I thought only Joe Biden made gaffes like this

After making a fool of himself yesterday in refusing to seat Roland Burris (and knowing he needed something to save face today) Harry Reid met with Burris. He had a Biden-esque, gaffe-tastic moment: (HT to Ann Althouse and Glenn Reynolds)

Both Reid and Durbin stressed during their press conference that Burris had played down the race issue. Burris would be the only African-American in the Senate, and when his appointment was announced Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush suggested that senators would not want to oppose him for that reason.

"A lot of people tried to make this a racial issue, but Roland Burris has not, and will not," Reid said.

"He obviously is a very engaging, extremely nice man. He presents himself well," added Reid, who met with Burris for the first time this morning.
Contrast that with what Joe Biden said of Barack Obama:

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."

::Chuckle:: There's no need for another Biden in the Senate. The gaffe legacy is preserved in Harry Reid. "God love ya, Harry!"
