So yesterday I touched down in Denver for the Democratic National Convention around 3 pm and have pretty much been drinking ever since.  I'm not really a big drinker, but it's sort of tough to abstain when people keep throwing drinks at you. And let me tell you, the folks from the Service Employees International Union, the Young Democrats of America and the Congressional Black Caucus are really good at throwing drinks at people. But enough about me and my drunken exploits at the convention, check the run down on Joe Biden:

As most of you guys know, last week Barack Obama picked Joe Biden to be his running mate.  If you've been following this blog you know that I think Obama should have picked Hillary Clinton. After all, he is now tied with John McCain in just about every major poll after being in front by nearly 10 points.  In fact, I was watching CNN this morning and they highlighted that there has been a significant backlash from Hillary supporters who are mad that Obama didn't pick HRC. I guess nearly 30% of her supporters say that they are going to vote for McCain.  YIKES!!!  But I guess Obama knows what he is doing.

So in the spirit of coalition building and winning I've decided to put together a list of "The Top 5 Things You Should Know About Joe Biden." Hopefully this list will help America make the right choice on election day. If not, I'm moving to Canada.

1. Joe Biden Thinks Obama is a "Clean" and "Articulate" Negro

In 2007, Joe Biden said that Barack Obama was, "The first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."  Although he later apologized for these insensitive comments, I think that Joe Biden might have just got his Ebonics confused. I mean he prolly heard that Outkast jam  "So Fresh and So Clean" and figured he was complimenting Young Barry.

2. He Was One of the Earliest Supporters of The War

In 2002 Biden was one of the earliest supporters of the war.  He later said he made a mistake and has actually been working hard to stop the war. Hopefully he won't flip flop if Obama gets elected. I mean that new HBO mini series Generation Kill has really been convincing me that it's not cool to be killing Iraqi children.

3. He Use to Stu...Stu...Stutter...Mu'f@cker

Like James Earl Jones, Van Jones and Marilyn Monroe, Joe Biden overcame a childhood stuttering problem.  A lot of people make fun of stutters, but not me. I mean, I never had a speech problem but I can just imagine how scared stutterers have to be when they step to the mic.  Props to Joe Biden for getting over his problems.

4. He Was One of the Youngest Politicians to Ever Get Elected to The US Senate.

In 1972, at the age of 29, Joe Biden was elected to the US Senate. Can you imagine having that much confidence to think that you could actually be a Senator before you turn 30?.  Most of ya'll are just learning to piss straight. (Sorry to all the female readers for the super insensitive male reference but I have too big of a hangover to think of any other cool metaphors.)

5. He is an Old White Guy From Delaware

I'm not sure if any of you guys noticed it or not, but Joe Biden is an old white guy.  And although he grew up in Scranton, PA, he spent most of his formative years in Delaware. I'm sure that he doesn't have a lot of constituents of color, but Obama prolly figured that it was a good idea to have an old white guy on his team. After all, what would the White House be with out an old white guy working there.

For those of us that actually read the newspaper, watch CNN and read Newsweek more than once a year, we knew exactly who and what Biden was before the ink was dry.

He is just like the rest of the white guys. He is going to remind white voters that someone else is really in charge and that whatever happens there surely won't be a "Black House" any time soon.

This is no surprise as no one who is seriously involved or interested in politics believes that Obama was really going to be running America after Nov. 2008.

Biden is to Obama what Cheney is Bush. Except Biden provides protection from Unfounded fear, while Bush was simply a screen for getting Cheney to do the real dirty work.

AS A HILARY CLINTON SUPPORTER HE SHOULD HAVE PICKED HER, AND THATS ONE OF THE REASON WHY IM NOT VOTING FOR HIM. EVER SINCE HILARY LOST THE NOMINATION SHE HAS BEEN NOUGHING BUT NICE TO HIM AND HAS BEEN DOING HER BEST TO CAMPAIGN FOR HIM SO HE CAN GET ELECTED PRESIDENT. BUT WHAT DOES HE DO HE DOESN'T EVEN CONSIDER HER FOR VICE PRESIDENT, THAT IS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO HER 18 MILLION SUPPORTERS. INSTEAD HE PICKS SOMEONE WHO SAYS HE ISN'T READY TO BE PRESIDENT AND VOTED FOR THE WAR SOMETHING THAT HE DIDN'T VOTE FOR AND GOT ON HILARY FOR VOTING FOR. HYPOCRITE THATS ALL HE IS!!! SO TO ALL YOU HILARY CLINTON SUPPORTERS I ENCOURAGE YOU TO VOTE FOR MCCAIN. LETS MAKE SURE THIS OBAMA GUY DOESN'T GET PRESIDENT.

mixed chik....you spelled hillary wrong.

