Veep Watch 2009 – Day 2

Joe Biden in the Dining FacilityI still didn’t see Joe today, but I felt his presence. It’s not like Darth Vader sensing Obi-Wan Kenobi’s presence in the first Star Wars. It’s more like the near strip-search I had to endure going into the dining facility.

NEWS FLASH: The gun is fully visible on my uniform!

Still, Joe didn’t once acknowledge how my vote helped him and Obama win the White House.

You know, there’s one thing about all the news coverage surrounding this visit that annoys the crap out of me. News writers keep referring to Biden meeting with “soldiers” at Camp Victory.

If you’re a journalist, I’m going to give you some free advice. This is a JOINT operation. I’ve seen Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines working together in this endeavor. Just in my office space, all four services are represented.

So, when you say Biden met with “soldiers” referring to troops in general, you’re disrespecting the Sailors, Airmen and Marines who are also spending time away from their families this holiday weekend.

It’s bad enough I had to work all day (on a holiday) in a country where people want to kill me while I’m separated from my wife and son, but you have to go and completely ignore the contributions I’m making as an Airman in Iraq.

Associated Press, you can suck it!
