Was Joe Biden’s nomination for Vice President – a pick elicited first by the criticisms of Hillary Clinton, then John McCain, for Barack Obama’s relative foreign policy inexperience – a shallow attempt to dispel the disparaging ‘naiveté’ narrative? Will Vice President Cheney, a man who has expanded the powers of the Office of the Vice President more than any VP in recent memory, be succeeded | Read More »
Bad Doug. No Diplomatic Bone.
In a November 23, blog entry for the Jesuit’s America Magazine, Michael Sean Winters argued that law professor Douglas Kmiec would be the “perfect person” to represent the Obama Administration as the U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican.
So. Gates for SecDef, Clinton for SecState, Jones for NSA.
That’s pretty much the lineup.Do you know what this means?It means that Joe Biden is going to be the single most useless Vice President in the history of the Vice Presidency – which is impressive, considering the people that we’ve had populating that office. He’s going to go from being Senate Foreign Relations Chair to The Guy Waiting To See If Obama Keels Over. Because | Read More »

How Many Offices can ONE Person Run for in an Election, Joe?
So today, Delaware voters get to vote for Joe-the-six-term-Senator twice. How is this possible? How is his Senate seat filled should Obama win? How can he pick which position he wants? Why should the Dems get a free Senate seat? In the same way, I urge all Alaskans to vote for Stevens just so Gov. Palin can appoint a Republican replacement after the election. Again, | Read More »

The latest meme from the in-the-tank-for-Obama MSM is that Gov. Sarah Palin, as the GOP vice presidential nominee, is a “drag” on her party’s ticket. They even have numbers from their own polls to back it up, thanks to a generous oversampling of Democrats to fudge the results.
