    WASHINGTON — They say the main thing standing between Joe Biden and the White House is Joe Biden’s mouth.

    The would-be presidential candidate proved it again on a recent trip to New Hampshire, where C-Span cameras caught him telling an Indian-American activist that Indian-Americans are the fastest-growing immigrant group in Delaware.

    In fact, Biden said, “You cannot go into a Dunkin Donuts or a 7-Eleven unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

    Where is the outrage? He makes a politically incorrect, somewhat racist statement and gets a pass?

    Oh.....never mind.

    He's a Democrat.

    I know. I doubt he can chew gum and walk at the same time. He recently said, to the effect, "I'd rather be making love to my wife with the kids asleep, than run for President." Now his youngest is 25. Someone has a serious problem...:laugh:

    "Why are you calling me - long distance - at 3 a.m., Dad? Well, yes - I WAS asleep! You want to do WHAT to my mother??!!"

    The power of the alternatively-positioned comma:

    "I'd rather be making love to my wife with the kids, asleep, than run for President."

    Perhaps our incest-loving libs wouldn't mind this, though. :eek2: :D

    Yeah, remember Bill Frist? He sure didn't get much of a pass for making a statement that was misconstrued. Where's the MSM when it's a Dem?

    Which is not HERE, in this thread. They'll just pretend it doesn't exist until it goes away, as usual.

    I've never thought of myself as a 'language arts' person. Seems that the journalism and literature courses through me the endorsement. :laugh: Yeah, I took 3 Brit Lits, 3 American Lits, Shakespeare I and II. Started out as Journalism major so have 4 courses in that.

    Does that mean I know grammar? :laugh: Next to my printer: A Manual for Writers 5th Ed. Kate L. Turabian :teeth:

    Not to mention the dictionary and thesaurus. ;)
