Joe Biden's come out swinging, and he's already put his foot right smack in the middle of his yapper:
On Obama:Yeah, he's the first articulate African-American in politics. The rest of "those people" are always just talking in that darn street lingo.“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.”
But—and the “but” was clearly inevitable—he doubts whether American voters are going to elect “a one-term, a guy who has served for four years in the Senate,” and added: “I don’t recall hearing a word from Barack about a plan or a tactic.”
And apparently, they don't bathe, either.
