Joe Biden and the bikers

I look at this photo and see a sweet man. How genuinely he connects with us regular people. Our pearl clutching DC media looks at it and sees this:
Vice President Joe Biden got caught in a stunning photo with a female biker sitting on his lap.

The Associated Press snapped the shot at Cruisers Diner in Seaman, Ohio on Sunday.
Stunning? Stunning is when Rmoney sits down at a diner and tells a gay military veteran that he opposes same sex marriage and believes their spouses should be denied equal family benefits under the law. None of our DC media found this astounding ackward encounter "stunning" that I can recall.

The veteran has Romney's number:
Garon, an independent, was gleeful after the encounter, and was not impressed with Romney.

"You can't trust him. I saw it in his eyes," he said.
Romney's inability to connect with the average American is stunning. Joe Biden's ability to genuinely connect to the people is charming. Heartwarming even. Not that the DC media will ever spin that way. Some wacko wingnut might accuse them of being biased towards the Democrats instead of subservient to the Republicans.

Do you think that matters any more? The Republicans are so good at making people stupid with anger that they lead them around by their hate the way you lead a bad dog around by his leash and besides, too many of the rest of us are convinced that it doesn't matter and so they don't vote.

If everybody voted, there wouldn't be any Republicans doing much more that being a bathroom attendant or torturing small animals or stealing coins from the blind.

Seeing small signs of hope that the electorate is wising up to the GOP trickery. But not taking anything for granted.
