Comments: Perhaps it's all part of some grand scheme to make Kerry look like a less crappy campaigner

The sad thing is, he plagiarized that offensive remark from the British version of "Big Brother."

I think Biden's getting a bad rap. Let's look at what he said:
“the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Take note of that conjunction: "and".

Now look at Obama's counterexamples:
“African-American presidential candidates like Jesse Jackson, Shirley Chisholm, Carol Moseley Braun and Al Sharpton gave a voice to many important issues through their campaigns, and no one would call them inarticulate.”

Indeed. Nor, perhaps, dumb or dirty. Nonetheless, I think a strong argument could be made that *not one of them* was a nice-looking guy.

Of course, his later comment about Hillary being the first candidate to both be named Clinton and have supple breasts was both offensive and untrue.

Interestingly, Biden's comment looks a bit less stupid if you punctuate it the way he said it. (But only a bit less stupid.)

Oh, that is interesting. It does change things a bit, although he's still totally hosed, just like Howard Dean was after the "scream".
