Nearly as Indian as Elizabeth Warren

Vice President Joe Biden, speaking in Mumbai (which Biden has learned is Hindi for that doctor in “Bewitched”), went off script, much to the delight of anybody who writes political comedy, and told the audience of a letter he once received from a man suggesting that he may have ancestors from India.

Further evincing his pride in his multicultural heritage, the Vice President declared he had it on good authority that he’s also a direct descendant of a Nigerian prince.


  1. Hahaha thanks for the good morning laugh, Sketchy! :)

  2. Oh man, Biden let me down!

    "Biden added that after his trip that he would have 'bragging rights' when he returned home to the 'tight Indian-American community' in Delaware..."


    Man, Biden was THIS CLOSE ("-") to letting out a "one-for-the-history-books/one-for-the-ages" gaffe there, and I'm stunned his usually dependable hind-brain didn't force him to go for it.

    Ah well, I shouldn't give the man a hard time - after all, he's already given us SO MANY...
