Obama / Biden - For Reals

The One has chosen. No wonder he waited until 3 am to make this announcement, he wanted to limit the collective laughter. Either that or he was timing it for the Euros as it was 7am in Germany when this text went out. Auchtung, baby.

Seriously, Camp Obama plucked this roll out up and how. If they can't get a VP announcement roll out to work, how the heck is this group going to run our country? It was an announcement, Barry! Again, free advice. Next time do a press conference. Even YOU can handle this. You can have a teleprompter, too. Oh, don't let Biden write the announcement, though. There is no telling where it really came from.

Let's have a cup of coffee and analyze this. Biden. How does Biden help Barack? Enquiring minds want to know. Did everyone else say "Thank you, but no"? Or did Barack deploy the old trick "if you want to look thin, stand next to someone really fat" rule. In this case, Barry needs to look smarter, so he is standing next to someone more stupid than he.

In an interesting bit of history, Biden was all about having McCain join the Kerry ticket in 04. Wonder how that is going to be reconciled. Let's not forget where Biden stated the presidency is not the place for on the job training. The writing staff over at Team McCain had their job just get infinitely easier. Oh look! It took them about 3 seconds to prepare this gem!

For those of you wanting change, what you are left with is someone who has spent the last 36 years in the Senate. At this point I suggest you hang your hat on the hope part of this campaign - its your best bet. Off for some Dunkin' Donuts. Let me brush up on my Indian accent.
