Obama’s shocking choice for running mate

Filed under: humor, News, politics — Tags: , , , , — skeptisys @ 11:16 am

After a long and media frenzied period of non-news, Obama this week shocked the world by choosing a pro-corporation right wing Joe Biden as his running mate.

During his many years working for corporate profits,  Biden has shown himself to be pro-RIAA, pro-war, and anti-constitional rights.  Biden is thought by experts to be the first rich white male to run for the office of Vice President of the United States in over 3 years.  This surprising last-second choice by Obama and multiple boards of directors to not go with a black female candidate who cares about human sufferring, came as a gigantic shock to at least 1 person (unidentified at press time).

This choice comes as a welcome relief to multi-billion and trillion dollar industries who were understandably uneasy about Obama only having a few years experience sacrificing human rights for their profits.

Minorities, women, children, 90% of the U.S., and people in countries other than the U.S. were thought to be royally assfucked by the decision, and again turned to their backup plan of praying to an imaginary God for help.  God was again unavailable for comment.

  1. I was disappointed too. Although it probably would have been political suicide, it would have been nice to see Dennis Kucinich selected as his running mate. He was easily the only dem with the integrity and ethics to get the US and the west out of the stinking mess were in.

  2. Oh yes, I would have liked to see Kucinich as the running mate. I am not sure it would have been political suicide though, Obama lost his lead over McCain in the polls after he voted for the extreme right wing Bill authorizing warrantless spying on American citizens. Most Americans do not want the government to spy on them, so that was political suicide – bringing someone who agrees with the people would only help Obama regain the support he pissed away.

  3. The Republicans choice for VP pales in comparison.

  4. That’s true Tom. They (McCain’s campaign) think Palin will attract votes because she is female and young, but in reality she is against women’s rights and freedoms, and a grandmother (a very pretty one, granted). As for her being a maverick, she seems to have standard Republican values: have a narrow simplistic fanatical view of the world, and punish and ban anyone who thinks or acts differently.
