12:45 p.m. Central, and a report is out there saying St. Barack has picked. . .
Splendid, splendid ! I hope it's true. This has to be a second choice -- he would never, never have announced Biden on a Friday night two days before the convention, one day before the Olympics closing if this was the first choice.
I'm betting Choice 1 was Hillary, and negotiations collapsed. That's why the lack of a vetting process became an issue only today. Hillary knew for weeks there was no serious vetting -- so far as we knew -- going on. . .because she and the Ersatz Messiah were talking. Things must have collapsed this week.
Biden. . .the blowhard whiner, beloved of the chattering classes, who shoots from the hip. Boring old Biden, who has been in Washington forever and ever, since Julius Caesar was the senior Senator from Rome. Hamlet with a teleprompter. It's not Kaine or Webb or anybody who could hurt us with voters in a state McCain's got to have. The Sainted One's publicly kicked the Hillaites in the teeth. . . or it looks enough like it. Perfect!
