The Weekly Bidenism

Did you know that our mentally-challenged Vice President is a keen observer of the human condition? That’s right. And while some may consider it racist to make nasty generalizations about people based on their race, Joe doesn’t. Get ready for. . . The Weekly Bidenism.

In October 2007, Joe was asked by the editorial board of the Washington Post why some schools in Iowa perform better than some schools in the District of Columbia. Joe had an answer. . . blacks:

"There's less than 1 percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4 or 5 percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with..."
Wow, did Joe just say that? Yes, yes he did. And if Joe was anything other than a Democrat, he would have been driven out of polite society and pilloried with a dozen political cartoons showing him in Robert Byrd’s KKK hood.

But Joe’s a liberal, so he can't be a racist, right? No, he couldn’t be. This must be an isolated incident, doesn’t it? Actually, no. On February 4, 2000, Joe said this about Obama to the New York Observer:
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."
“Clean”? Is Joe implying that blacks are dirty? And what’s this about being the “first” black politician who is “articulate and bright”? That sure sounds like racism. . . at least if a nonliberal said it. But Joe is a liberal, and it's just not fair to judge him on the basis of two very racists statements. So, I guess, as long as those are the only racist things Joe has said, then we. . . what? That’s not everything? Ok.

On June 28, 2007, Joe made the following comment during a primary debate in Washington, D.C.:
"I spent last summer going through the black sections of my town, holding rallies in parks, trying to get black men to understand it is not unmanly to wear a condom, getting women to understand they can say no, getting people in the position where testing matters. I got tested for AIDS. I know Barack got tested for AIDS."
Holy sh~t Joe! Black women don’t know they can say “no”? Black men don’t understand they can wear condoms? WTF Joe?! Are blacks ignorant children who need your noble tutelage? Do you see yourself as a one man Peace Corp traveling into a primitive culture? You sure as heck make it sound that way. Even by liberal-hypocritical standards where we ignore the racism of liberals, this cannot be ignored.

Wow. We have an honest-to-God bigot for a Vice President.

Oh, and just to show that Joe isn’t just bigoted against blacks, take a look at this comment that Joe gave to C-SPAN in June 2006 (and he wasn’t joking):
"You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."
So, my dear Democrats. . . where’s the outrage? We’re waiting.

I love the weekly Bidenisms. :-)

I have a theory about why the comedians don't touch the humor. It is because they can't top him. Anything they say will be a let-down.

Joe biden - the gift that keeps on giving. You don't really think Uncle Joe is a racist, though do you? It goes to show how much "stupid" you can get away with if your a Democrat.

Somewhere, Dan quayle is turning over in his grave. Oops, Dan is actually not dead even though he was buried politically by the media.

AndrewPrice said...

Joel, Thanks! I'm enjoying writing them, and I'm pretty sure that Biden loves providing us with material! ;-)

I don't know why they won't touch him, but he's given a lot more comic gold than Dan Quayle or any Republican I can think of!

Though, in all fairness, I must admit that SNL has blasted him a couple of times.

AndrewPrice said...

Jed, I doubt that Biden is a racist, but then I doubt that most of the people accused of racism are racists. I think it's a form of slander used by people who promote identity politics with the intent of attacking and destroying people they don't like.

And I can assure you, if a conservative had said any of these quotes, they would have been attacked and labelled as racists without a second thought or even a chance to offer a defense.

That said, the assumptions behind Biden's comments are rather nasty and they are clearly race-based, so who knows what this guy really thinks. . . if anything.

LawHawkSF said...

I'm with Joel on this one. There's no way a writer can come up with funnier comedy material than Joltin' Joe comes up with himself (and which you delightfully reprise for us).

Tennessee also makes a good point. But I can't help but wonder if they hyped Obama's alleged super-intellect and mysterious academic credentials so much that they needed Joe just to make Obama appear intelligent. If so, the strategy didn't work!

AndrewPrice said...

Thank ya' Lawhawk, and I enjoy reprising them.

That would be an interesting strategy, choosing Joe because he's so stupid that he makes others around him look intelligent? Hmm.

CrispyRice said...

Nice collection, as usual, Andrew!

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks CrispyRice, I have good source material.

LawHawkSF said...

Andrew: Who was it who said "It's hard to soar with the eagles when you're surrounded by turkeys?" And is Obama familiar with that saying? Inquiring minds want to know.

patti said...

the only way to make these better would be if he used "jazz hands" after he speaks.

AndrewPrice said...

Patti, LOL! That would do it! That or a mascot costume. :-)

StanH said...

Great again Andrew! I see BBB…Biden dressed as the court jester, the funky hat, funky shoes, and of coarse the bells.

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, Everyone in the cabinet is a turkey. . . or a nut.

AndrewPrice said...

Stan, I like the mascot costume idea! LOL! He can do backflips and shoot t-shirts into the crowd of journalists as Obama gives press conferences.

StanH said...

What a sight that would be Andrew. LOL!

LawHawkSF said...

Andrew: I was reading another blog and came on a W. quote: "If bulls--t was currency, Joe Biden would be a billionaire."

Individualist said...

Patti I went to you tube and typed in Joe Biden Jazz Hands and this was the first selection that was listed. ?????

LL said...

I can only add that I'm thrilled that Biden is:

(1) The assistant to his black leader.

(2) A Democrat

Therefore he can in no way be considered a racist, no matter what he says.

Biden is the comic relief for the ObamaNation

AndrewPrice said...

LL, I think it's interesting that you never see the two of them together. I suspect that when Obama disappears to have his book ghost written, we'll learn that he and Biden never got along.

MegaTroll said...

I remember the media blasting Dan Quayle over and over for one or two mistakes, but they're strangely silent over Biden.

AndrewPrice said...

Mega, It's shameless. For a supposedly being concerned with just reporting "the truth", they certainly have a very biased version of it.

BevfromNYC said...

Hysterical - I love the "jazz hands" image!

Wasn't it Trent Lott that got pilloried for just thanking Strom Thurmond (former racist Dixie-crat)for his 100+ year service to America when Strom retired?

AndrewPrice said...

Yes it was Bev. The Democrats called that racist. Yet, Robert Byrd (former KKK) remains in their party, and they let statements like this pass by with just a "oh, that's just Joe, ha ha!"
