Hugh posted this, but I'm repeating it because it bears repeating. Biden on Obama:

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,”

A clean black man? The first black guy on the American political scene who can both shower regularly and speak properly? Is that really what Biden thinks?

If a Republican had said this, we'd have a national outpouring of grief over the residual ignorance and racial insensitivity in our country, and the guy would be in sensitivity training unti round about the time John Kerry is elected president.

Biden, I'm sure, will pay no consequences for his boneheaded comment.

Update: In other Dem leadership news, Schumer and Clinton both have imaginary friends, and they talk about them to the media.
