Daily Kos won’t be too happy with the Biden choice.

ABC News’s Jake Tapper spent his Saturday morning documenting some of Joe Biden’s dumbest moments. (It’s long.)  My favorite came from a Biden 1988 campaign ad in which he seemed to anticipate Obama’s candidacy:

“The White House isn’t the place to learn how to deal with international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the economic future of the next generation,” said a TV ad for Sen. Joe Biden’s 1988 presidential campaign.  “A President has got to know the territory, but that’s not enough.”

Ed Morrissey documented Biden’s list of lies that helped derail his own campaign in 1988.

Rush Limbaugh on Friday lamented news (of the hour) indicating the Biden would NOT be the choice.  I wish Rush were on today–last I heard was Rush offering a prayer that the reports were wrong and Obama would pick Biden.

For my part, I see Biden’s selection as evidence that the Dems don’t think Obama is man enough to win this thing.  They went for stability, but went with a liberal Senator from and eastern state.  Not exactly a diverse ticket. 

Obama was on the path to a rather embarrassing defeat before the announcement of a veep.  I see nothing in Biden’s selection to alter that momentum.
