If McCain is elected, ...

Who would Palin appoint to the VP post when she takes over the Oval Office?

So, according to Palin, McCain's main qualification and Obama's main disqualification is that John McCain was a POW and Obama was not.

You know, we should just amend the Constitution requiring that all candidates for President must have served in combat in the US Military. With McCain and Palin as Presidents for the next 12 years, we could ensure that most Americans will get that combat experience. And think of the economic boon as more and more communities see prosthetics manufacturing plants open up in their back yards.

Forget another cold war. We could just go head to head militarily with Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China. We know that wars generate jobs as the economy shifts to a war economy. If we defeat China militarily, we won't have to worry about paying them back the billions of dollars George Bush borrowed from them. Either way, the next few generations won't have to pay back the debt, because they'll be too busy getting shot to shit in wars so John McCain can overcome his feelings of inadequacy and helplessness he experienced as a prisoner of war. It will be much cheaper for us to have Medicare or the Veterans Administration pay for his PTSD counseling sessions. Oh, that's right, he won't fund Veterans care.

Fortunately, when McCain dies of natural old age, Palin will take the reins and probably try to amend the Constitution to eliminate the VP job altogether. Imagine the savings. She can't figure out what a VP does anyway. But we will have our first national bake sale to support fake family planning centers and spend billions to revoke a couple million dollars in nationwide domestic partner benefits.  And we will finally have Creationism and God as science instead of as a matter of faith.

I've learned today from very unreliable sources that John McCain's selection of Governor Palin is actually a birthday joke he decided to play on the electorate.

He plans to announce his real VP pick, former FEMA director Michael Brown, Thursday at the Republican Convention.

I though I was in the club.  I thought I was on the "in".  He promised me I'd be one of the first to know.  But I had to hear it from someone else.  You've probably heard by now that Joe Biden is Obama's pick for V.P.  And I've got no love from my man Barrack.  Apparently somebody thought it would be good to alert the Secret Service about Obama's pick before they alerted me.  Ha!

ABC's Jack Tapper pretty much got it all nailed down at 10:50 PM EDT YESTERDAY!!!! when he noted that several could-be VP's got confirmations they weren't gonna be and that the Secret Service had dispatched a protective team to the home of the Democratic Senator from Delaware, Joe Biden.  (Remind me to add "Biden" to the dictionary of my spell-checker.)  This was posted while I was putting my kids to bed at around 8 PM PDT.  Four hours later, I got an email from somebody else letting me know what Barrack said he was going to let me know.  I am deflated.  I still love Barrack and I think Biden was his best pick, but I can't get over my disappointment. 

Next thing you know, he'll be announcing as his picks my suggested picks of Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Christine Gregoire for the head of the Environmental Protection Agency and for Attorney General, respectively---without personally consulting me.  I just couldn't bear it.

I now have to throw my considerable lack of political weight behind a man who thinks the economy is fine, that you are not rich unless you make over $5 million dollars per year, that the rest of the country has as much trouble keeping track of how many homes they own as he does, that couldn't bring himself to vote for the last ELEVEN bills supporting military veterans and active duty soldiers, that seems to think experience as a lobbyist is a prerequisite for hiring campaign staff, that had an affair with a younger, prettier woman while his wife was recovering from a horrible accident, that then divorced said accident victim to marry his mistress, that equates military field experience with expertise in foreign affairs, that thought it was a good idea to retort "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." to his wife when she noted, "You're getting a little thin up there", that thought provoking the Russians was a good thing, and that has sold out his integrity on virtually every compromise issue he's ever championed.  Yup.  I've got to vote for him.
