I just don’t know what else to think. By now nearly everyone has heard  Sen. Joseph Biden’s (D-Del.) comments regarding his colleague, Sen. Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaObama urges people to sign up for health insurance after ruling striking down law The 2020 Democratic nomination will run through the heart of black America Gillibrand says she's worried about top options in Dem 2020 poll being white men MORE (D-Ill.). For those of you who haven’t, Biden created an uproar as he discussed Obama in the following way: “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.”

Where to start?  Perhaps Sen. Biden should brush up on his history, as I recall the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton running for the presidency in the not-too-distant past. Let us also not forget former Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley Braun (D) doing the same.

I might not agree with the politics of the three above-mentioned African-Americans who have sought the presidency, but they were all quite articulate and mainstream in the minds of their constituency. What does Sen. Biden suggest or imply when referring to Sen. Obama as being “clean?” Were the reverends and Sen. Moseley Braun somehow not clean in Biden’s opinion? What a disgusting use of words.

Beyond this latest flap, perhaps you’ll remember what Sen. Biden had to say when discussing the large influx of Indian-Americans in Delaware during an event captured by C-SPAN. In this instance, Mr. Biden offered: “In Delaware, the largest growth population is Indian-Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” Senator, we know you’re not joking, and we’re certainly not laughing.

I can’t even imagine if a Republican senator had offered the identical commentary regarding Sen. Obama or Indian-Americans living in Delaware without immediate calls for their resignation. And this from a man who seeks to become president of the United States?

Sen. Biden has a problem with putting words together — whether plagiarizing the words of others (uncovered while running for president in 1988) or fumbling with words when using them to describe persons of color. Does Biden have a problem with people of color? I just don’t know what else to think.
