Patriotism Then and Now

The 1773 model [Boston Tea Party]:

The 2008 model:

“We want to take money [from the wealthy] and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,” Democrat vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden said in an interview this week on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Talking about the “fundamental differences” between Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin, Biden said that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more taxes. “It’s time to be patriotic... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

UPDATE: Now, according to this Wall Street Journal article, Sen. Biden claims that God is on his side.

If Gov. Sarah Palin slices and dices this motormouth in the vice presidential debate, he might drop out, but IMHO, dumping Biden does not appear to be in the cards at this time. The Obama campaign is deeply committed to the concept that a god doesn't make mistakes!
