In Which Blue Really, Really, Really Retracts Her Sympathies for Sen. Biden

Blue needs to start reading things besides the NY Times.

Because about a month ago, there was all that buzz... Biden described Obama as "articulate," etc. etc. etc. and a plethora of editorials and seven-page online articles about whether it was a racial insult or not. Everything focused on the word "articulate."

And then, through another SepiaMutiny link (which actually took me to this page, which I have fact-checked with other online news sources including CNN), I suddenly learn the real quote.

Why was all the focus on "articulate?" Why wasn't anyone nailing Biden for calling Obama "the first mainstream African-American who is clean?"

I think I am going to go bury my head in my hands for a while.

I don't know what sort of black people Joe Biden is meeting, but I always find them to be articulate..
