We all know Biden is a joke as a VP selection. But there must be a reason he was selected. Here's my take on it. Hold on to your tin-foil hats for just a little longer:
Al-quaida is very much into symbolism. They picked September 11 to symbolize 9-1-1, the national emergency phone number.
The symbolism of an Obama-Biden ticket being so close in spelling to o-b-l would have Al-quaida fans jumping in the streets should bho win this election. They are probably already convinced that o-b-l is running for POTUS in spirit.
There are some moles in the Obama camp that are snickering wickedly.
McCain had better pick someone that can hold their own when it comes to being down right dirty in their own attacks.
Was that really the reason for the 911 pick? I thought the date had some other significance to them
Biden was Obama’s second choice. Everyone else was tied for first but they said they were busy.
Biden was picked because everyone else under consideration knew Obama is a lost cause and they refused the job.
The old "Good cop/Bad cop?"
Obama is trying to conpensate for the experience gap.
Biden was picked because fat Teddy wanted it that way.
Anybody but the bubba’s.
It's pretty freaking weird.
yeah, fer sure. Hey, did you know you can't even go into a 7-11 in my home state without speaking in an Indian accent?
That kind of runaway articulation isn't gonna be your friend.
They both spout off like drunks, it seems.
He was picked because Obama wanted me, personally, to get a good chuckle out of it.
So far I think all of the reasons presented on this thread—except for the original one—pertain.
puhfreaking leeze. tell us you’re kidding. Cheney has accomplishments.
Joe Biden has a vivid imagination and will rely on that in the veep debates. We better have a veep who can instantly epxose fabrications coming out of Joe’s mouth, before the lamestream media presstitutes can stamp them ‘fake but accurate’. Duncan Hunter and Fred Thompson each can do that while Romney, et al could not, not having experience needed.
We need some one mean and fast!
“Unfortunately, Fred Thompson takes six days to choose between two white shirts.”
He’ll wear whichever shirt John McCain tells him to wear.
Agreed. Biden is the attack dog while Obama returns to the kind, sweet, neo-Jesus.
But Obama has a screw loose in his head and can’t help but let all his race hatred seep out.
Barry and Michelle are uber-racists. Taxes are reparations in disguise.
Well if you’re looking at it from their perspective. He was the best they could do.
