Well, get used to saying President McCain.

Obama is a dimwit! Picking Biden basically hands the election to McCain. Why?

1. It makes it clear to the American people that his opponent is right, Obama is a phony who doesn't believe his own rhetoric of change (as if Obama's nearly all white male advisory panel doesn't do that already).

2. It's a slap in the face to Clinton supporters and women voters, who hoped at least for a female VP if not Clinton as VP. Now, that would've been change. It also would've staunched the flow of Clintonistas and other moderate women voters to the McCain camp.

3. It's a slap in the face to African-Americans and other racial/ethnic minorities, who may be just a tad bit upset about Biden's propensity for spouting racist remarks, such as...

a. The whole "clean" comment about Obama.
b. Biden's attempt to appeal to Southerners with slavery. Asked how he could appeal to them considering he was a "Northeastern Liberal," Biden said: "Better than everybody else. You don't know my state. My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state is the eighth largest black population in the country. My state is anything from a northeast liberal state," And he said this TWICE! once on national TV, once at a campaign stop.
c. Biden's claim that "You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. Oh, I'm not joking."

4. Biden's not-so-clean ethics record, including plagiarism during the 88 campaign, links to his son's lobbying group, and recordings of political operatives later convicted of bribery discussing a meeting with Biden's brother that had been bought and paid for.

5. McCain now has ammunition aplenty to attack Obama's inexperience in Biden's own words (and those of almost every major Democratic leader). He also has lots of video of Biden (and almost every major Democratic leader) praising McCain.

Ain't she cute?

Strangely, Manga Angela is a better likeness than Manga Melinda.

Meet Melinda:

It's as close as I could get it. So sue me if I took a little poetic license.

Delta Sucks!

So, I get a call at 6:30 this morning. My flight has been cancelled and I've been put on the next available flight at 5 this evening. Grrrrrrrrrrr........... Now, I get to reschedule all my arrangements for today! And spend 5 less hours with my nephew this evening. He's going to be soooooooooooo mad!

I'll still be there though, even if I have to grab hold of a wing!

Apparently, there will be a real wedding after all. Congrats to CK and Silverfox. I'm very happy that giving you my wedding present won't make me a bad Jew.

Of course, I had an awesome and perfectly free (cheap! cough!) lesbian wedding certificate all made up just in case. Maybe next time... I mean... No, maybe next time some OTHER lesbos get commitment ceremonied. OH. Shut up!

More Anagrams

Was that really necessary?

I have a problem. A serious one. Apparently, I'm not able to interview hot lesbians without flirting. Ever! We all know I accidentally hit on Bitch in 2004. This past Friday night, I was covering a comedy event when I told the gorgeous Mimi Gonzalez AKA the Stealth Butch that "with all due respect" I'd go femme for a half hour or so." "Why?" asked her fellow comic. What do I say? Ahem... "El culo cubano, por supuesto." I'm a horrible, horrible person. I really think I should stop having anything to do with hot celesbians. For real, though.
