Things to look for…

…from Obama, Biden and their army of surrogates, as the campaign heats up:

Decibel level: high

Factual content: low

Ad hominem attacks: huge frequency spike

Scare tactics: red lining

Truth quotient: scarcer than the great auk

Civility quotient: Are you kidding?

Update: Suuuuure they are: "Team Obama confident Biden can take on Ryan".

"They gonna put ya'll back in chains! Paul Ryan don't know nuthin' 'bout birthin' no babies! Can I get an amen?"

You know what I like about Slow Joe? It's going to be nearly impossible to replace him, because I can't think of many Democrats who would be stupid enough to want to sign on to Obama's "unsinkable" cruise liner.

Oh, I don't know Rebecca. I suspect that, if Hillary replaces Biden on the ticket and Obama-Hillary loses, she'll be set up as the frontrunner for 2016. It will be spun that she took one for the team. And, of course, if they win she's set up even better.

The Clintons seem to have the same sort of irrational devotion from many Dems that the Kennedys had. Why so many Dems are attracted to sewer trout (P. J. O'Rourke's description of the Kennedys) I'll never understand.
