If there was ever any doubt that Obama was a cheap, empty suit without an original thought, this confirms it. Only by picking John Kerry could Obama have found a VP candidate equally up to the task to the role of self-important, sleep-inducing blowhard.
Joe Biden. Joe Biden!? What was he thinking? I think this is a great move -- for McCain.

People rely on government for too many things. One thing, however, that they rightly rely on government for is security against criminals.
What to do then when the criminals are the government?
That's the dilemma Russians face as their country has progressively fallen under the control of the gangster Vladimir Putin and his criminal associates.
Now these gangsters are becoming more emboldened. Georgia and the Ukraine have long been "thorns" in their side because of these countries pro-Western policies. So, when the gangsters have their own army, a great way to deal with your adversaries is to fabricate an excuse to launch an invasion.
Russia's pretext for invading Georgia was that they were protecting pro-Russian separtist groups in two Georgian provinces. Of course, that was just a sham pretext for an invasion. As you can see from this graphic, Russian attacks are now spreading into Georgian areas beyond the two provinces.
One other thing: look who's running the show for the Russians. Putin. His role in this aggression should put the lie to the notion that he ever intended to give up power even though the Russian constitution required him to step down. Hopefully, our leaders were never so naive or foolish as to ever have believed that particular lie.

Boy, this theme is ripe for picking. Uber hypocrite John Edwards has now admitted he is a lying philanderer. I doubt I'll be the first one to say this, and others will likely say it more artfully, but: I guess there really are two Americas for John Edwards. The one in which you parade your cancer-stricken wife around the country to gin up sympathy which you hope you can translate into votes. The other is where you sneak off to the left coast to fool around with another woman, leaving your cancer-stricken wife, who's served her photo op purpose for you, back home.
Of course Edwards' belatedly coming clean now is just more evidence of his phoniness and hypocrisy. It's honorable to come forward and confess if you haven't been caught. It's not quite the same when the confession comes after you've been caught in a hotel room with your mistress by a tabloid newspaper. Moreover, I can't believe that anyone in the world would be dumb enough to fall for the line that, even though your illicit affair was over, you met your mistress at a hotel in the middle of the night "just to talk".
Edwards Admits Sexual Affair; Lied as Presidential Candidate
In an ABC NEWS NIGHTLINE Interview, Edwards Reveals He Cheated, But Didn't Father Child
By RHONDA SCHWARTZ, BRIAN ROSS, and CHRIS FRANCESCANI
August 8, 2008 —
John Edwards admitted to ABC News in an interview with Bob Woodruff Friday that he repeatedly lied about an extramarital affair with a 42-year old campaign employee, but strenuously denied being involved in paying the woman hush money or fathering her newborn child. The former Democratic U.S. senator from North Carolina said he would be willing to take a paternity test and divulge the results publicly.
"Two years ago I made a very serious mistake, a mistake that I am responsible for and no one else. In 2006, I told Elizabeth about the mistake, asked her for her forgiveness, asked God for his forgiveness. And we have kept this within our family since that time."
Edwards, 55, said he told his entire family about the affair after it ended in 2006, and that his wife Elizabeth, who has incurable breast cancer, was "furious" but that their marriage would survive. The couple have three children, Cate, 25, Emma, 9, and Jack, 7. When he confessed his affair to his wife, "she was mad," Edwards said.
"She was angry," he said. "I think 'furious' would be a good way to describe it. She didn't understand. We both went through a process of trying to figure out how it happened, why it happened." Late Friday evening, Elizabeth Edwards posted a message on her blog, saying that she and her children will stand by Edwards.
"Our family has been through a lot. Some caused by nature, some caused by human weakness, and some most recently caused by the desire for sensationalism and profit without any regard for the human consequences," she wrote on http://elizabethedwards.dailykos.com/. "None of these has been easy. But we have stood with one another through them all. Although John believes he should stand alone and take the consequences of his action now, when the door closes behind him, he has his family waiting for him."
She too, denied in the blog post that Hunter's child was fathered by her husband.
Edwards told ABC News that he met secretly with former lover Rielle Hunter as recently as last month in a California hotel room at her request because "she was having some trouble, she just wanted to talk."
"I wanted her not to tell the public what had happened," he said at another point. "Very simple. That's the reason I went."
