Biden? Biden? Anyone remember Joe Biden?

In case the American voting population may have forgotten, there is another vice presidential nominee out there.  His name is Joe Biden.

He could be the equivalent of the Professor and Mary Ann in the first year of Gilligan's Island where they were just referred to as "the rest" in the popular sitcom theme song.  But as "Island" fans will remember, in season two they were given their proper billing at the end of the song.

Back in the saddle

Just like the forgotten duo,  Joe Biden is back and getting his proper recognition.   Why?  Well, it's because of Sarah Palin, sure, but news is news.

He's gearing up for his October 2 debate with the "moose-shooter" (as Barack Obama described Governor Palin recently).  And he's doing it by preparing with another female Governor who shares similarities with Palin.

Getting ready to rumble

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm will play the part of Sarah Palin in multiple sparring sessions preparing the sometimes-gaffe prone Senator for the upcoming showdown.

Granholm and Palin are both sitting Governors.  They're both in the same age bracket and both competed in beauty pageants.  In fact, Granholm once appeared on "The Dating Game."  And they've both been described as "tough as nails."

Just a sample

Biden gave a little preview of his strategy at a fundraiser last night in Chicago.
