McCain VEEP Updates…
Â Could T-Paw make a good Veep… even without “the designs?”
Quote of the Week: “I want to help him become the president, because I think he’d be a great president,” MN Governor Tim Pawlenty said. “I don’t have any designs on being vice president. If somebody came to me and said that, of course I would be honored to be mentioned, honored to be asked, and it would be difficult to turn that down, but I don’t have any designs, and it’s not why I’m such a great and strong supporter of Senator McCain.”
Look, T-Paw — this isn’t fashion school. You don’t need designs. Do you think Papa Cheney got where he is today by following some planneagram? C’mon, he’d be sitting in Observatory Circle calling to see if President Bush took his vitamins today (rather than waging wars in foreign lands and participating in $1,000 photo opps) if that were the case!
Al Gore’s “Internet Invention” Helps McCain Find His VEEP!
Quote of the Week: “You know, basically it’s a Google,” McCain said at a fund-raising luncheon when asked how the selection process was going. “What you can find out now on the Internet — it’s remarkable.”
