We interrupt this blogging hiatus to bring you my reaction to breaking news:
Michael Dukakis named Sen. Lloyd Bentsen of Texas as his vice presidential running mate early Saturday, balancing his ticket with a seasoned congressional veteran well-versed in foreign policy and defense issues.
Dukakis announced the pick on his Web site with a photo of the two men and an appeal for donations. A text message went out shortly afterward that said, “Mike has chosen Senator Lloyd Bentsen to be our VP nominee.”

This suggests that John McCain will have to pick Spongebob Squarepants to be his running mate.
Biden: “I knew Dan Quayle. I worked with Dan Quayle. Dan Quayle was a friend of mine. And Spongebob, you are no Dan Quayle.”
