Skip to comments.Sen. Biden stumps in Kentucky (Biden:"I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throats")
Posted on 11/03/2005 6:47:02 AM PST by Dutchgirl
"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.

Joe, we know you worship at the alter of the almighty government, so no one doubts that you are "religious."
We just say you don't act like a Christian, you liberal hump.
Here's a hint for ya,Joe....if you're pro abortion and pro homosexual marriage,then you're an Episcopalian,not a Catholic.
Pretty good lines. Wonder who wrote em ?
I'm afraid to think what he might do with a statue of a saint...

Thanks! Now I can skip lunch...I just lost my appetite.
I was thinking the exact same thing.
We have to turn (Kentucky) back into a blue state," Biden said. "We've got to be competitive in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Colorado, Florida. ...
And I think it will be the first time that Biden has actually USED his rosary beads since being baptized...
I hope some Republican gives him the opportunity to try it.
