It's Biden

Well that text message thing was pretty stupid. I never got one! I had to get the news with all the non-fanboys via CNN last night, with confirmation this morning.

... But it's not about me. Today's Joe's day, and it could be a lot worse.

How about this "analysis" by the AP's Ron Fournier? It's so evenhanded and dispassionate, you could never tell in a million years that the guy was actually considered for a job at the McCain campaign.

Actually even though Fournier is a sniveling party hack whom no self-respecting news organization would let pose as a journalist, he's right that the Biden selection is a tacit admission by Obama that foreign policy is his weak spot.

I don't really have that big a problem with it. Obama really is new to the U.S. Senate and the Illinois state senate doesn't handle foreign policy. Just as long as people recognize that the opposition to the Iraq War was the right call, and supporting it was a huge mistake.

Ah, now official party hack Ron Christie is reading from Fournier's column. "He's undercutting his message of change, etc. etc."
