Crazy Joe is at it again, but I wonder whether this time he isn’t so crazy. What he is doing is accusing the Republicans of wanting to return black folks to slavery. He was speaking from a teleprompter in front of a mostly black audience. Was this merely a case of demented old Joe straying off message?
I suspect that this plays well with a majority of black voters which is probably why the Obama campaign says they’re “down with it.”
Let me be the first to declare Joe the first black vice president. A few years ago he described Obama as “clean and articulate,” and now he’s talkin’ like a brother.
It’s like the old Dick Gregory observation about the late Michael Jackson: Where else but in America can a poor black boy grow up to become a rich white man?
Only in America can a poor white Irish-American kid from Scranton grow up to become the first black Vice President of the United States.
Is this a great country or what?
