"Articulate." Now That's Irony

Senator Biden has apparently noticed that Senator Obama is attractive because "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," he said. "I mean, that’s a storybook, man."

MORE: Now that I've thought about it, isn't it most likely that the thought behind this inartful comment was that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are neither "mainstream" or "clean." As for clean, it was most likely not meant a comment on their personal hygiene, but on their ethics.

He should have asked Neil Kinnock to describe Barak.
