Joe Biden Confuses Barack Obama For Geico Cavemen
— Ace

Biden's all impressed with Obama because, it seems, he uses soap.

I'm not sure I care about this story, but everyone else seems to, and I guess it's kind of fun to knock Joe Biden, who, ummm, is "running for President," he says, in much the same way this is a "very smart military blog."

P'Shop: El Capitan already made the Geico connection:

BidenCaveman.jpg


Obama Messiah Watch: The media and Democratic Party (but I repeat myself), being simultaneously stupid, out-of-control true-believer partisans, and pretty racist, is now just praising Barack Obama for crap that anyone can do. Slate's generally-useless Tim Noah has started the Obama Messiah Watch to document this phenomenon. First entry? Lavishing praise upon Obama for actually managing to take coherent notes as a student:

In [political science professor Roger] Boesche's European politics class, [classmate Ken] Sulzer said he was impressed at how few notes [italics Noah's] Obama took. "Where I had five pages, Barry had probably a paragraph of the pithiest, tightest prose you'd ever see. … It was very short, very sweet. Obviously somebody almost Clintonesque in being able to sum a whole lot of concepts and place them into a succinct written style."

And now Joe Biden is praising Obama's Christ-like perserverence in managing to shower five or six times a week.

Good Lord.

Coming Soon: Hillary! praises Obama's "moderation" in "limiting himself to just three or four carjackings per year."

2 I grew up in Delaware. And I still wouldn't vote for him. I always wondered if I'd cross party lines to get a guy from the Motherland in the White House.
No, thanks.

3 I may donate to Biden's campaign simply for the comic value. Kerry and Hillary! keep complaining about how they botch jokes but good old Joe just keeps them coming.

Imagine for a moment however that a Republican had said this. Think it would be major news for a few days?

4 Shortest Presidential Campaign in the history of the US.

It's really gonna be tough to beat Joe's record for the time between announcement and campaign-destroying moment.  Hell, at least Howard Dean made it to the primaries before he imploded.

7 You know, it's fun to make fun of Biden for this and all, but must we always make a freakin big deal out of every little slip a person makes when it comes to referring to blacks?

It's like some sacred cow and it's ridiculous.

I care about what he "meant" about as much as you cared about what Trent Lott meant.  And even if that is what he meant, it is still incredibly racist and offensive.

Keep spinning , uloser.  You're looking stupider than usual and your hypocrisy is quite humorous.

9 I actually agree with you, RWS, but to hell with him. If I'm in a fistfight and some guy punches me in the nuts, then I'm going to gouge his eyes.

13 I couldn't help but make the connection. Biden's Caveman mentality about the War, Bush, America, Life, and small fur-bearing creatures is so apparent.

He just boosted Obama's ratings ten-fold.

It looks like he's doing a parody of how liberals view how conservatives view blacks, like we do sometimes. In other words making fun of libtards....but he is a libtard.....so he's making fun of himself?  


That's weird.

He can't be racist, then.

Where, oh where are the vaunted PC mandarins who what to lower the boom on retardo college kids for drinking 40s? C'mon, I know they're going to come up with something to express their OUTRAGE over Biden's remarks. No?

Clean as a whistle- - i.e. never killed a bitch while DUIing his ass around town over small bodies of water.

SEriously, Biden meant a criminal record.


That's probably MORE racist, since obviously, Obama uses soap.

26 Biden's a full-on prick, but when you consider the caliber of congressmen he's surrounded by, his comment isn't so much a racial slam as a sigh of relief.

Let's fire up the universal translator:

"He's articulate..."
- He's not a loud-mouthed circus clown like Al Sharpton

"...bright..."
- He's no Cynthia McKinney

"...and clean..."
- Not all greasy-looking, like Charlie Rangel

"...and a nice-looking guy."
- Unlike that sourpuss, Maxine Waters

I mean, lets face it: the Dems haven't exactly been pulling from the best and brightest of the African-American community.

55 Joe Biden is the single best example of why we desperately need a law that your i.q. should be at least 50 to be a member of Congress. O.K., 40 to be a Senator.
Unfortunately, he is the single worst example of why you should try the Hair Club for Men.
Sadly, he is just another example of the self-righteous left who profess to be soooo not racist, then whomp, there it is.
It is better to be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and prove it.

