At Least He'll Get the Boy Scout Vote

We are still trying to figure out what Joe Biden brings to the Obama ticket, and are reminded of this gaffe, which Joe Biden made back on January 31, 2007 in describing his then fellow candidate Barack Obama:

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy, I mean, that's a storybook, man."

At the time, all the Obama could say was that the comment was "historically inaccurate," pointing to presidential contenders Jesse Jackson (1984, 1988) and Al Sharpton (2004). The better response was from Al Sharpton, who said "I take a bath every day."

We can only think they are going for the Boy Scout vote. Here is an excerpt from the Boy Scout Law: "A Scout is Clean. A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean. He chooses the company of those who live by high standards. He helps keep his home and community clean."
