Honestly, I don’t see what the big deal is over Joe Biden’s remark about Indian-Americans operating 7-11 and Dunkin’ Donut stores in Delaware. There are plenty of reasons to roll your eyes when Biden opens his mouth. This doesn’t make my list. It is a fact that a lot of Indian-Americans own such franchises (which screen employees to ensure they are here legally, by the way). No reason to get the p.c. vapors over his clumsy little crack making that basic observation.
Goes without saying, of course, that if the comments came out of a GOP senator’s mouth, the NYTimes and company would go ape.
Plus, it sure is weird how Dems are so comfortable making cracks at Indians’ expense.
While we’re on the subject of Dems on tape, Allah has video highlights and blow(hard)-by-blow(hard) of the Lieberman/Lamont debate.
