Top this if you can, McCain!
WASHINGTON — Senator Barack Obama has chosen Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware to be his running mate, turning to a leading authority on foreign policy and a longtime Washington hand to fill out the Democratic ticket, Mr. Obama announced in text and e-mail messages early Saturday.

Oh Lordy. How is McCain going to top Barack Obama’s choice for VP, Joe Biden – a man who has been in the Senate since time out of mind? No more calling that Barack guy – inexperienced! He’s got Joe Biden. No more calling McCain old – lest we offend Joe Biden. We now have THREE United States Senate insiders running for the Presidency. And they continue to call themselves agents of “CHANGE.” This clinches it – McCain is going to have to tap Senator Robert Clansman Byrd for his VP pick. He’s about the only Senator left who’s been in the Senate longer than Joe Biden. It would be a great twist to tap a Democrat too and pick up West Virginia for McCain.
