In a delayed reaction report from the "Did He Really Say That?" Department, the Huffington Post has unearthed a June 17 C-SPAN clip of Joe Biden chatting with an Indian-American man about the support he's received from other Indian-Americans. "In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans, moving from Indian," Biden says. "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking!"
