One thing I really hate about the primaries is the inevitable in-party bashing. Not only do I find this rather obnoxious, I also just think it's a stupid move, politically. Look at Bush and McCain.

Joe Biden's come out swinging, and he's already put his foot right smack in the middle of his yapper:
On 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.”

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.”
Yeah, he's the first articulate African-American in politics. The rest of "those people" are always just talking in that darn street lingo.

And apparently, they don't bathe, either.
