Slow Joe Biden: "We had slaves, too!"

So definitely not back yet, but getting there --- I just wanted to sneak this little post in there about good ol' Slow Joe Biden running his mouth again on Fox News Sunday:

[Wallace:] As we've mentioned, you're in South Carolina right now, on the campaign trial. Thirty seconds or less, what kind of a chance would a Northeastern liberal like Joe Biden stand in the South if you were running in Democratic primaries against southerners like Mark Warner and John Edwards.

BIDEN: Better than anybody else. You don't know my state. My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth-largest black population in the country. My state is anything from a Northeast liberal state.

For a change, Speech-stealin' Joe is right about his facts --- Delaware was a slave-holding state.

However, as Mark Finkelstein over at Newsbusters cleverly points out,

Seemed a strange way for Joe to establish his southern street cred.

Keep running your mouth, Joe.

P.S. Did I mention I'm retaining my Delaware resident status until after the elections, just so I can vote against his spawn, Beau Biden, for attorney general?

Well, I am.
