Juxtaposition Of The Day

From AP Republican shill Ron Fournier’s hit piece on Obama’s selection of Joe Biden:

Biden is anything but a change agent, having been in office longer than half of all Americans have been alive. Longer than McCain.

And…

EDITOR’S NOTE: Ron Fournier has covered national politics for The Associated Press for nearly 20 years.

Insiders are bad… except when they’re the media.

Hey, it’s a good thing Obama didn’t choose Galactus, or Fournier would be harping on Obama’s lack of confidence in his ability to devour worlds.

Did You Even Consider Galactus???

Galactus is toned!

Well, I guess Obama’s strategy of floating really godawful VP candidates like Bayh and Kaine has succeeded in making most of us relieved that he picked Biden, but he should have given the dark horse option some more thought:

Galactus, Eater of Worlds

Pros: Balances out Obama’s troublingly semi-dovish past with tough, muscular “eat the world” policy.

Cons: Will eat the world.

Granted, picking the Devourer Of Worlds probably wouldn’t go over real well with most progressives at first, but once they see a 100-foot tall purple guy bellow out “SILENCE, FOOL!  Galactus cares not for the petty concerns of your trivial planet!  Galactus hungers!” in the vice-presidential debate, I think they’d start to appreciate having him on their side.

On the other hand, it’s probably unlikely that Galactus would ever accept second billing, so perhaps the Silver Surfer would have been a more appropriate choice.  In additional to the usual vice-presidential and running-mate responsibilities, he could scout ahead and identify which states and cities are ripe for Obama to devour.