56 1) I've been away for a few days - is "ulost" or "ulooze" or whatever for real?

2) It's a shame Biden's such a goon, because he's the only Democrat, or Republican for that matter, who has any sort of a plan in between The Urge to Surge and the Retreat That Dare Not Speak Its Name.

57 Personally, I read "clean" in the sense that there are no dirty secrets to find. Or not-so-secrets. Nothing Clintonesque or Kennedian.

58 Eh, give Biden a break. He is, after all, a notorious plagiarist, so he was probably just repeating something he heard someone else say.

59 Clean to Donks=Broke. The bastard hasn't been there/done anyhing to get any kickbacks yet. That alone tells me he is too stupid for Prez. Bush/Cheney is in it for Haliburton. Clinton did it for CASH, period, and Hillary was always the "bagman What did Biden really mean,,,"even blind people standing next to him, would vote for him, what with the soap and all. "?

Posted by: hutch1200 at January 31, 2007 02:17 PM (D9fAY)

60 I think Biden realizes that he has no chance of getting nominated so he might as well say whatever comes to mind. I actually found his trash talk about Hillary!, Obama, and Edwards rather amusing. I also think that he was ridiculing the media's infatuation with Obama, rather than saying what he himself thinks. He also may be right about dividing Iraq. Fookin Sunnis and Shiites can't live with each other, might as well separate 'em. Anybody got a better idea?

Posted by: Pervy Grin at January 31, 2007 02:25 PM (zVHNC)

61 When I say, "articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," all I really mean is that -- compared to darkies like Jesse, Rev. Al, Maxine, Cynthia, and the rest of the famous ones -- Obama has much lighter skin, because he's only half-Negro.

I'm dead meat, aren't I?

62 Let's put this in perspective. When he rummaged through his Mom's various sayings he could have landed on 'dumb as a box of hammers', 'crazy like a fox' or 'mouthy as a son named Joe'. All things considered, clean as a whistle was a stroke of good fortune.

*sigh* Just for you, ulost:


For example, the leftwing blogosphere is fond of portraying the right as paranoid racists who crap their pants at the sight of a "brown person". It's a running shtick, they do, and if you read leftwing blogs, you must be somewhat familiar with it. 


So we at AOSHQ have sarcastically embraced this misconception and use it for parody.


The Scandi stuff is just a ridiculous extention of that.

Biden has missed the obvious way out of this mess.  He just has to say that he got the "clean" comment from a Neil Kinnock speech.


Posted by: averyspecialepisode at February 01, 2007 05:35 AM (6YRS5)

81 Will SOMEONE please tell me what I am missing here? I honestly don't see how calling someone "Clean" or "articulate" as being race-charged words.

Now, if Biden had said " Obama? Hell, that boy is defineatly House-Nigger material! Shit, I'd let that Sambo polish my shoes any day! A Jigaboo like Obama probably has magic spit! I'd even tip him a dime." Then I could see it, but calling him a "clean African-American" just does'nt click with me.

Posted by: Swiftsure at February 01, 2007 11:36 AM (Qwq4Z)

82 I don't see the big deal either. He may have meant clean as meaning "not corrupt" - who knows? Who really cares?

Posted by: John Hay at February 01, 2007 02:12 PM (T5ubj)

83 In [political science professor Roger] Boesche's European politics class, [classmate Ken] Sulzer said he was impressed at how few notes [italics Noah's] Obama took. "Where I had five pages, Barry had probably a paragraph of the pithiest, tightest prose you'd ever see. … It was very short, very sweet. Obviously somebody almost Clintonesque in being able to sum a whole lot of concepts and place them into a succinct written style."

Gee, if Obama gets this kind of accolade for only managing to scratch off one paragraph of notes, I wonder how scary-smart this person thinks Obama would be if he just wrote nothing. And kinda stared out the window, occasionally blowing snot bubbles.

I generally raise an eyebrow when someone is effusively praised for doing less - targets of that kind of praise often turn out to be the intelligently dumb types prominently featured in Office Space.
