THE PLANK FEBRUARY 2, 2007
The Joe Biden apology tour (masquerading as a presidential campaign) continues apace. From today's New York Daily News:
Back-pedaling at warp speed after a bumbling comment about black politicians, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Joe Biden made an appearance yesterday on the Rev. Al Sharpton's radio show, lavishing Sharpton with praise and even throwing in an "I love ya, Al" for good measure.
"Al, I wasn't in any way criticizing you or Jesse [Jackson]. I was not making a historical reference," Biden insisted. "I said what I said, and then there was a comma, and I said, 'and clean,' meaning fresh, new, exciting. That's what I meant."
The things you have to do if you want to be president. . . .
