Video: Biden manages to avoid saying anything overtly racist on "The Daily Show"

That actually qualifies as news at this point, doesn’t it?

I’m behind schedule this morning because of the Arkin audio editing but here’s a nice bit o’ filler from last night’s TDS. Stewart benefited from some serendipitous scheduling and Biden benefited from the opportunity to lavish praise on bright, clean, articulate, nice-looking Barack Obama in front of a national audience. Congrats to Joe for resisting the urge to describe him as “affable.”

The New York Times’s take on this jawdropping display of racism from a prominent Democrat: “Oops!”

Exit question: Why doesn’t Comedy Central just tack on an ad at the beginning and YouTube this crap instead?
