At an event today in Rochester, New Hampshire, Vice President Joe Biden used an Indian accent to imitate call service employees:

This is not the first time Biden has made bizarre and inappropriate comments about Indians. In 2006, Biden came under fire for making this remark about Indian-Americans in Delaware: "I've had a great relationship.
