Biden's "chains" comment has been taken out of context. The audience was not primarily black. The speech was located at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research in Virginia. He was making a comment about Wall St regulations, not race. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7h1yAAdOVQ It is a weird thing to say, but I just don't see the connection made in this article.

Biden sure as hell wasn't talking to whites when he said "They're going put put y'all back in chains." It was just another cheap shot at the Republican ticket. And to think, just a couple of days ago Biden was saying in a TV interview that Paul Ryan was a good, decent family man. Now what kind of good, decent family man would want to put African-Americans back in chains? Have you too 'evolved' your position on Paul Ryan (like Obama did on same sex marriage) in such a short time?

You could have any number of other metaphors to describe your opponents' position.

Looks like Vice President Joe Biden has been taking extracurricular Democratic jive-talking lessons. The results of condescending liberals' cynical racial pandering attempts are, as always, seismically cringe-inducing.

At a campaign event in Danville, Va., the gaffetastic veep dropped his g's and picked up a bizarre twang in front of an audience of black voters. Middle-Class Joe swapped his Home Depot apron for an A.M.E. preacher's robe and sermonized about the big, bad GOP.

Romney's "gonna let the big banks once again write their own rules," Biden shouted. "Unnnn-chain Wall Street," he exclaimed with pulpit bravado. "They're gonna put y'all...
