Well well well

Interesting story from WSJ "Best of the Web" today:

Sen. Joe Biden, who is thought to be mulling a presidential run, showed up in South Carolina the other day, where he made a comment that ought to raise some eyebrows. The State of Columbia, S.C., reports: *** QUOTE *** The senator . . . pounced on a member's announcement that the club would hold its annual Christmas party at the state Department of Archives and History where members could view the original copy of the state's Articles of Secession. Biden asked, "Where else could I go to a Rotary Club where (for a) Christmas party the highlight is looking at the Articles?" Biden was on a roll.
Delaware, he noted, was a "slave state that fought beside the North. That's only because we couldn't figure out how to get to the South. There were a couple of states in the way." *** END QUOTE ***

So here's my question for the day: How long will it be before Biden is forced to resign from the Senate for making such a racist, pro-slavery comment?

Is that the sound of crickets chirping? Thought so.

They'd be chirping on campus too, if it hadn't been so cold lately.
