Now, I've never been a big fan of Joe Biden; well, actually, I've never cared one way or the other about him, so I'm gonna give him a chance to win me over tonight (I know he's concerned about this, too. Joe:, Jill, honey; what if Padre Mickey doesn't like my speech tonight? What will I do? Jill Biden: Oh, don't worry, dear; you'll be fine!). Democrats seem to pick decent folks, smart folks, for the position of Vice President, while the Republicans always try to choose someone worse than their presidential candidate. I believe this is because the Republicans see the vice-president as assassination insurance. I mean, seriously: who was going to shoot George H.W. Bush? No one wanted Dan Quail for president. Heck, they didn't even talk about impeaching Richard Nixon until after Spiro Agnew resigned. And, be serious, you know ol' Dubya been safe because no one wanted Dick Cheney officially in charge!! That's why I think McCain will choose Joe Lieberman. It just makes sense and is in the Republican Party tradition.
I'm looking forward to hearing former president Bill Clinton tonight, because, even though he screwed-up, even when he screws-up he's a thousand times better than the current Super Screw-up. Has there ever been anyone as incompetent as George W. Bush? And he encourages incompetence in others! For cripes' sakes; what is wrong with that guy? But when Bill Clinton was president, the country was prosperous and folks were working and we were at peace. Who knew that The Onion was prescient when it wrote At long last, our long national nightmare of Peace and Prosperity is finally over! when Dubya was
So, I'm looking forward to this evening's broadcasts, and, believe me, I am going to avoid that
P.S. What the heck is wrong with the Repugs in Alaska? Stevens' won his primary? Just not corrupt enough for ya? Sheesh!
