Biden Should Apologize For Chains Remark Says… The BOSTON GLOBE?
What bizarro universe did I wake up in today?
The Boston Globe is criticizing a Democrat? What the hell is going on???
When Vice President Joe Biden warned a Virginia rally of hundreds of African Americans that Republican efforts to loosen bank regulations meant “They’re going to put y’all back in chains,” Stephanie Cutter, Team Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said the president would have “no problem with those comments.”
But imagine if Republican Paul Ryan uttered comments like that. Mitt Romney’s pick for vice president would be pilloried for racial insensitivity — and so would Romney. In the fight for civility and substance over pointless hyperbole, Biden may not be the worst offender. But he’s an offender nonetheless, and he should apologize.
Be sure to read it all.
Moe Lane of Red State is also stunned…
The surreal part? There’s nothing in the editorial that I can legitimately complain about. The closest is when they say “In the fight for civility and substance over pointless hyperbole, Biden may not be the worst offender,” but even then I’m forced to admit that this is true – besides, the editorial immediately followed with “But he’s an offender nonetheless, and he should apologize.” It’s like the Boston Globe decided that it was going to be, well, fair.
Strange days, my droogies. Strange days.
Strange days indeed.
