Biden gets called out on “chains” comment by… Charlie Rangel?

Yep. Charlie Rangel.

“The Vice President said, ‘And he’s gonna put y’all in chains.’ Was he talking about slavery? You bet your ass he was. Was he using a vernacular? Yes he was. Did he think it was cute because there were [unintelligible]? Yes he did. Was it something stupid to say? You bet your life it was stupid.”

Rangel then goes on to talk about the negative tone of the campaign. Which, according to him, is unfortunate but necessary. Besides, how is the Obama campaign supposed to find something good to say about a tax-dodging, cancer-causing felon who takes candy from babies to feed to his wife’s dumb horse? (Oh, and did you hear he’s a Mormon?)

In other campaign news, a huge, mindlessly destructive gale of hot wind is expected to hit Tampa next week. But enough about Joe Biden.
