Joe Biden: I Hate The Spaghetti-Bending Dagos, Too!

Warning: Headline may be slightly Dowdified.

Facing criticism, potential 2008 presidential candidate Joe Biden on Friday defended his recent remark that "you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent."

The Delaware senator said his words were taken out of context.

Taken out of context? How original.

...

The senator said he has had an "incredibly strong" relationship with the Indian-American community in Delaware and that his comment was misinterpreted.

"I was making the point that up until now in my state, we've had a strong Indian community made up of leading scientists and researchers and engineers," Biden said. Lately, he said: "We're having middle- class people move to Delaware, take over Dunkin' Donuts, take over businesses, just like other immigrant groups have, and I was saying that ... they're growing, it's moving."

"I could have said that 40 years ago about walking into a delicatessen and saying an Italian accent in my state," Biden added.


He then added he was proud to see Indian-Americans advancing in the Slurpee and Slim-Jim dispensing industries, and that he really admired Indian heroes like the enforcer from Octopussy and Mola Ram from Temple of Doom.

"Soon, Kali-Mal will rule the world," the snazzy-collared blowhard Senator said. "And I'm not joking."
