Putting the Biden Pick in Perspective

  1. When Joe Biden entered the United States Senate, John McCain was in his fifth year of captivity at the Hanoi Hilton.

  2. Barry Obama was eight when Biden began his Senate career.

  3. Nixon was starting his second term as President.

Barack Obama’s campaign says Joe Biden is “not of Washington.” Linda Douglass, formerly of ABC News and now an Obama hack (not that it’d be different were she still at ABC) told Wolf Blitzer, “you know, the thing is, he is not of washington. he is, as you well know, wolf, he doesn’t own a home in washington. he goes home every single night to his family in delaware.”

What spin. The man went to Washington while McCain was still being tortured and yet McCain is somehow more of Washington that Biden? Give me a freakin’ break.
