Just a Heartbeat Away

We’ll get the Demo VP pick this weekend. Do you remember the good ole’ days when it didn’t make a damn bit of difference who the Vice President was? Poppy Bush didn’t get a lot of respect. Dan Quayle was a punch line. Al Gore was a totem pole. That was all before Darth Cheney was hired to head the Vice Presidential search committee for Bush II and wound up nominating himself. What chutzpa! He co-opted the Presidency from a lazy, intellectually challenged puppet head and in doing so has made the Vice Presidency very relevant. We’d better pay close attention from now on, particularly to whoever gets the GOP VP nod. I have a lot of respect for John McCain, but he’s a geezer and doesn’t look like he’s long for this world.

Robert Mugabe is 80 years old and still around. My point? John McCain might still be around for quite some time. Hopefully senility won't turn him in a crazy despot.

It’s a damn shame Zimbabwe isn’t overflowing with oil. If it were, our government would have sent some troops in by now and he’d be living in a spider hole, which is where he belongs.
