Biden steps in his own pile of macaca

Oh, Joe Biden. Didn't anyone tell you that you're supposed to keep this kind of shit bottled up until AFTER the election?

Speaking about Democratic rival Barack Obama, Biden told a reporter, “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.”

Aside from it being a completely asinine thing to say, perhaps a little awareness of environment was in order. After all, you weren't talkin' to your grandma. This was a reporter from the New York Observer. A little more precision with your words is called for in such situations. And a little less racism.

Just tryin' to help, man.

I thought it was terribly interesting that Joe Biden stepped in a big pile of poo so soon - first day out of the blocks, wasn't it? There is so much time for some major crashes with a lot of flame involved when candidates declare themselves this early. It doesn't necessarily give them a running start... sometimes it gives them enough time and rope.....
