Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Biden's rambling explanation of how he made Corn Pop stand down was making the rounds on social media as the former vice president was seeking to burnish his credentials with black voters. Biden, in a speech at the 6th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. on Sunday afternoon, told attendees that "we are in a battle for the soul of America" and that the "revulsion of hate" can "bring out the best in us." But Biden's lifeguarding tale was immediately questioned by commentators with sway in the black community. The former vice president has long claimed that he had applied to be a lifeguard at the pool to better understand black America, and said in his 2007 memoir that Corn Pop often tormented him at the pool. For example, Biden said Corn Pop would insult Biden's mother to distract him so that people could sneak into the pool.

""My car was mostly, these were all public housing behind us," Biden continued. "My car - there was a gate on here. I parked my car outside the gate. And he said, 'I'll be waiting for you. He was waiting for me with three guys with straight razors. Not a joke. There was a guy named Bill Wright the only white guy and he did all the pools. He was a mechanic. And I said, 'What am I gonna do?' And he said. 'Come down here in the basement, where all the mechanics- - where all the pool builder is.' You know the chain, there used to be a chain that went across the deep end. And he cut off a six-foot length of chain, and folded it up and he said, 'You walk out with that chain, and you walk to the car and say, 'you may cut me man, but I'm gonna wrap this chain around your head.'""

"...the only white guy and he did all the pools."

'I asked myself, 'What would Randolph Scott do?' So I took off my racoon coat and put it in my Stutz Bearcat. Then it dawned on me. I'll insult him by calling him Ester Williams! That'll learn him. He'll 23-skidoo for sure!'
