Biden Our Time
I've always liked Biden, in spite of his distressing propensity to stick foot in mouth (the "Oops, Did I Say That Out Loud? Syndrome): he's smart, he's savvy, he's got loads of all the kinds of experience Obie doesn't have (ODISTOL???). Plus, even after all these years he never works on the anniversary of the 1972 death of his wife and daughter in a horrific accident with a tractor-trailer---a sensibility I can totally empathize with, as I do something just like it myself.
And he doesn't bring the baggage (at least not as much baggage) that Hillary would bring (especially the 6'1 piece of baggage albatrossity hanging around her neck).
I don't get these alleged Democrats (read "Repuglican trolls") who are now bellowing how they will vote McCain. How the hell do they figure McCain will be better:? He's still a lying, flipflopping, elitist pigdog WHO CALLED HIS WIFE A CUNT IN PUBLIC and who can't remember how many houses he owns. He has lied consistently and spectacularly about his voting record and his support for Chimpy-in-Chief. His term would be a mere extension of the Chimp's policies, and probably worse, since he wants to keep us in Iraq for the next 100 years and get us into Iran as well.
I hope Biden goes after him with all the fury of, well, a Fury. Obama has been notoriously soft on attack. I want to see McCain nailed to the wall.
But I fear, deep down in my shivering soul, that once more the Democrats will manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Pray it isn't so.
