. There are not many statements made publicly that offend me but this one does. In fact, this is worse than Michael Richards using the N-Word because this man has a say so in the policies of America. Did I mention he was a Democrat? Everyone who thinks Barak Obama has a real chance of winning a popular vote in this country please speak now.
Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson said Wednesday night, "It was a gaffe. It was not an intentional racially pejorative statement. It could be interpreted that way, but that's not what he meant."
Is Jesse Jackson serious? The only reason he feels this way is because Biden is a Democrat. If Joe Biden was a conservative Republican from Alabama or Mississippi, he would be leading a march to his house and demanding he step down.
