UPDATE: I was wrong about McCain's VP choice. It wasn't any of the big names, but instead, it was Alaskan governor and former Miss Alaska runner-up and total MILF, Sarah Palin. In fact, I bet most people didn't see this coming since McCain went off the rader with this pick. Nevertheless, it's clear McCain is going after the undecided Hillary voters rather than trying to pick a VP who could be president if McCain croaked(a very real possibility). On a side note, I don't know every detail about Palin, so I'm not going to pretend I do. As of now, this seems like a very wise pick. Definitely rattled a few brains.
Biden is Obama's political tag partner, but who will Mr. McCain choose? I have a gut feeling it will be Joe Lieberman, primarily due to the fact that McCain has been making an awful lot of appearances with the Repubicrat. It's been his way of testing the waters and trying to see how Lieberman appeals to his base. After all, Lieberman could help steal some uncertain Democrats and independents. Nevertheless, Karl Rove--the most manipulative, black-hearted ghoul outside of Cheney--recently contacted Lieberman and urged him to withdraw his name from nomination for the GOP vice presidential pick. Oddly enough, the article about Rove's arm twisting was quickly taken off the front pages of most news sites shortly after it was put up. And Rove has been pushing Romney for the VP nod.
Sure, maybe he feels Lieberman, Huckabee, and Guiliani will be easy targets for the Democrats, but Romney's an easy target too. All the Donkeys have to do is drive home the fact that Romney is big business. The amount of disdain for corporations and corporate lobbyists should make most Americans want nothing to do with putting another businessman in office. I'd say we need to get rid of lawyers and businessmen as presidents, but most politicians are lawyers, so I'll simply ask that we stop electing businessmen--especially failed businessmen like Bush. When businessmen get into office they tend to make a bunch of shady moves that set them up for a nice retirement when their term is up. What happened to getting a lucrative book deal and sponsoring a charity? We don't need government favoritism of companies. It pushes the chips towards one end of the economic table rather than spreading them out.
As the Nesquik bunny says: Share the wealth.
And as much as I hate saying the same thing that has been beaten to death over the past couple months (especially this week), McCain sold his soul for a shot at the presidency. The man sold his soul to a guy who spread rumors about him, telling people he had an illegitimate black child--you can bet Rove was responsible for that gem. McCain sold his soul to Bush and Cheney and big business. He went from a man I once respected for his ability to think for himself to a man I pity and loathe because he abandoned the one attribute that made him honorable: his independence. I guess that's what happens when you get old; you lose your independence one way or another, be it natural causes or strange decisions you make. Then again, maybe McCain is suffering from Alzheimer's. Maybe he simply forgot where he stood in 2000, and the real Axis of Evil (Bush, Cheney, Rove) is using their manipulative superpowers to do what Putin did, and put a puppet into power.
I don't want a man who sold his soul as our president, especially now. And I certainly don't want a man who didn't have a soul to begin with as vice president. Romney's God is green and rectangular, and he will do what he must to make his God a bigger part of his life. McCain is a soulless shell of himself. So ask yourself: Do you really want that pair running our country in these times? 21st century Republicans are like 13th century Christians: blind loyalists who will do what they must for the benefit of the group. And if you aren't a member of their clan then you're in the way and must be flattened into the pavement.
