Time for Another Episode of ‘How it Would Have Been Reported if the Political Affiliations Were Reversed’

Here’s how this story would have been reported in the mainstream press if a white Republican said it about a black Democrat: VP says victorious white candidate did country a favor by getting black man out of Congress:

Vice President Joe Biden apparently isn’t the biggest fan of now-former Rep. Allen West.

During a rooftop party for West’s competition — newly sworn-in Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.) — the VP expressed his delight about the outcome of the 18th Congressional District race.

“I’d like to say to all of you, you did the country a favor,” Biden told the party crowd on Thursday, according to TCPalm.

Biden wouldn’t at least admit West was clean and articulate?

There was also this aside:

Biden also joked about West’s claim that there are 80 communists in the House of Representatives — meaning the Democrats in the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Biden was right to joke about West’s comment on the number of communists in the House, because it’s ridiculous — only 80?
