And so it has come to this. After 20 months of Barack Obama touting his “post-racial” candidacy, after 20 months of disingenuously attacking Republicans as racists for playing up his differences, after a brutal primary fight accusing his chief rival, Hillary Clinton, of race-baiting, here now comes Barack Obama’s running mate telling black voters to vote for Obama because He’s Black.
Must have taken all Joe Biden’s might not to point out that his running mate is also, you know, bright, clean, and articulate.
“Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden, campaigning in North Carolina where black votes could help swing the state to the Democrats, said today that electing a black person to the White House would be transformative.
Biden said the policies of running mate Barack Obama make his presidency even more urgent and declared this to be the most important election that any living person has seen in their lifetime. But he particularly singled out the meaning of electing someone who is black.
“That will be a transformative event in American politics and internationally,” Biden said. “That all by itself will be significant.”
“That all by itself” is all this ticket has going for it.blog comments powered by Disqus
