When your running mate has deemed you

the pro-woman candidate in hopes to win over his former opponent's supporters, do not then make a joke about your wife:

Ladies and gentlemen, my wife Jill, who you'll meet soon, is drop dead gorgeous. My wife Jill, who you'll meet soon, she also has her doctorate degree, which is a problem. But all kidding aside . . .

It is heartwarming to discover what Joe Biden values in his woman. Attractiveness, yes. Higher education, no. Keep that patriarchy alive and kicking, Joe.

I think this will play out slightly better than the time Senator Biden called a certain Senator from Illinois "clean" and "articulate".

It will be a competition between him and McCain to see who can say the most stupid shit until November. By the end of this we may all be longing for Bushes idiocy.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

This election is getting less and less "so bad it's funny" and just becoming "so bad I could cry."

Any chance in hell I'm dreaming?

Oy. What an ass. A friend and I were discussing last night just how much the sheen has worn off Obama and how much we wish Hillary had gotten the nomination.
