William McGurn, in his WSJ column today, dredged up  some Joe Biden comments form 2007 on Iraq  – “fundamental strategic mistake” to believe “there is any possibility in the lifetime of anyone here of having the Iraqis get together, have a unity government in Baghdad that pulls the country together. That will not happen, George.”

Biden: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” (visit CNN for video)

Reid:    …a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” (click here for Atlantic story)

I guess if Obama doesn’t think it’s a big deal that Biden and Reid speak in this strange dialect I don’t either.
