Reason 1,079,854.178 why I would never vote for Biden

The dude's a freakin' racist. Via Americablog:
Here is the latest from the man who bragged he came from a slave state. Biden on 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.”
The dude's been on the wrong side of enough other issues (the bankruptcy bill from 2005 comes immediately to mind) that I had written him off long ago. Steve Gilliard's open letter puts it best:
Dear Sen Biden.

Sen. Obama is the "first mainstream African-American who is articulate"?

I would expect a gradute of Columbia and Harvard Law who was a former law professor to be articulate. His race should have nothing to do with that.

Would you say that John Lewis is inarticulate? Or Keith Ellison?

Senator, anyone running for office is by definition articulate. Unless you can't see past skin color..

Are Albert Wynn and Maxine Waters dirty and dull?

Senator, the fact that you rely on stereotypes, not once but on several occasions, should render you unfit to be President.
Gilliard has plenty more to say on the matter.
