The Raw Story | Biden attacks McCain’s ‘7 kitchen tables’

This is a great opening “comebacker” for the McCain ads attacking Obama for being of all things, “elitist”.


As Joe Biden spoke today for the first time as Barack Obama’s running mate, he used the opportunity to attack John McCain, distancing himself from the Republican opponent he has called a friend.
After an introduction from Obama, Biden launched into a speech that, among other things, said McCain can’t understand the struggles of middle-class Americans when he owns seven homes.
“Ladies and gentlemen, your kitchen table is like mine. You sit there at night before you put the kids — after you put the kids to bed and you talk, you talk about what you need. You talk about how much you are worried about being able to pay the bills. Well, ladies and gentlemen, that’s not a worry John McCain has to worry about. It’s a pretty hard experience. He’ll have to figure out which of the seven kitchen tables to sit at,” Biden said, drawing cheers from the audience.

    I heard last night on Bill Maher that McCain had only previously even spoken to her once, and called her last week to offer her the job.

    “More experience” than Obama is a crazy one. Nobody seems to want to count any “community organizing” and the sacrafice of a much morte lucrative law career to do some inner city work in Chicago as experience.

    Speaking of experience, if Palin has an infant, one with Down’s Syndrome at that, how does the “family values” crowd square that with even taking this job? I ask that question myself, since I can also claim to be a “family values” man myself (won’t give up that designation to the Right either)

    I’ll have to do a post on this one for aure. Thanks for the request for my take on it.

    What’s your take on Sarah Palin? I’m surprised. Maybe shocked is a better word. I heard today that Giulani said she has more experience than Obama. Other Republicans have made the same statement. This relates to your post about the uninformed electorate, doesn’t it? The belief that we will accept the interpretation that a woman with thin experience is prepared to “jump in” as McCain says and run the nation if need be is amazing.
