The New Decider

posted by on August 24 at 2:28 AM

The New York Times on how Obama made the call, and where and when Biden got it:

It was a process in which Mr. Obama applied intense secrecy, careful pragmatism and political input from a team of internal and external advisers that have guided his campaign from the start. And it ended Thursday with a phone call from Mr. Obama, who reached Mr. Biden as he was at a dentistís office where he had taken his wife to have a root canal.

So if Hillary ever gets elected president, will she abolish all punctuation signs and capitalization, too? So THAT's what the ravings of a lunatic look like.

Good to know!

The Hillsterics need mental help.

You have to be joking.

Clearly the DNC pulled all the strings and Biden called in the chits to get this done.

Obama is the lapdog of the retired Democrats of '72.

"one day slick barry will face teh justice system for his sins"

That was pretty neat, Noobamaboambabobamo08. I think we'd all sleep sounder if all evildoers someday have to face the unyielding hand of 'teh justice system'.

@7, and you know "teh justice system" is run by "teh gheiz," right?

But didn't Biden support Bush's war?

Mrs. Biden will probably remember that root canal as the most enjoyable moment of the campaign...

@9- yes, but as you know, Bush's camp tricked most of the politicians with propaganda (exactly like dictators of the past). He now wants troops out and seems like he wants to right his past wrongs...right?
