So it's Joe Biden. The thesaurus pick. How many words can describe the Joe Biden pick? Underwhelming, pedestrian, sleepy, unimaginative, narcolepsic, undistinguished, conventional, ordinary, boilerplate, vanilla, unexceptional, flaccid, eupeptic, just plain boring.
Obama picked a Chevy Impala, standard issue V-8, 2 speed powerglide, four door , single tone gray, AM/FM radio with no CD player, bench seats and no air conditioning. Imagine Obama having spent the last few weeks shopping the new car dealers from New York to Virginia to Kansas to Texas. His laptop shortcut to Vehix.com had everything from a Chevy Volt electric to a Corvette to a Dodge Challenger to a Ford Mustang 500 lined up.
With anxious anticipation Obama's neighbors expected him to drive home with a stunning lane changer, a set of jaw dropping wheels that would lap the field, effortlessly. Turn the neighborhood upside down. And do it with style and panache.
Not to be. Obama drove home in a Chevy Impala. And a used Chevy Impala with balding retread tires and over 100,000 miles at that. A used Chevy Impala.
