IOKIYAR: Veepstakes Edition

I love it when conservatives start throwing the labels around. There’s something so terribly hypocritical about it.

Now with the announcement that Joe Biden is Barack Obama’s running mate we have a lovely new label being tossed about by the right: insider.

OMG. Someone alert the media. Yes, after 35 years in the Senate, Joe Biden is a Washington insider!!!! We’re doooooomed!!!!!

Please. So John McCain was first elected to office in 1982, but he’s not a Washington insider? Meanwhile, Barack Obama is too inexperienced to be president?

Okie dokie. This ranks up there with the “Barack is a scary Muslim with a crazy Christian pastor” meme for convenient contradictions. Whatever it takes to slam the opposition, right?
