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.”

    Joe Biden says on the War and Surge:

    "John McCain was wrong and Barack Obama was right."

    Now most fair-minded people would agree that the War was wrong, and, that likewise the Surge was right.

    I guess Obama’s being against the War and against the Surge would mean Obama was right before he was wrong!

    And since McCain was for the War and for the Surge, McCain was wrong before he was right!

    Now Biden voted for the War and against the Surge – I guess that makes, the so called strong on foreign policy senator, just plain wrong……100% wrong!

    I am a 30s-something, single mom, Pentecostal, white woman, and from WV that will be voting Obama in November. Please don't judge all WV by the few uneducated, loud mouths that make the rest of us cringe.

    Change we can believe in. Obama/Biden 08 and 12

    A bucket of fluff is quite quaint and just makes me feel fuzzy all over. I fear there are some rotten apples in the bottom of the bucket though and Joe Biden probably sees even a bit more. Biden is doing a great job of keeping his stark honesty in check. When will the media get over the fluff and get back to the old saying, "It's about the economy stupid". I think today, showed that.
