I kept social over the weekend, so I missed out on the news that Barack Obama named Joe Biden as his running mate.

Upon reentering the news world today, I was racking my brain about an article I read about Biden not too long ago. I dug around online and finally found the GQ feature story that published last August called, "Joe Biden can't shut up..." I read the article some time during my backpacking through Italy, I think.

If you don't know anything about Biden, I recommend reading the article. It was written recently enough to be relevant (he was running for president at the time) but is also old enough to exclude all the news garbage since the Democratic primaries ended. I'm not saying the story's balanced, but it's timeless.
