So...many of you are just waking up to Obama's choice of Joe Biden. Some of us who are insomniacs were up when the announcement went out (no, I didn't get the text but was alerted within seconds after it happened, thank you Lyric) are now waking up with the hangover.
It will be interesting to see all the reaction today. Fascinating that Obama partners himself with a guy who voted for the war before he voted against it (and Obama slams McCain for his pro-war votes) but can't manage to share the ticket with anyone but a pro-abortion candidate. I guess you can compromise on the war but not on killing babies. These guys do have standards.
I love one pundit's description of Biden as "a guy with no off-button." If you've observed politics for very long you're familiar with Sen. Shoot-from-the-Lip, and while this may look like a smart pick right now, it's only a matter of time until Biden sticks his foot (or his whole leg) in his mouth. Just watch. He could be the first vice-presidential nominee to ever be fired from the ticket. (Don't think so? Remember his condescending comment about finally having a black man running for president who's "articulate and clean"? Yeah. That's what I mean.)
Oh, and I'm trying to avoid commenting on the possibility of having a VP named Robinette. I'd stick with the initials. But that's just me.
