Shortest campaign ever?

Let's hear it for Joe Biden, who declared his candidacy for President and then decided to show the world that he could stick his foot in his mouth even faster than the guy already in that office, which is really saying something. Here's what Biden said about Barack 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."

Obama's "clean"! Imagine that -- African Americans have finally come far enough that they can be trusted to field a Presidential candidate who can take a shower and knot a tie!

Honestly, folks, I can't think of a Democrat I'd less like to see in the Oval Office than Joe Biden. As Kevin Drum says, "He's just a gaffe machine waiting for someone to flip the power on."

well, Biden did suggest the trifurcated Iraq that I predicted would happen by March 2008.

As for the gaffe, I thought it was GREAT. It'ds the kind of thing I'm betting lots of folks are saying, said ilellegantly perhaps.
