The poor people of Florida. First, they have to deal with a state full of Floridians. Then the Republicans decide to hold their political convention there. And then news of a potential hurricane next week.
And now, on top of all that, Joe Biden says he plans to pop in and do his whole Joe Biden schtick. Have these people not suffered enough?
[Joe] Biden will be in Florida Monday and Tuesday, including a visit to the Tampa area, site of the 2012 Republican National Convention, the Obama campaign said today…
His presence in the state — the largest electoral battleground — is part of a coordinated effort by Democrats and President Obama’s re-election campaign to bracket the Republican festivities and steal some of the spotlight.
Democrats are planning a "counter convention" in downtown Tampa to be orchestrated out of a "rapid response war room" steps from where Republicans are huddled, the Democratic National Committee announced.
My God! It's the fabled "perfect storm" of political lore! And Mary and I are going to be right in the middle of it! Just like George Clooney and Marky Mark! This tiny little blog is equipped to survive a Category 4 Bullshitstorm like that!
Please, somebody… If I don't make it home, tell my wife to DVD the season finale of Breaking Bad.
