Three words on Obamassiah and Biden




I am a cynically romantic optimistic pessimist. I am neither liberal, nor conservative. I am a (somewhat disgruntled) muscular minarchist… something like a constructive anarchist.

Basically what that means, is that I believe, all things being equal, responsible adults should be able to do whatever the hell they want to do, so long as nobody’s getting hurt, who isn’t paying extra

  • Doug Mataconis


    As I said over at Below The Beltway, Obama, the guy who’s running against an old white guy who has been in the Senate for decades chose as his running mate an old white guy who’s been in the Senate for decades.

    Not exactly change you can believe in.

  • Harry Rossman

    The vice presidential nominee does not matter that much. I believe that Biden was chosen for two reasons: he will do what Obama says without question and for the WASPS.

  • Dan Melson

    >The vice presidential nominee does not matter that much

    Tell that to George McGovern. Anybody remember Thomas Eagleton, one of the major reasons McGovern’s campaign crashed and burned was standing behind him “1000 percent” only to change the nominee to Sargent Shriver about three days later.

    (Eagleton had a history of mental illness. So does Biden, and most other Congresscritters, if you look at the evidence. Eagleton taught politicians not to get help for their mental health problems)
