Biden Gaffe: Tells Cripple to 'Stand Up'

By Jim Meyers   |   Tuesday, 09 Sep 2008 05:34 PM

Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden made an embarrassing remark during a campaign appearance in Columbia, Mo., on Tuesday.

Standing before a large gathering, Biden tried to give special recognition to State Senator Chuck Graham by shouting out to him: “Chuck, stand up, let the people see you.”

It was only then that Biden realized Graham is confined to a wheelchair. But he recovered quickly and told the crowd to “stand up for Chuck.” The crowd responded with a rousing cheer for Graham.
