I really wasn't going to blog about politics today. Just because last night I watched the equivalent of "I Have a Dream" or "Ask not what your country can do for you" of my lifetime, I was still willing to just let it simmer a day or two. Then McCain tapped his Vice. My initial thoughts were--"wow, smart pick." He's more or less guaranteed he'll pick up some of the idiots from the last post (or secure them). She also lends him a hint of lost Maverick, and an air of change. Then I read this:
Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s “Kudlow & Co.” asked her about the possibility of becoming McCain ticket mate. Palin replied: “[A]s for that V.P. talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the V.P. does every day?"
So let me get this straight.....you're qualified for the position, but one month ago, you didn't know what the responsibilities were? I'm sure that quote won't make its way into any Obama/Biden ads (eye rolls). Someone already coined the term McCain/Palin, Trophy Wife/Trophy Vice '08.
More on this later. I have a lot to say of the revelations of the last few days. Football is less work right now. I intend to pick this year's playoff contenders and Super Bowl Champion. To be successful at such a feat, one must be very good at picking names of teams at random from a hat. First, your 2008 Division Winners:
Drum roll please. Ladies and Gentlemen, J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS. Can you believe it? me neither.
AFC WILD CARDS
San Diego Chargers
Let the insults ensue. Not only did the Jets win the east, the Pats missed the playoffs. Suck it, Tom Brady.
Now, on the the AFC Punching Bags...errr...the NFC.
Dallas Cowboys (See, they aren't all shockers).
Arizona Cardinals (Just most of them)
New Orleans Saints
NFC WILD CARDS
So who's in the big game, you ask? From the NFC, the Minnesota Vikings. From the AFC? Woof. Tough call. I'll go with the Broncos. And this year's super bowl winner (determined by the flip of a nearby nickel) is...............
The Denver Broncos. Congrats, Shanahan, Cutler, and the rest of the team.
OH! I almost forgot! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHN MCCAIN! He's looking quite spry for 72 years young. Anyone know what the average male human life expectancy is off the top of their heads? What happens if he dies before the election?
One last edit. For anyone interested in reading a well-respected economist brutally rape and sodomize John McCain's economic position and promises, have a look at what Clive Cook had to say in his article today.
Hat tip to www.electoral-vote.com for alerting me to it.
