Senator Biden: indecisive voters just fighting off their latent racism.

No, it’s not a direct quote. If it was a direct quote, it would have been five paragraphs long. OK, OK mean of me. He’s gotten much better; now it only takes Biden two paragraphs to get to the point.

Biden: Voters “having a difficult time” electing first African American president

As Election Day looms just over two weeks away, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said Saturday that with Republicans firing “vicious” and “dangerous” attacks at Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., voters are “having a difficult time” opting for the man who would become the nation’s first African American president.

“Undecided people are having a difficult time just culturally making the change, making the move for the first African American president in the history of the United States of America,” the Democratic vice-presidential nominee said at a San Francisco fundraiser Saturday evening. “So we need to respond. We need to respond at the moment, immediately, not wait, not hang around, not assume any of this won’t stick.”

H/T Ace, who notes two things. First off, Biden’s referring to about 10% of the population there. Actually, he’s really referring to at least 55% of the population, once you factor in all those Republicans who aren’t voting for Obama, either (although I suppose that we’re all regretfully damned already, poor us).
