Sen. Biden stumps in Kentucky (Biden:"I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throats")

"If I'm the nominee, Republicans will be sorry," said Biden, a Roman Catholic who ran for president in 1988. "The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat."

Biden said that in most cases, Democrats have themselves to blame for losing in so-called red states such as Kentucky and Ohio.

"We have put up too many candidates who can't connect with middle-class Americans," he said. "In the last two (presidential elections), the Democratic Party has lost its base, the middle-class votes. ... And we have played into the hands of the Republicans. We've allowed so-called social issues to be so divisive."

State Sen. Julian Carroll, a Frankfort Democrat and former governor, agreed. He said the party has to seek out the voters it is losing to Republican candidates.

"If we define who we are, the middle class will vote Democratic again," Carroll said.

We've allowed so-called social issues

What delicate phrasing !

I mean, who's more a man of the people than Hairplug Biden? I mean he's got to connect with at least half of Delaware's vast populace, hasnt he?

Yeah, Joe. Partial-birth abortion is really appealing to middle-class Kentuckians. Threats of violence are also really religious sounding.

Now that is the making of a campaign slogan!

Then why was Howard Dean terrified of admitting to Chrissy Matthews that the Rats are the party of abortion?

Senator Biden is such a humongous putz.

I followed this guy's career since he was elected to the Senate in 1970s. He was a knucklehead then and today he acts as though he has a PhD in Knuckleheadedness.

I'll bet Seantor Biden doesn't even know how to say the Rosary.

Schmuck.

"The truth of the matter is the Democratic Party has, of the last two elections, lost its base - middle-class votes," Biden said. "We have disconnected from them, my party. And we have also played into the hands of the Republicans, in my view, in that we've allowed the so-called social issues to be so divisive."

Get real Joe. You think a better fiscal policy with a few more sops to the middle class will make us forget that you are the party that wants to teach third graders how to put condoms on bananas, give intrusive sex surveys to first graders, and let junior high girls have abortions without their parents knowledge.

"If I'm the nominee, Republicans will be sorry,"

Unless the GOP goes 1996 again, Senator Biden, most would relish your being the nominee. Of course, you will have to step over Kerry-Kennedy, no small feat -- unless Teddy diets again, and get in front of HRClinton. Visualize that, Senator--having HRClinton on your backside. Do you have eyes in the back of your head? Do you have the cajones to challenge her????

That's a wild roundhouse punch thrown at Gore and Kerry.

The plagiarist fancies himself a pugilist.

Nice to see he's starting with the already-beaten-silly pugs before working his way up through the ranks. He'll never get past Butterbean Hillary though, so Republicans don't have to study his tapes.
