Ann's "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding" reviews Jane Fonda's new film Peace, Love & Misunderstanding -- as did my "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding" and we both say see the movie. Joyce read both of our posts and e-mailed us to say that right now you can also rent the film for streaming on Amazon for $6.99. Why so much for a rental? Because it's still in the movie theaters. And that's not, "Pay now and we'll let you stream it when it's out on DVD." That's you can stream it as soon as you pay.
Now for my beef tonight. I like Joe Biden.
When he made the 'clean, articulate' remarks about Barack and some people called Joe a racist, I didn't think so. I thought he was talking about the new image Barack carried. But a whole lot of people rushed to call Joe a racist back then. In fact, they continued to and continued to bring it up -- like FAIR did -- throughout 2008 until Barack made Joe his running mate.
So it distresses me when Joe turns around and does something to imply someone else is a racist.
The "Los Angeles Times" has the article about Joe trying to walk back his assertion yesterday that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan want to put you in chains.
It's embarrassing. If you're going to lie, be funny. Make it into, "Oh, I was talking bondage and sex play." Instead he's trying to draw a link between "chained" and a speech from months ago about "unshakle" the economy or some such nonsense. (Read the "LAT" article.)
Why do I call it nonsense?
The same reason I say Joe did what he did to call the other side racists.
Since Saturday I have received 67 e-mails from various groups -- uncoordinated of course (lie) -- and individuals asking me to vote for Barack and explaining how 'racist' Romney and Ryan are.
I'm sick of this b.s.
If you can't win by highlighting your opponent's record, you don't deserve to win.
Cut the crap.
I'm not in the mood for this.
Joe Biden knows what it's like to be called a racist when he's not. His statements about Barack were not meant as an insult. I fully accept that and I say with 100% conviction: Joe Biden doesn't have a racist bone in his body.
So it really bothers me that he's going to participate in suggesting someone else is racist.
Joe Biden's better than that.
