JOE BIDEN OFFICIALLY STARTS – AND OFFICIALLY FINISHES – HIS LONGSHOT PRESIDENTIAL BID ON THE SAME DAY
FITSNews – February 1, 2007 – In case you missed the front page of this morning’s New York Times, scratch that, in case you missed the front page of any printed newspaper in the Western Hemisphere, Joe Biden pretty much screwed the pooch yesterday in calling Barack Obama â€œthe first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.â€
Uh, yeah. Way to imply that most black people are inarticulate, dumb, dirty and ugly, Joe.
And while there’s no doubt this was an honest misspeak, by the time the PC police are done with him you could hold probably next year’s NAACP convention inside Joe Biden’s rectum.
Once again, we refer all candidates running for public office back to the “Chris Rock Rule,” which holds that complimenting African-Americans for being “articulate” (which is where the misery started for Biden) is NEVER a good idea.
“Speaks so well’s not a compliment!” Rock screams in Bring the Pain. “Speaks so well’s something you tell retarded people who can talk.”
