Footloose and fancy free:
“There’s a gigantic difference between John McCain and Barack Obama and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent,” Biden said.
“She’s good-looking,” he quipped
Oh, I think Barry's pretty good looking, too. Doesn't everybody?
Anyhow, Joe, suppose we take you at your word, and that is the key difference. Why should we vote for you, then? And a funny thing. The Democratic platform agrees with Joe:
A great nation now demands that its leaders abandon the politics of partisan division
So, seriously, if you believe that, why not vote R? According to the Ds, it's a perfectly acceptable choice. See, what you really don't want to do is vote for trailer trash (and yes, I know that meme is only subtly sketched by Joe; check Shakes for the hard stuff).
But wait, you say. Joe Biden was joking.
People, this is not going to get better. You know, I was actually moving a bit more toward Obama and away from the Greens, because of the NOLA legislation that Obama actually got passed (Policy! Yay!).
But right now, based on the OFB's behavior and what I saw on the teebee last night at the Republican convention, the key difference between the Rs and the Ds is that the Rs are repressive, old, tired, and weak, while the Ds are repressive, younger, feral, and willing and able to experience new ways of doing harm. Especially to women and the poor (see, again, Anglachel).
Notice, also, how extremely effective Obama's reproof on going after 17-year-olds was. Everybody knows the score, now. He wants that done, because he doesn't really do anything to stop it, like hold anyone accountable. Same as the primaries. Beyond disgusting.
