The New York Times Won’t Say It, But…

…Joe Biden will. We noted here the outrageous Obama ad that ridiculed John McCain because, as a result of injuries he suffered as a prisoner of war, he is unable to type well on a keyboard. Obama has never apologized for this grotesque attack, but today Joe Biden did:

Barack Obama’s running mate says a campaign ad that mocked Republican presidential candidate John McCain as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate was “terrible” and would not have been done had he known about it. …

“I thought that was terrible, by the way,” Biden said.

Asked why it was done, he said: “I didn’t know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we’d have never done it.”

I concluded our post on the Dems’ disgraceful ad by saying, “I guess now we’ll find out whether Barack Obama is capable of shame.” As best we can tell he isn’t, but apparently Joe Biden is. It is deeply ironic that earlier today, the New York Times tried to assert that it has critiqued the two campaigns’ ads with equal vigor. In fact, Joe Biden has assessed the Dems’ attack ads with more candor than the Times. Just one more milestone in the Times’ sad descent into oblivion.

SCOTT adds: Biden takes it back.