For two.....Can the WINNER pick who he is COMFORTABLE with and not who YOU want him to pick!?! gadamn!

Three.....She dont like him...He dont like her....Her husband dont like him. Bad Fit.

Four......CHANGE you can believe in......LAst 3 decades been Bush and Clinton. Time for CHANGE.

Assholes man....I tell ya.

5th......OBAMA is a clean and articulate negro. Unlike alot of niggas I know! I mean...hey....I wouldn't want any nigga I know to be president. Or any person for that matter. But we talkin black folks.....You know he a special kinda nigga! Aint nuthing wrong wit that.....Jordan was special. Tiger was special. Kobe. Lebron. MLK. X. etc etc....

Brotha Biko are you tipsy as you write this blog. Im amazed that you are still emotional and think Barack should have picked a former first lady. I thought YOU were more politically savy than that. If you've been following the stories Biden brings a lot of foreign issues experience to the table and he will go over after McCain.

Now what would Billary have brought to the table? her false 18 million voters?

The GOP would have loved for Barack to pick Hillary so they could have went after them with a vengeance, now they have to rethink it with Biden. See how they got ads using Hillary against Obama...you got to pay closer attention bruh and put the brews down.

SO I SPELLED HILLARY WRONG BIG DEAL. AND IM SO SICK AND TRIED OF THIS CHANGE BULLCRAP. THATS ALL HE EVER TALKS ABOUT. WHAT CHANGE IS HE GONNA MAKE THAT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN DONE. HILLARY WOULD HAVE BOUGHT HER 18 MLLION VOTERS AND THE CHANCE FOR HIM TO WIN. WITHOUT HER HE IS NOUGHING. ALL BIDEN BRINGS IS HIS 6 THOUSAND VOTERS HER GOT WHEN HE RAN AND NO CHANGE AT ALL. AS MUCH AS YOU HATE HILARY YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A WINNING TICKET.

the main problem with this whole thing theres to much control over obama... the people behind him are the ones really pulling all the strings and thats the truth here in chicago we know things that arent in the media...if he doesnt want hill and bill fine so stop asking them to help him them period...another fact if you guys remember mccain asked him to meet him at town hall meetings and he said he would....then behind the scenes the puppetmasters said that wouldnt work to there favor....then there was saddleback and they said told you so.....as long as they can control that atmosphere its cool but when you have to go off the cuff with mccain or hillary he always looks like hes got to make sure he doesnt say anything to upset his puppetmasters....

we have many many great black leaders young and old that will never stop....the obama move started 4 years ago when these people picked him to speak in boston so for four years this has been planned....just like when jackie robinson was picked there were many other black ballplayers who were great but maybe couldnt be molded the right way in being first....the thing for all black people to remember we need all black people to work together all the time not because we may have a black president but because we are black everyday and we shouldnt need a event to get together .....like seeing family members only at events we are family everyday....will obama make us stop having black on black crime will he make us start getting degrees will he make us creat businesses...we should already be promoting that....he wont be the president of black america but all america....we the people can make a better nation not just by who we select but by what we select to do in our lives

Biko, put down that 'Yak. Next you'll be writing that you ended up face down in an alley with your pants and undewear pulled down to your knees. Know when to say when my brotha.


Anyways, here's some things you "innocently" forgot to mention about Biden.

1. He once boasted about his home state of Delaware that “Delaware was a slave state that fought beside the North. That’s only because we couldn’t figure out how to get to the South." (Isn't Obama half white and half Black? Part of Obama should be pissed at Biden for saying that shit).

2. You all know the insensative remarks he made about Arabs and 7-11. (Isn't Barack Heussein Obama an Arab? LOL. Just kidding).


