Joe Biden can jump; Plus, voter ID laws are ‘hatred’

At least Biden didn’t say voter ID laws are going to “put y’all back in chains.” Close, but not quite:

Vice President Joe Biden used remarks at a reception he hosted in honor of African-American History Month to swing hard at the “malarkey” of voting right restrictions around the country — specifically, citing voter ID laws in North Carolina, Alabama and Texas as offenders.

As he’s done before, Biden linked the voting rights fight now to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, calling the people trying to restrict voting now the intellectual descendants of those who beat the movement’s leaders in Selma 50 years ago.

He called the dismantling of Jim Crow laws and other expansions of voting among the the most important legacies of the civil rights movement.

“Without the right to vote, nothing else much mattered,” he said.

But things have changed only so much, he said, expressing disappointment.

“The zealotry of those who wish to limit the franchise cannot be smothered by reason,” he said.

Perfect. If you’re looking for somebody who can’t smother anything with reason, Joe Biden’s your man.

What are the odds that people attending Biden’s reception had to present a photo ID in order to get in? Pretty good I’d say. What’s with the hatred, Joe?

Biden left something out for obvious reasons:

He also failed to note that Jim Crow laws were Democrat laws, and the people attempting to block the civil rights law were mostly Democrats.

But Biden didn’t fail to pander like crazy:

The Veep laid down a serious on-court challenge to boss Barack Obama during a Black History Month reception.

“I told the president, next game, I’ve got him,” he said to Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson – a former NBA star.

“I may be a white boy, but I can jump,” he added, suggesting that he and Johnson team up to take on the POTUS.

A good laugh was had by all, even though everybody knows Biden couldn’t dunk a donut into a cup of coffee without tipping it over, knocking a candle onto the floor and burning the building down.
