Having a little Sunday talk show fun. It was reported by Steve Schmidt and others in the McCain camp that Sarah Palin couldn't get Joe Biden's name right and kept calling him O'Biden.

Palin had a reflexive tendency to refer to Biden as "O'Biden," Schmidt revealed. He says other people on the campaign staff came up with a solution. "It was multiple people -- and I wasn't one of them-- who all said at the same time, 'Just say, 'Can I call you Joe?'' which she did."

What's funny is that she still called him O'Biden at the debate, so there's that. So when I heard Dick Cheney do the same thing on ABC's THIS WEEK, I couldn't help but laugh for a while.

Cheney: Of course, O'Biden and -- Obama and Biden campaigned from one end of the country to the other for two years criticizing our Iraq policy.

Biden explained what he meant on MTP when he used the word "success in Iraq" and it's not the way Cheney tries to frame his answer.
