Just Biden My Time...

From the NY Times on Joe Biden:

He has a long history of making statements that get him in trouble. He was forced to apologize to Mr. Obama almost the moment he entered the race for president after he was quoted as describing Mr. Obama as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” a remark that drew criticism for being racially insensitive. While campaigning in New Hampshire, Mr. Biden said that “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

Um...Yeah...about *that*...

Okay, I think this guy has some of what it takes to deal with Foreign Policy. This is *good*. However, I think that statements like those up above make him just about the Whitest Man Running. (Even Whiter than The White Rabbit, MCain, and his princess bride from Stepford) My primal brain is screaming WTF???

From CNN:

In a debate during the Democratic primary contest, Biden raised questions about Obama's foreign policy experience.

"Who among us is going to be able on day one to step in an end the war? Who among us understands what to do about Pakistan? Who among us is going to pick up the phone and immediately interface with Putin and tell him to lay off Georgia because Saakashvili is in real trouble. Who among us knows what they're doing? I have 35 years of experience," Biden said

Um...Yeah...about that...Ah, excuse me, sir, but NO ONE in the running is currently able to do any of those things. Even you. So There. You may have been playing the War Game longer than that "Black Guy" and that will be mighty helpful, but, sir, the past few administrations have proven to ME that experience has gotten us nowhere but somewhere up Shits Creek without a paddle, so, um, like, back off.

I am NOT a happy camper this morning.
