There is, they insist, no other remedy to this serious affront to civil society. It seems Joe Biden uttered the forbidden word -- chains. Out loud. Where black people could hear him.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)The Conservative Rights Strike Force, with their long history of great concern for the blah community, will not allow such a grave abuse of syntax go unchallenged.
JOSEPH BIDEN, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Romney wants to let—he said in the first hundred days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street!
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Boo!
BIDEN: They’re going to put y’all back in chains!

Let us recall, from like an hour ago, that His Lord High Hairgel Mittens of Romney could not come up with anything actually wrong with what Old Handsome Joe said, except that it was “divisive” and “not uplifting” and “inaccurate” in that it said Mitt Romney wanted to deregulate Wall Street, which is only on his website. (Also, the Obama campaign seeks to divide on “ethnic” lines.) What does Sarah Palin think about Romney’s recent remarks? Are they “disgusting” and divisive? Let us go to the blockquote.Click the link if you care for a bite of Griftzilla's word salad. Which isn't really worth it. But the full platter of high grade snark at Wonkette is always satisfying.
This whole charade brings up three thoughts. One, Willard Rmoney is never going to get a gig at Fox News. Good thing he doesn't need the money. Two, this united call to oust Joe Biden suggests the GOPers are terrified of what he'll do to Ryan in the debates. And three, I suspect the push for Hillary is because they really want to finally get to use all that oppo they accumulated back in 2008, which was sadly rendered useless when that uppity "blah" usurper moved into their White House instead.
