WASHINGTON, DC --- After Senator Joe Biden's comment that Barak Obama was popular because he was an African-American who was "articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy". The comment gave Democrats a novel idea on how to lift African-Americans out of poverty and despair.
"I wish I thought of this sooner," said Biden. "All we need to do is set up free make-over clinics with shower facilities, and we can solve the dilemma facing African-Americans in this country. Once they're clean and nice looking, it will solve all of their problems. If I had just thought of this sooner, imagine where the world would be today. We need to get this program started immediately."
