Biden introducer: Palin is 'bucket of fluff'

FLAT ROCK, Michigan (CNN) – Barack Obama and Joe Biden have been saving their fire on the stump for McCain and all but ignoring Sarah Palin. But a nervous supporter who introduced Biden in Flat Rock didn’t have any qualms about jabbing the Alaska governor.

“Barack Obama has made an intelligent choice for the vice presidency,” said Barbara Theaker from the podium, “How so very different this is from that bucket of fluff that the Republican candidates have chosen for the same position.”

Biden smiled and moved towards the edge of the stage feigning an attempt at escape but came back, taking the mic a few minutes later. “I’ll tell you what, you are good,” Biden said. “My lord, all I need is ten of you in America and this is a walk home.”

    I wouldn't give her THAT much credit, she's more like a PUDDLE OF PUKE.

    Joe who?
    Isn't this the same person who couldn't even win his home statre in a primary? Enough said.

    He dropped out before Deleware had their primary. Had he stayed in he may have one.

    Bucket of fluff, that is true, a bucket of fluff lies.

    Biden is going to make Palin look like a joke in the debate.

    It is crazy to believe how many people have been brain washed by McSame and Pali(es)n and their lies. Come October Obama and Biden will be many points ahead.

    Obama will be president in November. Joe Biden will be Vice President.

    The Republican ticket should be ashamed of all their lies. Even Karl Rove a repub. said they went to far.

    She "is" a bucket of fluff and you all know it, so stop trying to pull the whole gender card thing because in this climate with the truth that supports the notion of her incompetence, it'll only put women back 100 years to continuosly refute these chargers. Always justifying her readiness in the face of her sheer incompetence is a cute tactic, but come on...

    The McCain campaign set themselves up for this with the big dust-up over the lipstick on a pig comment and by keeping Palin from taking questions from the press and the public the way a real VP candidate would do. This whole Palin selection is rapidly becoming a laughingstock, even better than Danny Quayle.

    "FLUFF" – Really???? Seems like it is McCain/Palin that is WAY up in all the polls. Thought the DNC was going to win this time – guess NOT.
    McCain/Palin have EARNED my vote – and Millions of Americans feel the same way. The DNC picked the Weak guy – who will never be elected.
