The right wing bloggers stayed up late last night, way past their bedtimes, to hear the news. The sane Americans got the news this morning. Obama has chosen Joe Biden as his Vice-Presidential running mate. It's a perfect match. Obama's ability to motivate and lead, Biden's gravitas and experience, and they're both extremely smart.
What a welcomed change it will be to have a team in the White House that has the intelligence to deal with issues in a thoughtful and careful approach.
Can't wait for the VP debates. Biden will walk all over the Republican candidate, and Obama is now free to spend his days talking to Americans about the issues, instead of addressing the distractions John McBush throws Obama's way every day -- distractions designed to hide the fact that John McBush is offering nothing more than 4 years of the same failed policies, the same slow-thinking wrong-headed approaches to diplomacy, the same failed economic policy that favors rich Americans of American families, the same slavish approach to energy that favors oil companies over everyday Americans.
It's Obama-Biden '08. On to victory in November.
Whoo-Yah! Hit 'em hard Joe, hit 'em hard!
Update: I still think Joe Libermann has a great shot at standing at the side of John McSame on the dais of the Republican National Convention in September. Joe has proven an invaluable and necessary aid to John McSame in the past...
Joe can aid John in keeping track of important matters like how to use the internet, and keeping count of how many houses he owns.
It'll be an interesting race.
Update II: In an effort to "one up" the Obama campaign's use of wireless phone text messaging to put out the word on their choice of Joe Biden as VP, the John McCain organization is planning their own messaging announcement meant to exemplify John McCain's grasp of modern technology --- but a worldwide shortage of papyrus is proving to be a hindrance.
Stone tablet carvers are being sought as an alternative. If you know of anyone experienced in stone-age technology be sure to have them send their resume to the McCain folks... uhm, no emails please.
