So apparently Biden will be Obama's running mate. Is this good for the Democrats? Is it bad for the Democrats? What will he bring to the ticket? Does anyone care?

My assessment is that Obama picked Biden mostly to impress the media, and rightly so. Hardly anyone decides on their presidential vote based on the running mate; both Bushes had dreadful running mates in 1988 and 2000 and won anyway. (Well, not in 2000, but that's a long story...)

The only bad pick for Obama would have been someone who made people nervous, and Biden doesn't do that. So good for you, Barack.

Why Is This Skank Different From All Other Skanks?

Apparently Lindsay Lohan plans to convert to Judaism. Good luck learning all the laws of kashrut, Lindsay. What? Oh, Reform Judaism. Good luck anyway.
