How many words does it take to say "It wasn't my fault"? Whiner

I don't know, I didn't get a "not my fault" feel from it, I got a "we were down and here's the decision making process we went through to try to get back".

It'll never happen, but I'd love to see a similar article sometime on the selection of Joe Biden to be Barack Obama's running mate, because I think that decision probably had just as much "we'll alienate this demographic but get these others" as that ad. I recognized at the time that Biden was a brilliant choice because he made Obama less attractive to me, which meant that the Obama campaign was going with the "spread the widest net" tactic.
