    Liberal Geek wants more confirmation, but all, and I mean all, signs point to Biden. CNN is going with it.

  2. can someone clothes line the chick “Gloria” from CNN? she is so fucking annoying. She tries so hard to sound balanced but the GOP talking points she delivers are very tiring.

    seriously…one of you guys still over there make it happen

  3. Benjamin says:

    Congratulations. I stand corrected but I am still confused about the Obama strategy of unveiling Biden so late in the week.

    So whats the impact on Markell/Carney ? With Beau out in Iraq, he can’t get the seat, can he ?
    And Obama/Biden pretty much ensures Bill Lee is going to lose, right ?

  4. mike w. says:

    Oh joy, as if I needed MORE of a reason not to vote for Obama.

  5. coming from the guy that said he can’t stand McCain and doesn’t think marrying into a woman worth over 100 million is eltist.

    right.

  6. delawaredem says:

    Like you needed any reason other than your gun.

  7. delawaredem says:

    The political ramifications of this pick are many.

    1. Obama wins Delaware by a margin of 60-40 at least.

    2. Lee and Copeland will both lose

    3. I am not sure of the impact on Markell v. Carney, except I can opine that if Carney is the loser, he is our next Senator. If Markell loses, he is not. Minner and Carney will be spiteful and appoint someone else.

  8. mike w. says:

    How is the simple act of marrying money “elitist?”

    I never thought Kerry was “elitist” simply because he’d married a rich woman.

  9. delawaredem says:

    You say that now.

  10. mike w. says:

    “Like you needed any reason other than your gun.”

    Coming from the guy who spoke on the “gun show loophole” as if he knew what he was talking about, when he was in fact dead wrong.

  11. delawaredem says:

    CONFIRMED. John King says Obama offered the VP spot to Biden.

  12. mike w. says:

    “You say that now.”

    WTF? I can’t exactly “prove” whether I held a certain position back in 2004, since I didnt have a blog and wasn’t commenting here back then.

    Yeah, baby. You play with fire, you get burned. :-)

    or

    Yeah, baby. That’s how we roll. :-)

    or

    Yeah, baby. In your face muthafucka :-)

  14. ditto…dang you are quick.

    You know DD. the tone of that comment #13 sounded snobby to me. I think you are elitist….

  15. caller from York Pa just brought up Plagirism 2x’s….

    hmmmmmm

  16. Benjamin says:

    Trivial ramifications of this pick are many:

    1. Expect Celia Cohen to be the new Lynn sweet

    2. Expect many more derogatory comments about our good state (“It is barely even a state”) – including a special reprint of Cohn’s infamous rant against DE in the TNR

    3. Hairplug jokes are in.

    4. Expect “Biden as a gaffe-machine” to be the narrative here, resulting in SOME comment at some point turning into a massive media frenzy, even if it was no big deal

    5. I honestly cannot think of ONE potential McCain VP Biden would not chew up in a debate. I honestly think it is going to be an old hand like Romney or Lieberman. No way they throw Pawlenty or Whitman against Biden.

  17. dpn? when do you actually become dpn?

  18. DPN (tpfka nemski) says:

    I know why we are all on this blog late at night, because we are all old motherfuckers who’s wives have been fast asleep since 8 o’clock.

    But Mike W, WTF? Get the fuck out of the house and do something. Go bowling. Shoot your guns. Socialize. Dude, grab life by the fucking horns or you’ll become an immense loser like us. Just some friendly advice.

  19. mike w. says:

    “4. Except “Biden as a gaffe-machine” to be the narrative here with the caveat that SOME comment at some point will be turned into a massive media frenzy, even if it was no big deal”

    The media does that with pretty much everyone.

  20. I will take “gaffe machine” over mormon or jew any day.

    just sayin….

  21. DPN (tpfka nemski) says:

    DV, soon very soon. Expect a text message first. :-)

    Could you guys change the headline: Obama Taps Biden sounds a bit queer, not that there’s anything wrong with that. :-)

    “But Mike W, WTF? Get the fuck out of the house and do something. Go bowling. Shoot your guns. Socialize. Dude, grab life by the fucking horns or you’ll become an immense loser like us. Just some friendly advice.”

    I have things to do in the morning, otherwise I’d be out in Newark right now.

  23. Benjamin says:

    Also, please advice your Republican friends that anytime they bring up the plagiarism thing, the closer they get to having it blown back in their face (cross in the sand, fake Mother Theresa story and so on ).

    I would think they would have learned with the elitism thing.
    But noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

  24. Mike,

    I hate to agree with DPN. He sounded a little snobby when he said that. I’d say he is an elitist that is just trying to take away your right to bear arms.

  25. mike w. says:

    DBB – What do you have against mormons & jews?

  26. What do you have against mormons & jews?

    nothing. It’s the elitist evangelicals that do dumb ass. toi be honest, I feel sorry for them. AS a catholic, they are going to hell not me.

    did that sound snobby to you mike? I hate to offend your delicate sensibilities. I know how words speak louder than actions with you.

    sorry…. was that snobby. I don’t want you to think I’m elitist

  27. I have things to do in the morning, otherwise I’d be out in Newark right now.

    rigghtttttt, yet here you are on your new computer. spare us…

  28. Benjamin says:

    I didnt want to bring up the cookbook thing becaue otherwise McCain is goign to launch a slime war of lies against me because “I am attacking his wife”.

    I wouldnt want to get McNutcase to get a heart attack over me.

  29. Von Cracker says:

    Come on, Mike. Join the home team and come in for the big win!

    Best thing about the Olympics? 1:30am and watching Nigeria v Argentina for the Gold, live and in HD. Sweet! 74min NGR 0 – 1 ARG.

  30. liberalgeek says:

    I concede. It is a done deal.

  31. Von Cracker says:

    word

  32. Von Cracker says:

    Really wanted to make it to Dead Preznits tonight. Hell, I could walk there if I wanted, but alas, I had something needed to be done at home, plus DV pays me not to show up to those events…something to do with overshadowing. ;-)

    Next time around!

  33. Ezsuds says:

    Not being from Delaware, do you know if is legal for Biden to be on the Ballot for both Senate and VP. I believe it was legal for Lieberman in CT in 2000.

  34. Andrew C. says:

    No, there’s nothing that says Biden can’t run for both at the same time, which he technically will.

  35. Andrew C. says:

    The real issue is, will TNJ have this in their print edition tomorrow morning? Did they jump the gun and go for it? Are we simply going to see “Biden is frontrunner, may be announced as VP cand. today?”

  36. Ezsuds says:

    Thanks for the quick reply!

  37. liberalgeek says:

    No prob. But in 15 minutes, I gotta hit the hay…

  38. delawaredem says:

    Andrew….the answer to that is no. Even their website is not updated. Unbelievable.
