Biden pokes Halloween fun at McCain

October 30, 2008

SUNRISE, Florida – With two days until Halloween, Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden has offered Republican presidential hopeful John McCain some costume suggestions.

As the Nov. 4 election looms, the Delaware senator poked fun at McCain’s promise that his policies differ from Republican President George W. Bush.

“I know Halloween is just around the corner. Folks, John McCain, dressed as an agent of change, that costume doesn’t fit,” Biden said as he warmed up the crowd for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama in Sunrise, Florida, late on Wednesday.

“John McCain, who bragged about voting 90 percent of the time with George Bush. There is not one single substantive difference.”

Biden used the same joke earlier at a stump speech in Jupiter, Florida. No word on what Biden plans to wear for Halloween.
