Obama's Vice President Search

Here are some great leads on the search.

Hannibal Lecter - should be able to steal a segment of the homicidal maniac voting block from the republicans.

Lester Maddox - you could dig his dead ass up and court the southern cracker vote.

Richard Nixon - now that's fucking bi-partisan bitchez.

Newt Gingrich - isn't dead or a fictional character but he might as well be.

Evangeline Lily - for no other reason than I would fucking watch CSpan every time she had the Senate gavel.

Emmylou Harris - because I adore her.

There you go. That list makes about as much sense as all the bullshit speculation and wishful thinking I've heard on what passes for news these days. Obama has said he won't expose this process to the the press and media. If you don't hear it from him, it's not fucking true.

Still, Emmylou would be a great choice. She could flat run stuff, and run it nicely too.

Lester Maddox...this list is flat out brilliant. I could add so many others who could balance the ticket nicely.

But Emmylou--now that would add a nice song and dance to the whole performance, wouldn't it?

Seems to me in pres. campaigns we usually get more than our share of that between the primaries and Labor Day.

The VP stakes are the talking point of the moment so we should get lots of inane chatter until the MSM moves on to the next "issue". I, for one, would definitely welcome Emmylou as VP as long as it doesn't keep her from singing.

Why not Dick Chaney?

Anonymous, Dick Cheney would bring in the dead people vote, but given Obama's Chicago background, that's a given anyhow (snark!). Really, Dick is a better match for John McCain. We could have a betting pool -- which one is going to kick the bucket first, John or Dick? The other thing would be, which one is playing the Jack Lemmon character, and which one is playing the Walter Matthau character? I say Johnny Mac is more Matthau than Lemmon, and Dick is a great Lemmon. Whatcha think?!

As for Emmylou, she can be my Vice President any day. Or anything else she wants to be, for that matter :-).

VP Cheney has asked me to invite you to go quail hunting with him this weekend.
PS: Emmylou would be a fine choice for VP, but were it me, I'd nominate Lucinda Williams.

There's no one out there that has aged more gracefully than Emmylou. And she's still got "the voice"!

Can I nominate Geena Davis? She's had a bit of rehearsal time.

"we need a vp who looks hot in her underwear"

Now you're really leaving it open for anyone of the Mark Foley-Vitter ilk.

I'd go for Geena Davis. She has experience (like Schwartzenegger and Reagan had).
