Joe who?

I had not heard of Joe Biden before yesterday or indeed Scranton, PA so I watched old Joe on the box tonight and have just Googled the place he banged on about. The town is all about iron and coal, or it was in its infancy. Anyhow, old Joe was pretty good at the DNC, so fair play to him for that.

I wonder how Barack will do? He called me for some tips tonight so I said go easy on the jokes and the lofty rhetoric and speak to your TV audience. He said 'Thanks, BS5, I will'. We shall see.

My brother will claim that he had heard of Joe ages back but he's shining you on if you meet him and he says that.

Make sure you say Scranton with a nasal sounding "Skray -ton"! It actually is a nice city high on a mountain!

Yeah. That Joe Biden who was a presidential nomination contender, who debated Obama with all the other contenders.. who dropped out after Iowa.... that was a totally different Joe Biden.

Yep, it's not too too far from me. I had friend who went to college there and I have been a time or two.

I am more assured of Barak's victory now that McCain picked his running mate.

Quite agreed - McCain's running mate makes for a very interesting week to come. Cool!
