An update on the 2008 players.

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

You probably noticed my bit yesterday on Senator Biden.  Well, his remark about Obama is still in the news, Biden Unwraps His Bid for ’08 With an Oops!  I point this story out because it involves another contender for the 2008 title, Al Sharpton, quoted thus:

Rev. Sharpton said that when Mr. Biden called him to apologize, Mr. Sharpton started off the conversation reassuring Mr. Biden about his hygienic practices. “I told him I take a bath every day,” Mr. Sharpton said.

Now, Sharpton’s two real claims to fame are a hoax racial incident, and a failed run for the Presidency.  His Presidential dreams slipped away in the primary debates when his answer to a question about the Federal Reserve made it apparent he had no clue as to the function of that organization.  It remains to be seen if he wants to be slapped down again.
