The vice president of the United States Tuesday referred to himself as a “white boy” as he sought to cozy up to a group of black preachers in South Carolina who could be critical to his potential nomination for president in 2016.
Not that anyone thinks he’s going to be nominated for president in 2016, but stranger things have happened, like when people become president four years after being an obscure, ineffective state senator.
Anyhoo, Biden sought to portray himself as living with black people on the wrong side of the tracks, according to CNN, exclaiming that he was “the only white boy on the east side of Wilmington.”
Now I don’t know my east Wilmington from my left Wilmington, but I gather east Wilmington is where the African Americans are, and where Joe thinks his heart is. Even though his golf club, the Wilmington Country Club, looks to be more on the west side of Wilmington.
Unless east Wilmington looks like this.
And Biden said the Tea Party, which consists of millions of Americans he supposedly represents from his loft in the vice presidency, is filled with “crazy” people.
“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” he said. “This is a different breed of cat, man. I am not making a moral judgment, but I will tell you that they have no judgment.”
CNN helpfully compiled a video of some of Biden’s best other stupid remarks.
