Wait until the Indian-American community gets a load of this one. Roll the tape above on Joe Biden from January 2008 at the Iowa State Fair making the following comment: “You can’t walk into a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.” Say what? Way to court the Indian American and Asian American immigrant community. Not.
Finally, with some degree of credibility, the McCain campaign can argue that Obama thinks youth and inexperience is so important for change that he had to pick a 30-year seasoned liberal to boast his own paltry credentials.
Why vote for Obama who has to rope in experience with his No. 2 pick, when you can have a PRESIDENT like John McCain, who will be Ready from Day One to face down Chavez, certain threats looming in the Middle East and North Korea, Putin and certain "Irregulars" in Georgia who continue to burn villages and loot, rob and kill innocent civilians. Another ten days for a full withdraw. Will believe it when I see it.
From what I understand, please correct me if I am wrong, but Sen. Biden totally supported segregating Iraq into three ethnic states, but then also later supported John McCain's plan for the surge. Looking forward to see how the MoveOn/Huffington-types take to the First Stater - Senator Biden. (DE was the 1st State of the Union and has 7,000,000 chickens and 700,000 people in it. No joke.)
Anyway, this is a great day for the McCain campaign. As they say, many elections are determined by who is running, regardless of what they say. I think Johnny Mac won today. Today should mark the launch of a new coalition: Indian-Americans for McCain!

Saturday, August 23, 2008
On the day that Barack Obama announced Joe Biden as his running mate, 39% of voters said he made the right choice. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 25% disagreed and another 35% are not sure.
Women are notably less enthusiastic than men—33% of women say Biden was the right choice while 27% disagreed...
... just 43% of Democratic women said the presumptive nominee made the best pick while 23% disagreed.
Overall, 32% said the selection of Biden made them more likely to vote for Obama and an identical percentage said it made them less likely to do so. Among unaffiliated voters, 25%are more likely to vote for Biden while 33% had the opposite view.
