Palin, Suddenly Concerned About ‘Black Americans,’ Suggests Obama Should Drop Biden for Hillary
If you can believe this, Republicans and right wing bloggers are now demanding that Joe Biden be replaced on the Obama campaign ticket.
Sarah Palin’s word salad on this subject is especially ripe with fragrant irony:
There weren’t enough groans and boos when he said such a disgusting comment, really, especially to a demographic there that is — includes about 48 percent of the community being black Americans.
Greta, if that’s not the nail in the coffin, really, the strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary. And I don’t want to throw out that suggestion and have them actually accept the suggestion because then an Obama-Hillary Clinton ticket would have a darn good chance of winning.
But really, Joe Biden really drags down that ticket.
Isn’t that precious? Sarah Palin, suddenly all protective of the feelings of “black Americans.” And “drags down the ticket?” Hah! Rarely has a political figure evinced such a child-like lack of self-awareness.
White House press secretary Jay Carney addressed this mind-numbingly stupid diversionary tactic today:
President Obama has no intention of getting rid of Vice President Biden as his running mate, the White House said Thursday.
Republicans are being “ridiculous” and are trying to “distract attention” with their focus on Vice President Biden and his controversial comments earlier this week, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.
“They know that what they’re saying about this is ridiculous,” Carney said at a briefing with reporters, adding that it’s an “obvious” attempt to take attention away from policy issues.
Carney’s right — they do know it’s ridiculous. It’s a cynical attempt to incite racial grievances; in other words, standard Republican politics.
