I'd have loved to have been surprised by one of the "Jaded, seen it all, SO over it" sites NOT posting the "Biden is SUCH a terrible choice" essays that practically FLEW up as soon as the choice was announced.
But NO, up they went, as predictable as a face-lift on an over-forty sex-kitten.
Every. Single. One.
Not a single one of those Oh-So-Above-It-All Sites bothered to put a moment's thought into the POSSIBILITY of this being a decent choice before posting their "WHAT a Predictable Centrist Sell-Out But What Else Do You Expect From Obama The Corporate Establisment Dream Candidate" Posts.
At once disappointing, annoying, predictable and boring themselves -- and mildly nauseating.
Luckily, we didn't, but I certainly carry a fairly non-impressed opinion of Biden. So instead of charbroiled, I'm singed. But I still love MSOC, and am glad she's posting again regularly.
Biden obviously has a lot of positives, otherwise Obama wouldn't have chosen him. The one thing that truly gets me hopeful is the idea that Biden would be an attack dog - and one that has intimate Senatorial knowledge of how to fuck with John McCain.
