Biden Fundraising Email: 'This Has Never Been About Barack And Me'

President Moment-The-Planet-Began-To-Heal: just a regular guy! Let's get the weekend off to a smiling start with this rib-tickler, courtesy Joe Biden.  In a fundraising email I just received from the Obama campaign website [of whose email list of course I'm a proud member], good old Joe claimed, with a straight cyber-face:

"This has never been about Barack and me. We're just two guys."

More after the jump.

R-i-i-i-g-h-t.  Barack Obama, the man who never makes it about himself.  The regular guy who famously said [YouTube] on the night he wrapped up the nomination:


"I am absolutely certain that generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs for the jobless.  This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." 

Note: the Obama campaign can of course send out messages over the signature of any of its players.  Not surprising that they chose to employ Biden, with his carefully-cultivated image as a regular guy, for this one.  Had it gone out in The One's name, he would have been laughed off the Ethernet!
