Flashback to 2006: Biden said about Delaware, "My state was a slave state"

Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee for governor in Florida, is being attacked by the left and their allies in the media about a comment he made  about his liberal Democrat opponent, Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gilliam, whose political stances include abolishing ICE and "Medicare for all," which is a euphemism for socialized  medicine.

Today DeSantis said that Florida voters shouldn't "monkey this up." Because Gillum is an African American libs are claiming that his remark is racist.

"Free" healthcare is expensive. Florida has a modest sales tax rate and no state income tax. Unlike high tax states such as Illinois, California, and New York, people are flocking there. How does Gilllum propose paying for "Medicare for all?"

Why do Florida voters want to screw this up?

Where was the outrage a dozen years ago when Joe Biden bragged that his state, Delaware, was a slave state?

"You don’t know my state," Biden told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace when he was exploring his second presidential bid. "My state was a slave state … my state has the eighth largest black population in the country."

What kind of person boasts about a state's disgraceful heritage of slavery? Well, Biden is that type.

As for DeSantis' "monkey" comment.  Inartful? Yes. But I recall the dozens of times Little Marathon Pundit, when she was a toddler, watching the kids of Barney and Friends sing "Five Little Monkeys." You know the tune, "Five little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head."

Have you heard the song, "Too Much Monkey Business?" Chuck Berry wrote and sang it.

"Monkeying around" has been an expression meaning goofing off for decades.

As for the top of the Democratic ticket in 2008 and 2012, when trying to explain away a poor bowling performance during an appearance on the Tonight Show, Barack Obama told Jay Leno, "It's like the Special Olympics or something."

Obama quickly apologized, but the media didn't hammer him.

The Left is grasping at straws. Best to ignore them and maybe they'll go away. I'd say the MSM is a bunch of monkeys.

And what about the term "money wrench?"
