I'd say Biden has them both beat by a country mile. The schtick about Obama being "clean" and having almost no "negro dialect" was priceless, and when he asked the paraplegic to stand up and take a bow, classic Biden.

If Hillary wasn't hiding on the other side of the world from the convention, I would have thought that naming her the new VP would be the September surprise.

Let's give a refresher about Quayle.



I'm sorry man, but I don't think we'll ever have another federal politician on the level of Quayle. I mean...



I'd love a new Quayle. That guy had me laughing regularly. But there's no way we'll ever get someone to rival him, let alone surpass him.

skip to 0:25 to begin.

I love 4:15, other classics include asking a man in a wheelchair to stand, and saying he would not accept the VP job after he's accepted it.

So apparently the Dems are moving the convention's final speeches from the stadium that they couldn't fill to a smaller venue....for fear of "lightning strikes". And they've taken God out of a standard plank in their party platform.

God? Lightning strikes? Perhaps Obama is playing it safe, "just in case."

Slowest growth in government in decades. Why is it that under Republican administrations government spending increases faster than inflation and not so much under Democratic ones?

Obama spending binge never happened - Page 2 - MarketWatch

Common Sense with Paul Jacob » Archive » Slowest Spending in Decades?

You know, I abandoned Bush in his second term because of the growth of government and his wayward spending. Sure, it matched the level of growth but we all know that government programs grow, but never shrink. Like the article says--common sense.

Of course I'm talking to a stone wall here. There will be riots in the street, double digit unemployment, more crazy debt and there will be some stalwart liberals waving their hammer and sickle flags, saying we haven't tried Socialism hard enough.
