Point Blank

My point is these freaking Indians are everywhere.

It is sometimes a wonder as to what is going on the heads of our so-called leaders. At this stage of his political career, one might expect that Joe Biden would be possessed of a little more circumspection than his recent remarks -- on CSPAN no less -- might suggest. He wasn't exactly chumming around the locker room when he said,
In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking.
I'm not joking either. CSPAN.

Naturally, the "my remarks were taken out of context" defense was quickly employed, to most everyone's amusement. And more hilariously, a Biden spokesman further defended the ingracious senator with a statement that Biden relished Delaware's "vibrant" multi-cultural community:
The point Senator Biden was making is that there has been a vibrant Indian-American community in Delaware for decades. It has primarily been made up of engineers, scientists and physicians, but more recently, middle-class families are moving into Delaware and purchasing family-run small businesses.
I wonder if the Indian-American community appreciate Biden's subtlety in making this point. I know I do.

Ah, Biden. Good Republican, that. He's been fighting alongside Lieberman, Bayh, et al, to curtail growing Democratic advocacy of ending the Iraq genocide.

Side note: Biden, along with Colin Powell, met with Pakistani ISI Director Lt. Gen. Mahmood Ahmed in the week following the 9/11 attacks, to discuss Pakistan's position in the newborn War on Terror. (The ISI being the Pakistan-based puppet of the CIA.) Mahmood is the man who had the $110,000 wired to Mohammed Atta, one of the alleged hijackers. I wonder what Biden and Powell and Mahmood talked about. Not saying anything in particular here...just passing the info along.
