The clean, articulate black guy and the coal miner’s son

What a laugh.
Because while we assume that Obama bathes regularly Joe Biden is not a coal miner’s son.
But he used to think that he was.
Or at least Biden went around the country telling people that he was.
He has not made that claim recently so maybe with the proper medication he’s more in touch with reality today.
But who knows when the drugs might wear off and leave Biden barking at the moon?
“Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden Jr., a U.S. senator from Delaware, was driven from the nomination battle after delivering, without attribution, passages from a speech by British Labor party leader Neil Kinnock. A barrage of subsidiary revelations by the press also contributed to Biden's withdrawal: a serious plagiarism incident involving Biden during his law school years; the senator's boastful exaggerations of his academic record at a New Hampshire campaign event; and the discovery of other quotations in Biden's speeches pilfered from past Democratic politicians.“
Oh say it ain’t so, Joe!
But it is.
“Then came that August day at the Iowa State Fairgrounds when Biden simply became British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock—acting out, without any attribution, Kinnock’s entire working-class shtick:“Why is it that my wife…is the ﬁrst in her family ever to go to college? Is it because they didn’t work hard? My ancestors, who worked in the coal mines of northeast Pennsylvania and would come up after twelve hours and play football for four hours?” Campaign aides spun it as an homage, even though Jill Biden was not the ﬁrst in her family to attend college and Joe Biden, unlike Kinnock, did not have coal-mining ancestors. And when it later came to light that Biden had failed to cite Bobby Kennedy in a speech, that he’d also claimed (falsely) to have attended Syracuse University law school on a full academic scholarship and to have graduated in the top half of his class, and that he’d received an F in a law-school class for an apparent act of plagiarism…well,“homage” didn’t quite cover it. At best, Biden was a careless, immature overstriver. At worst, he was a liar. Either way, as Republican consultant Eddie Mahe told The New York Times that year,“What all of this means in a nutshell is that Joe Biden will never be elected president of this country.””
Poor Joe, poor Barack.
