Biden – Stand up Chuck!
Stand up, Chuck, let ’em see ya.” –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008
At a campaign event Joe Biden calls on a Missouri state senator to stand up and be recognized. And then the Democratic vice-presidential candidate realizes that local pol Chuck Graham is wheelchair-bound. Worse, Obama’s running mate compounds the embarrassment by urging the crowd to stand up instead: “Stand up for Chuck!”
