    And the NY Times dismissed Biden all together. Apparently the Times thinks the cost of Palin's wardrobe is front page news and the Democratic VP nominee's guarantee of an international crises within 6 months of an Obama administration is not page one material. In fact they have yet to mention it at all. I guess Biden is a "made" man at the Times.

    why is it front page news what Biden said? it's not newworthy in the least IMO.

    However, a candidate who presents herself as "like everyone else" who spends $150K on wardrobe? that's newsworthy :lol:
