Why, Yes.... Yes, He would.

Dean here. I asked and He provided. The Good Lord has granted this wish as Suit has chosen Joe Biden (D-small, insignificant East Coast state no one’s heard of) that will be certain to stir the masses and awake the echoes.

From some exhaustive research I did, Biden is supposedly veeeery strong in foreign policy matters. We’ll take this as an admission that perhaps Suit acknowledges that indeed, his inexperience in foreign policy is an issue… if by “inexperience” one also means “utter cluelessness”. Good luck, Senator from tacked-onto-the-ass-end-of-Maryland, you’ve got your work cut-out for ya.

And for all you Veep hopefuls: Better luck next time, suckers. Especially you, Tim Kaine of Virginia. Your performance during the initial stages of the Georgia/Russian crisis was one for the ages. Stating how pleased you were that the two sides “complied” with his Suit’s edict for a cease-fire while Russian armor continued to roll into Gori was breathtaking. But now its time to get up, brush off your knees and get back to the business of governing the great state of Virginia.

Update #1:If Hillary’s supporters are looking for any more fuel to fan the Flames of Denver, then the vetting process, if not necessarily the selection of Biden, will fill the bill.

The “process” is one big bone-throwing hootenanny… something that governors, senators, and one would think, the person that finished second in pledged delegates during the primaries can tell their grand-children about… “Yes, Suit had me vetted as a potential Vice Presidential candidate but… well, damn… ask your Grandpa Billy why it is I didn’t make the ticket.”

Thing is – Hil’ was never vetted - not even asked to be vetted, which as far as we know is a requirement for anyone even being remotely considered for the job.
A top Clinton advisor also told CNN they were "outraged," over how the process was conducted.

"You can't put [Obama VP vetters] Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy on an hour plane ride to Chappaqua just to check the box? They should have done it just for the optics," this person said. "Barack never even said to her, 'Here's how I envision the job'– not one discussion with her about [the position]."

It’s not quite clear what possessed Camp Obama to not even make this most ceremonial and party unification-obligatory of gestures. And the claim by Camp Obama that the Clintons have lived the most public of lives and thus, have been vetted in a manner of speaking by the public already is the ultimate in stained blue dress irony.

Seriously. What is Suit thinking? Oh yeah, Audacity, Arrogance, Inexperience... its all there, folks... dig in.

H/T: Hot Air

Update #2: : Obama feels compelled to mention at least twice Biden’s Catholic faith in his introduction of little Joey B. And here’s little Joey B. on, one presumes, McCain and then… I have no earthly clue: “These times require more than a good soldier. They require a wise leader. A leader -- a leader who can deliver."

As the "attack dogs" of the Right Wing Conspirosy bring forth allegations of plagerism and such things, the truth will not matter. They will be likened to the Swiftboaters of yore and dismissed as easily as a National Enquirer gossip column. Mark my words

'Dawg, I think the plagerism thing is dead as a specific issue as opposed to a latent issue, as in... what have you been up to... since that whole plagerism thing?

Dude finished behind both Silky and Richardson in the primaries, though, the awesomeness of Richardson's beard would account for a fourth place finish in its own right.

Extremely safe pick to balance- out all that freaking audaciousness.

Thanks for the save on the blog today. I heard from a very long time Obama supporter that picking Kaine of Virginia would have been a disaster, presumably because it would have so infuriated the base. I invited that supporter to comment on the blog, so we'll see what he has to say.

It really comes across as a defensive pick to me. I can't see how it helps anything save for Barack's wounded ego.

Dig this particularly the last two paragraphs.
