Dear Sen Biden

This is how long their weiners are

Biden Unbound: Lays Into
Clinton, Obama, Edwards

Loquacious Senator, Democratic Candidate on Hillary: ‘Four of 10 Is the Max You Can Get?’ Edwards ‘Doesn’t Know What He’s Talking About’

Mr. Biden is equally skeptical—albeit in a slightly more backhanded way—about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Dear Sen Biden.

Sen. Obama is the "first mainstream African-American who is articulate"?

I would expect a gradute of Columbia and Harvard Law who was a former law professor to be articulate. His race should have nothing to do with that.

Would you say that John Lewis is inarticulate? Or Keith Ellison?

Senator, anyone running for office is by definition articulate. Unless you can't see past skin color..

Are Albert Wynn and Maxine Waters dirty and dull?

Senator, the fact that you rely on stereotypes, not once but on several occasions, should render you unfit to be President.
