Biden?

Well, that's pretty much the last nail in the coffin of that whole change thing. I can't imagine a more perfectly cynical choice. I'm not particularly opposed to Biden as a politician, though he does have a gift for putting his foot in his mouth. It's just that he is such a Washington animal, and he hasn't shown himself to be any less craven than the rest of the mainstream Democrats. (Yes, he voted for the Iraq war, in case you're wondering.) It seems the Obama camp is taking a page out of the Bush-Cheney playbook, and compensating for Obama's inexperience with a wily codger who has been a round long enough to be thoroughly compromised. Great. I swear I'd almost rather they'd picked Hillary. I'm convinced she'd be worth more votes than Biden, and they could always sequester Bill in a nice brothel somewhere.

I feel your frustration.

Ironically, MissyMassy Mammy DuBois [ aka me]- who never lambastes others with her politics chez Meister [ unlike the REST of my household !]- predicted, early on, before it was even suggested-
That Joe Biden would be asked !

I'm having a rare crowing moment here, because I was right on the money.

That doesn't improve the situation at all, at all...

Well, you definitely win the pundit prize, because I never thought he'd get the nod. To be honest, I'm trying not to think about it too much, period.

That's me, too -- trying not to think about it -- 'cause I can't stand to be so disgusted.
