Joe Biden's lack of charity (updated)

According to this AP report, Senator Biden gave only $1,025.00 out of his $298,000 in earned income last year. That's 1/3 of one percent of his income. Before he became a millionaire via his book royalties, Senator and Mrs. Obama were also remarkably uncharitable in their giving. And of course the major charity favored by the Obamas was Rev. Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ.

They do, however, want to take more of your income to give to recipients around the world they deem worthy of your money.

Hat tip: Jack Kemp (not the politician)

Update -- Rosslyn Smith writes:

Andrew Breitbart notes how that lack of charity looks when one also has a half brother is living in a hut on $1 a month while noting that the US media is ignoring the story.

If for some inexplicable reason the media are forced by their online and talk radio betters to run with this outrageous and creepy story, key Obama supporter Oprah Winfrey can come to the rescue at the Democratic National Convention. On Night 3, the billionaire television hostess can synthesize her two best show archetypes: the heart-wrenching family reunion and "Oprah's Favorite Things," the giveaway of material goods.

Imagine the emotional fireworks when 75,000 Obama supporters at Invesco Field witness Barack Obama reconnecting with his destitute half brother as is he lavished with Kai Body Butter & Buffer, Perfect Endings Cupcakes by Williams-Sonoma, Hand-Blown Crystal Champagne Glasses by Deborah Ehrlich and a Pure Simplicity Pumpkin Purifying Mask.

Controversy averted. Because Democrats care more
