Barry, you bastard. You had to wait until Saturday fucking morning to drop the news about Joe Biden being your VP pick. Couldn't do it while I was paying attention, giving a shit. I wake up with a headache, trying to down coffee and feed kids, and only when I'm putting them in the bath do I remember being on pins and fucking needles yesterday wondering who it was going to be. So I turn on the news and there it is. I missed being among the first to hear. Thanks a fucking lot, jerky!Okay, I'm really not that pissed. But it felt good. Maybe McCain will give me a similar insignificant reason to go off on him.
But let's look at the Biden pick. First of all, it falls in the safe choice category. By that, I mean that, despite all the talk of change, people don't want too much change (young, black president, old white VP). For clarification, this is not a racist comment, but merely an observation of human nature in all its prejudices. Beyond that, it's going to be a matter of what kind of balance Biden can bring to the ticket. As I wasn't watching this that intently and will be reading up on ol' Joe in the meantime, I'll let everybody else decide if he was a good pick or a bad pick.
