Biden

link
OK. I'm going to try to mention this without getting sucked into campaign ephemera.
"There's a gigantic - gigantic - difference between John McCain and Barack Obama, and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent. And that is that - "
The crowd laughed.
"Well there's obvious differences," Biden said, beginning to ham it up. "She's good looking," he said, laughing.
Does this remind you of Senator Biden's remarks to the Observer in January of last year?
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
Apparently, Joe Biden is a lookist.

well, you did it again. Thanks for spurring me on to look up the meaning of a previously unheard-of word (by me).

There's also obvious differences among Biden, Palin, and Rosa Clemente. In terms of experience and readiness for the job, I could day she truly is scraping the bottom of the barrel, but that would be untrue. She's nowhere near the barrel; I think she's wearing one of her own.

Aren't you happy I am "still" not, not, reading your blog?

Yes, thanks for reading the blog. And thanks for pointing out that Rosa Clemente was the only reasaonable choice for Vice President in this election cycle.
