Obama-Biden get tough

I don’t know that I buy the argument from Citadel Obama that the VP choice was made a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I think Obama’s Praetorian guard knows how poorly their Saviour performed at the Saddleback Church event on all things religious held on August 16, when the Illinois senator could not answer the question that any step rep candidate would know to be prepared for; namely, when does life begin. Obama’s shocking response what that the answer was above his pay grade (by the way, senators make $154,700 a year with sweet benes).

As Republican Peggy Noonan just wrote in the Wall Street Journal, "Everyone who ever bought a pack of condoms knows when life begins."

So suddenly, the Obama campaign knew that just as voters were re configuring their radar from scanning the sand dunes to, instead, surveying the political turf, Obama blew it big time and I think the Great One's handlers decided a heavy weight, seasoned, bare knuckled partisan had to be the Democratic vp choice - and that’s exactly who Deleware Senator and former presidential aspirant Joe Biden is. He’s brash, he’s blunt, he’s smart, even though he’s more often wrong than right, and in politics he doesn’t take prisoners …he eats them.

This choice signals a big switch for the guy who was going to bring us a gentler and kinder campaign. Look for the Obama Biden ticket to start hurling nuclear tipped missles at the GOP starting with Monday evening's spin fest in Minneapolis.

If you thought the Primary season was harsh; you ain't seen nothing yet.
