Dem Convention

Having a hard time getting excited for it. Joe Biden just seemed like such an uninspired choice. Maybe I'm too hard on Obama. But he really could have done better than that.

Reading Michael Moore's new book, "Mike's Election Guide." In it he has a chapter called how to elect John McCain, a sort of blueprint for failure. Picking an insider, conservative white guy running mate was one of the ways to do it. I think Moore really meant "don't pick some guy just because he's a military vet." But Biden really is a conservative Democrat (as a Senator from Delaware he's entirely beholden to the banking industry) and he's an insider and he was wrong about Iraq, which is what Obama bludgeoned Hillary with for months.

Hopefully McCain will just hand us the election by picking Joe Lieberman as a running mate.
