Counter-Moroning: Obama To Play For Sympathy Vote By Deploying Confused Old Dullard To Republican Convention

I tried to best allah's headline and failed.

Precisely what a confused, senile old idiot might be able to accomplish in Tampa is unclear to me. Allah notes the enduring media myth of Biden's supposed Gift of the Blarney in attracting blue-collar white support; I cannot fathom how such a myth became fashionable in the media. Except that they figure Biden is dumb, crude, and racist, and in their eyes so are blue-collar people, so.

Did you know that Biden actually comes from wealth? He did. I didn't know that. But yeah, he was born of privilege:

he was born to privilege yet had to grow up middle-class because of his father’s disastrous business decisions (though in his own telling, it often sounds like life for young Joe was Dickensian; it wasn’t).

The Republicans, meanwhile, promise payback at the later Democratic convention:

I think it’s pretty common among parties to play with each other’s conventions, and we’ll have a pretty big presence in Charlotte as well,” [RNC chief Reince] Priebus said. “The nice thing about going first is that whatever they do to us, we can do ten times over to them.”

Does that mean that Romney may counter-program the Democratic convention in Charlotte next month? Priebus replied “You never know where we are going to be.”

“I’m a big believer in: if they punch us, we put on the brass knuckles and punch back,” he added.
