What, you thought old Joe had a chance?

Joe Biden is an ass. If you haven't been in the blogosphere today, here's what he said:

Mr. Biden is equally skeptical, —albeit in a slightly more backhanded way, —about Mr. Obama. "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,”" he said. “"I mean, that'’s a storybook, man.”"

There have been two strains of commentary on this. One looks at how that quote can be interpreted differently than it appears, and one that talks about how this affects his presidential candidacy. Okay, now let's stop right there and consider a couple of things. First, Joe Biden is a blubbering ass. I'm not willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that this quote should have been edited to include a comma before "who," or that by clean he means politically clean (see 1st comment). This is the same Joe Biden who 6 months ago said, "you cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts without an Indian accent." He is a moron of the first degree, and I do not believe that he meant today's comment any differently than it reads. Second, for those who are discussing how it affects his candidacy-you actually thought his candidacy was going to last past New Hampshire? He was going to be done early without this stupid quote. That is not going to change.
