Biden is a fantastic pick for VP - just check out his first remarks as the presumptive democratic vice presidential nominee (that's a mouthful):

"Ladies and gentlemen, your kitchen table is like mine. You sit there at night before you put the kids, after you put the kids to bed and you talk, you talk about what you need. You talk about how much you're worried about being able to pay the bills. Well, ladies and gentlemen, that's not a worry John McCain has to worry about. It's a pretty hard experience. He'll have to figure out which of the seven kitchen tables to sit at" (transcript courtesy NPR)

BEAUTIFUL. This whole not knowing how many houses he owns issue is going to be hard hard hard for John McCain. His campaigns insinuation that his POW-status somehow negates not knowing how many houses he owns is going to be even harder. And please John, please pick Romney as your running mate. Please, I'm begging you. Please add another white rich guy to your ticket. (Romney's net worth is estimated between $250m -$500m, and he has three houses.)

The best slogan I've seen that encapsulates what should be huge problems for McCain:

Obama/Biden - one house, one spouse. HAHAHAHAHAHA. I love it.

(which is not to say that i would not have loved to have kathleen sebelius, governor of kansas as the veep pick, but her time is coming, so i'm not worried)

Meanwhile, you may have seen some recent polling that has McCain and Obama in a statistical heat. You need to remember that it is not nationwide polling that is important, it's state polling. According to, the preeminent statewide polling aggregator, Obama still wins the election 285 - 253. That does not include winning Nevada and Virginia, which I think the dems can pull off. uh, and missouri, of course - don't think that Claire won't be working her ass off to deliver the Show me state.

I should point out that fivethirtyeight also puts our Sentate pickups at 55 seats, with 70% confidence. Fuck you Joe! Hopefully, by God's grace, they will strip him and turn him out after the election, we don't need fake dems in Obama's party.

Meanwhile the Dem convention is this week, so I'll be watching as much of it as possible. I am specifically interested in Michelle Obama, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, and of course Barack's speech. They all should bring the house down... Kindof like obama did four years ago. And i'll admit it. I poo pooed the idea that Obama could be "the only silver lining." I was dead wrong.

And i think that all the pundits will be wrong about this election. i don't think Obama will beat McCain in November.....I think Obama will SMASH him. we're talking electoral landslide. you watch. you heard it here.

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!
