Dennis P. hits the high notes, and Radley Balko reminds us that Joe Biden is a drug-war simp and dedicated supporter of the prison-planet police state. Personally I'm tickled by the fact that the Donk veep candidate is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the finance and credit industries in this year of populist know-nothingism on the campaign trail. I remember when Proggie Netrootsia was givin' the ol' "push back" against the terrible, unjust, no-good, very bad "bankruptcy bill," of which Loudmouth Joe was a prime mover. You have to hand it to the Donk, though. Its mind is supple, man.
