…please, please, please, keep Joe Biden on the ticket. The Sage of Wilmington, Uncle Joe Biden, perhaps the stupidest man to be elected to the Senate since Foghorn Leghorn. Oh, right. Foghorn never made it to the Senate, but he likely would’ve been a smarter senator.
Uncle Joe is, as they say, gaffe-prone. Usually the mistakes can be laughed off, with a wink and a reference to “our lovable Uncle Joe.” Joe The Sage, however, really stepped in it last week when he talked to a heavily black audience in Danville,
North Carolina Virginia.
What Joe did what classic Democrat lowest-common-denominator trash. As the editors of National Review put it,
Biden’s condescending “y’all” and phony mush-mouthed g-dropping suggest a great deal about what he really thinks of the southern blacks he is attempting to buffalo with this embarrassing nonsense. He should be ashamed of himself, and those who associate with him should be ashamed of themselves.
Well, perhaps it’s asking too much for Biden to be ashamed of himself. He is a Democrat politician for life, continually demonstrating how easily fooled the voters in Delaware must have been to keep on electing him. Unless, of course, the First Staters did not actually realize what a dunce Joe is, but that kind of reflects poorly on the state, doesn’t it?
As for the politics of Biden’s outrageous remarks, the NR editors lay the principal blame on the Democrats for tolerating this kind of nonsense:
To suggest as Biden did that Romney’s program has something — anything — in common with slave-trading is vile even by the standards of Democratic campaign rhetoric. That no Democrat of note has spoken up against it is a testament to the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the party and the political movement it represents.
This is not the party of FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK. This is the party of the radical left, the party that will do anything to gain and hold power.
Yes, Joe Biden is an idiot. Those in the Democrat ranks who can still think for themselves are either fooling themselves or are evil to let this kind of nonsense from the Vice President of the United States go unanswered.
