Earth to Joe, Come In, Joe

For those of you not from the Philly, tri-state area, Sen. Joe Biden from DE thinks that he has an actual chance of becoming the next President of the United States. Years back, he plagiarized his speeches, and made false claims about his family background. He also had hair plugs years back, too-suspiciously around the time he had a brain tumor removed. Well, a few months ago he made a remark about bumping into South Asian Indians at 7-11 and Dunkin Donuts. Now he is looking to implant his other foot into his extremely wide mouth. I wonder what would happen if say, Frist or another Republican said things Biden has. (BTW, there have been bonehead comments in recent weeks by Republicans, but Biden is a repeat offender, big time.) This article in total was lifted from AP.
Biden not worried about Southern Dems

Sen. Joseph Biden (news, bio, voting record) says he can hold his own in a 2008 presidential primary against Democratic contenders from the South, noting that his home state of Delaware was a "slave state."
Biden dismissed the notion that he was a "Northeastern liberal" who would have a poor showing in the South against other likely contenders such as Virginia Gov. Mark Warner and former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee.
"Better than anybody else," Biden said, when asked on "Fox News Sunday" to rate his chances of winning Southern states.
"You don't know my state," he said. "My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth-largest black population in the country. My state is anything from a Northeast liberal state."
The last three Democrats to win the presidency — Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Lyndon Johnson — came from the southern states of Arkansas, Georgia and Texas, respectively.
