From Taegan Goddard:
Remember during the presidential primaries when Joe Biden described Barack Obama as "articulate and bright and clean?"

According to [Richard Wolfe's] Renegade: The Making of a President, President Bush didn't understand the resulting controversy.

"Bush was so taken aback with the public criticism of Biden that he called in his African American secretary of state Condoleezza Rice. 'I don't get it,' he said. 'Condi, what's going on?' Rice told him what everyone else had said: that white people don't call each other articulate."
The irony totally lost on Mr. Bush, of course.
