Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Left’s spin: Biden’s racism an “asset”

The left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) are already in spin cycle mode over the selection of Greasy Joe Biden to The One’s campaign.  From Ace:

There is spin, and then there is spin: a CNBC/NYT reporter claims that Joe Biden’s occasional bursts of old-school dumb-but-not-hateful racism are actually “refreshing” and “an asset.”

Need I remind anyone that for months the left has been DaVinci Codebreaking every John McCain advertisement for so-called “coded racism.” And they were not praising such “coded racism” as “refreshing” or charming in the least.

Rather the opposite.

But when Joe Biden is genuinely, pleasantly surprised that an African-American manages to wash himself on occasion, it’s a good thing! It just shows, I guess, that he’s “relatable” to all those Racist Older White voters. I guess the idea is that Joe Biden can make the case, “Hey, I’m as surprised as you all are to be running with a darkie. But I have to tell you — he’s one of the ‘good ones,’ like Cosby or Byron Allen. He’s like the new, family-friendly Ice Cube, not the old, angry Ice Cube that your daughter would date to get back at you for not buying her that Mini Cooper she wanted.”

Brilliant.

There’s more, and it’s all good stuff.  I know, I know…that’s two from Ace today.  Sorry, but the guy nails it, plus he’s funny as heck…deal with it.  🙂

Quote of the day, Biden edition

BEVERAGE ALERT!  Ace has this to say about The One’s apostle, the gaffe-o-meter Greasy Joe:

Joe Biden is a scatterbrained and socially awkward guy. He’s the guy at the party who announces, out of nowhere, “I just had some subcutaneous fat injected into my penis to increase its girth, so that’s pretty good.”

And then… the uncomfortable silence as everyone takes keen regard of their shoes and watches.

We’re gonna have fun.

😆

Hilarious in Seattle

Mother Nature may have pounded my area last week, but she does have a sense of humor.  From Seattlestan:

Only in Seattle could an event touted as a way to help the environment get washed out during what is supposed to be the driest time of the year.

Heh.

Sick BBC newsbabe laments lack of glowing Taliban coverage

Only from the openly liberal Beeb (or possibly al-Reuters and/or Al Jazeera)!  Details:

A BBC news girl attacked TV yesterday for failing to show viewers the Taliban’s “humanity”.

Presenter Lyse Doucet’s astonishing statement comes as an Apache gunship hero revealed the fanatics aim to capture a British soldier and SKIN HIM LIVE on the internet.

Military Cross winner Ed Macy — whose book Apache is serialised in The Sun from today — tells how an intelligence officer gave details of the Taliban butchers’ sick plan.

It made Army Air Corps Warrant Officer Macy and his comrades even more determined to rescue a mortally wounded Marine from a Taliban stronghold — which they did with four soldiers strapped to the outside of two Apaches.

But BBC World News correspondent Doucet claimed the public also want to seeing the kinder side of the Afghan extremists.

Asked what was missing in media coverage, she said: “It may sound odd but the humanity of the Taliban, because they are a wide, very diverse group of people.”

Canadian-born Doucet, 49, told the Edinburgh TV festival: “Some would like to talk to the British Government. Some of them don’t want to be fighting British troops. Some of them would. This is the ideological Taliban.”

Doucet, with the BBC since 1983, also criticised the reporting of Prince Harry’s Army service in Afghanistan.

She said: “You knew the bombs were dropping and the guns were pointing in that direction but you never got a sense of how Afghans are as a people.” …

Unfriggingbelievable!

Biden bits about the blogosphere

The Obamessiah picked his disciple last week: Joe Biden (Plagiarist-DE), a clean articulate guy from reliably blue Delaware.  They might want to avoid campaigning at 7-11 stores, though.  What are we seeing about the blogosphere regarding the pick?

  • Reminders that Greasy Joe thinks Iowa schools do better than DC schools due to the lack of blacks in Iowa.
  • Reminders that Greasy Joe, being the “foreign policy guru” that Barry O needs him to be, didn’t notice any “bad guys” in Iraq.
  • Barry O must not have vetted his mate very well, because Biden’s got ties to his son’s lobbying firm.
  • Biden can at least take some credit for uniting Iraqis of different sects.  Greasy Joe, being the “foreign policy guru”, came up with the craptastic idea of partitioning Iraq into three different countries.  That idea was so bad that Iraqis of different blocs (Sunnis, Shias, Kurds) united in their opposition, and they credit Biden’s horrendous idea for their unity.  But I’m sure that was his goal, right?
  • McCain’s got an ad where Biden himself criticized Obama’s lack of experience, and heaped praised upon McCain.  What a difference a VP slot makes, huh?
  • Greasy Joe, being the “foreign policy guru”, thought in the wake of 9/11 that we should send the Iranians a $200 million blank check to prove to the Arab world that we weren’t going to kill them all.  Ignoring the faux pas that Iranians aren’t Arabs (maybe all those “clean, articulate” brown people look alike to him?), did anyone clue Capt. Oblivious in to the fact that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism who is intent on getting nuclear weapons?

I’m not suggesting that a bad VP pick is necessarily going to sink a candidate.  After all, Bush’s dad survived the 1988 election with Dan Quayle.  But man, this ought to be a hoot!

Quote of the day

Probably another sign that The One made a good move in passing over VA’s Dem governor, Tim Kaine.  From Marque’s Letters:

Speaking this morning on Fox News Sunday about how the Biden pick will help Democrats in Virginia, Kaine has a curious answer:

Well, first, Joe comes from a state, Delaware, that borders Virginia. The eastern shore part of Delaware and Virginia are not only bordering but very very similar.

Um…no, Magellan, it doesn’t.  The eastern shore of Delaware borders…well, the Atlantic Ocean.  And a 50-mile stretch of MD, if you want to get technical.  But VA?  Not quite.  One would think the governor of a state would know his state’s borders.