3. Biden's son is a LOBBYIST for BIG DRUG COMPANIES. (I thought Obama was fiercely against lobbyist being involved in his campaign).

I know Biko, you just forgot to mention these points. You get the perverbial pass because this part of this website is the best.


Peace all.

Biden "I would be proud to run with McCain"

More lies.

sSOME OF THE MOST IGNORANT SHIT I'VE EVER READ ON THIS SITE, APART FROM SOME OF MY OWN COMMENTS

[1] Biden endorsed JOHN McCAIN as Kerry's VP in 2004.

[2] Biden (On Obama): "I mean, you got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."

[3] Biden (On Obama): "I think he can be ready, but right now I don't believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends to on-the-job-training."

[4] Biden: "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

[5] Biden (On McCain): "John McCain is a personal friend, a great friend, and I would be honoured to run with or against John McCain, because I think the country would be better off."

Shall I continue?

This is who he selects? I'd say this speaks to his decision making skills (or lack thereof).

Maybe Biden wasnt the best selection, and maybe HRC would have guaranteed the presidential nomination. But it wouldnt have been worth it, this could not have gone down because we would have a White House divided. You would have the Clintin (along with bill) faction against the Obama team. The Clintons dont know how to play second fiddle to anyone. Hill was at odds with Gore when he was vice pres and she was only the first lady. Can you imagine the disruption and confusion she would cause in the white house as the vice pres. She cant even fall back and let Obama have his moment now that she's lost. Not to make it a race thing but this is supposed to be a special time for black America. Not to mention she'd probably be the head conspiritor in plotting his assasination. LOL, I'm just kidding, you overzealous Clinton Supporters. I'm tired of HRC supporters saying "we're going to vote for McCain in the up coming election", thats how fickle these people are. The only reason she went out to stump for Obama is because she needed help recouping the debt her campaign incurred, and she needed democrat party and Obama's donors support, so she had to play nice. So HRC supporters please stop you're childish nonsence (ex in a childish immature voice: "I'm not voting for Obama unless Hillary is on the ticket") and vote for the democrat, unless you want our troops to stay in iraq for 100+ years, you want the economy to continue to fail, you want your job to continue laying people off, you like to see the collapse of entire corporations, you want gas prices to keep rising, you want to see more home forclosure, you want to see more guns in the black community, you want your right to choose (possibly) taken away, you want to see more innocent people die because of the death penalty. and yes there have been innocent people murdered by the death penalty, while the real killers have gotten away. Not to mention 9/11, Katrina all mishandled by the Republican party. So in conclusion dont vote for Obama if you want 4 more years of the above.

JusticefrmQueens: nothing you said makes any sense.

100 year war? complete BS
mishandled 9/11? how? Have we been attacked again?

You must be one of those MoveOn leftist loons.

BTW, have you ever heard of a paragraph?

You still won't make any sense, but at least it'll be somewhat readable.

Mr. Reality or lack thereof, what didn’t make sense, or maybe you’re confused when you hear reality.

1. Lets see, McCain himself said he'd be willing to stay in Iraq for 100 years if need be. That’s his quote out of his own mouth.

2. Yes mishandled, Bush had prior knowledge from the Clinton administration that Bin ladin was planning an attack on the U.S. using airplanes as weapons.

And I'll never forget the stupid look on his face when he was told we were under attack. What, did he sit there for like 10 minutes, just sitting there in front of that class looking absolutely stupid and incompetent? Sitting there like Duhh what da I do next. The kids he was reading to probably had more common sense than he does.

Then after 9/11 the govt (Christine Whitman) said the air around ground zero was clean, which was an absolute lie. I used to work a couple of blocks from the WTC, and I used to stay with a cough because of what's in the air down there. Since a started working in Midtown, I haven’t had any such issue

And you must be one of those right wing conservative hypocrite idiots who believe anything your told. Like if you don’t believe what the govt tells you it means your a loon or unpatriotic.

And something I said obviously makes sense to you because you didn’t say anything about how YOUR administration fowled up Katrina.

What am I writing a college essay where I should be structurally correct? GTFOH, this is a blog I'm not the only one not using paragraphs. Its people like you who take these forums way to seriously.
