It's official! It's Bobo Obo and Jo-Bo!
The 3am phone call confirmed that The One had chosen his number two - the poster boy for hair transplants and Senator from somewhere.
The choice of Biden wasn't so much a pick as it was the only alternative to Hillary. There was literally no other acceptable candidate, and I use the term "acceptable" loosely, though probably not as loosely as Hillary's supporters will.
But Joe Biden, or Joey Plugs as he's known on the mean streets of Delaware, is a dream choice – for Republicans. Not only is his head preposterous, what comes out of it is often more so, such as when he pronounced Obama to be clean and articulate, or when he said that the Presidency is no place for on the job training… or when he snapped at some reporter that "I think I have a much higher IQ than you do."
Then there was his comment about all the Seven-Elevens being Indian territory:
"You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking." – thus (hopefully) alienating two groups with one arrow…
And who can forget when Biden had to drop out of the Presidential race when he was discovered to have plagiarized not only an English politician, but the guy's actual life?
Then there's this from… let's see… oh yeah, yesterday:
"My friends, I don't have to tell you, this election year the choice is clear. One man stands ready to deliver change we desperately need. A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next president of the United States, Barack America," Biden said
The McCain camp needs an ad showing the bald Biden and the new, semi-haired, Biden with the caption:
Obama-Biden: Change You Can Believe In
And for Bobo himself, The Rottenest Man Who Ever Ran, the selection of Biden certainly represents change – everything old is new again!
