But back to the lumber. I love a good 2-by-four: weathered in a ditch on the side of the road, splintered by the median on the freeway emergency lane, their new smell and stickiness in the lumber yard, the sound of "2-by-four," the sound of one hitting the ground. I could go on and on. I've even got a 2-by-four in a couple poems now.
Maybe this is why I'm starting to like the Biden Veep pick now. I know it's a stretched association, but if it gets me enthusiastic about my candidate, well, that's a good thing.
Via the Politico:
ABC’s George STEPHANOPOULOS, to Kate SNOW on “Good Morning America Weekend”: “I have never seen a vice-presidential candidate, in the announcement, come out with THAT KIND of ferocity. Usually, you see it a little bit later in the campaign – not at the announcement. But Joe Biden showed one of the main reasons that Barack Obama picked him. They WANTED a scrapper out there. They WANT a fighter out there. They know Senator Biden will be able to get UNDER Senator McCain’s skin. They’ve known each other for an AWFUL long time – more than 35 years. As one Obama aide told me yesterday: We know that Joe Biden can go out there with a 2-BY-4 if he has to.”Question: are you going to watch the convention?
