Joe Biden and Lunch Counter Intelligence
Hillary Clinton Addresses the Delegates on Tuesday Night at the Democratic Convention in Denver.

You can tell a lot from a way a person orders and eats lunch at a restaurant.
There's the type of person who is decisive and knows exactly want they want. Like me. I go to the Chipolte Grill...I order a chicken, black bean, green salsa, silantro, and guac' burrito in a flour tortilla and I order an ice tea to wash it down. There is no wavering....There is no second guessing. I know this before I go to the person taking my order. And because I know what I want I eat every last bit of that burrito.
Then there are others that make up the order while the person is taking the order. As if the drive to the restaurant and fifteen minutes at the table with a menu wasn't enough to figure it out. Not mentioning any names but their initials are Nadia Bacon. These people, are also always the ones that have food left over at the end of the meal because again, they didn't know what they wanted and were not happy with their selection.
I bring this up because I heard about something that happened on Monday in Denver. A restaurant in town gets wind that Senator and Barack Obama running mate Joe Biden and his entourage are coming through for lunch. Biden orders a bunch of Turkey legs on top of everything else... Uh, Turkey legs? This isn't Thanksgiving time, is it? Who eats turkey legs for lunch? In August. Even I could tell you that those Turkey legs were going to be spared and not eaten...and sure enough they weren't.
Do we really want a guy that is a heartbeat from the President who isn't decisive enough to even know what he wants for lunch? Do we want a guy that wastes our tax dollars on food that is never going to be eaten? I think not...my fellow Americans.
We already know he can't write a speech on his own.
