MSNBC guest: Biden’s racial gaffes are rather refreshingly politically incorrect, aren’t they?

Golly, maybe this has been McCain’s problem all along. When the dumbest hacks in the lefty blogosphere attacked him for coded messages in the Britney ad, I thought they were objecting to the alleged message. Turns out they were probably just objecting to the fact that it was coded. If only Maverick had been forthright and thrown in a bon mot about Barry O being “clean,” the freshness of his candor would have charmed us all and been celebrated as a political strength. Except, of course, by Kos, who once declared that sort of condescension to be career-killing “in a just world.” I wonder if he’s changed his mind.

On any other day, this would take the prize for the most embarrassing race-related spin among the commentariat. But not today. Click the image to watch.

Update: Yep, looks like he’s changed his mind.

Update: Goldstein sums up:

All of which points back to the animating tenet in “liberal” ideology — namely, that, simply by virtue of adopting the left-liberal agenda, one is good, and so his “mistakes” are but minor slip-ups, hiccups in a life of sublime goodliness. Whereas any kind of minor slip-up by those on the “right” (classical liberals included, these days) are to be seen as brief inadvertent flashes revealing their grubby souls — even when those flashes are either admittedly unintended, or else have to be run through a special code book to prove visible to the watchdogs of all that is good and righteous.

Update: Advice from Ace on how McCain can prove his own refreshing political incorrectness.

Biden rated F by the NRA

Obama thought that the D.C. gun ban was constitutional, and voted in Illinois to outlaw.

FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban.

Obama/Biden against the 2nd Amendment

They’re Baaaaaack!

The two biggest media cheerleaders for Barack Obama are back in full swing this morning. I can’t say enough how wonderful it’s been having the Olympics replace the two biggest blowhards television has produced. Chrissy (Obama sends a shiver up my leg) Matthews and Keith (I hate Bush to the 10th power) Olbermann are in full kiss-ass mode calling the Obama/Biden pair the “dream team”. Olby just said not minutes ago that “last night Biden wanted to leave his driveway and drive straight to the White House and tell Bush (paraphrasing) that he knows what the world needs” implying that Biden is the gift to the worlds (and Obama’s) foreign policy woes.

Why is it when I listen to these two my blood pressure rise’s and I feel like I need a shower?

You have courage; how you stand MSNBC at all is amazing.

Actually, CF, if you can stomach these morons for a bit, you don’t have to see the talking points from the leftoids at Kos, DU, et all, (to see what they’re up to). Most of it is a direct re-run of “Mutt and Jeff”—”Laural n Hardy”

Biden’s all set to show up in half-blackface for the convention.

On a somewhat different note: Has anyone else noticed that many (if not all) Liberal/Progressive comment’s feature the worst possible grammar and spelling possible?

The persons whom post these comments are supposed to be the intelligent one’s , as far as they are concerned.

Yet whenever I go to a blog/site that features comment’s by both Conservatives and Liberals I can always tell what political persuasion the poster hails from simply by the spelling and grammar of said poster.

The heights of indignation and anger are usually equal to the language and spelling mistakes as well. Has anyone else noticed this?

They don’t call it “drunk with anger” for nothing.

This isn’t just the “Great Trainwreck of Summer” it’s the “Great Train Wreck of Summer in Technicolor”.

Now it is absolutely clear that what a person says isn’t what makes them “racist”. It’s simply whether they vote “for the cause”. It just proves what I’ve been saying for years:

rā’cist: adj. Opposed to leftist doctrine.

Gaffes, not really from plagiarizer Joe. Less political BS, and more substance, like reducing our need for foreign oil, and lower prices at the pump.
