Tonight, it's Joe's turn

Barack Obama and Joe Biden on Saturday

If Monday told the story of the the Obama family, and Tuesday told the story of Democratic unity, Wednesday needs to tell the story of why John McCain is unacceptable -- and the person responsible for telling that story is Joe Biden.

Hopefully, we'll see a mix of sober criticism and humorous, mocking derision. Based on his effort from Saturday, Biden should be able to pull that off, and if he does, his speech could be the most fun of the convention so far -- even more entertaining than Brian Schweitzer's which definitely wins the award for the most enjoyable rock 'em, sock 'em affair of the convention.

I'm sure there will be plenty of material in Biden's speech about Barack Obama and about himself, but tonight is the night to begin the closing argument of the convention: that the past eight years have been a calamity, and that the only thing that John McCain offers is four more years of the same old stuff.
