What Sucks...John Edwards, Vice Presidents And Prospective Vice Presidents!
Used to be I thought the hardest job in America to fill was the position of NFL “long snapper”. There were clearly more jobs than qualified people to fill them, and at one point, I’m pretty sure a guy long snapped for two teams at the same time. I could be wrong about that but the point is…
Not anymore! Clearly, the hardest job to fill, is that of “Vice President Who Is Seemingly Not a Douchebag”. This of course assumes that when looking for a Vice President, you are NOT, on purpose, looking to hire a douche.
This John Edwards thing just puts it over the top. Edwards’ recent admission to being the dad of a baby whose paternity he’s repeatedly denied- and tried to attribute to a buddy of his no less- is such an egregiously scumbaggish thing to do it would make Spiro Agnew proud. Throw in the fact that there may be a sex-tape involved, and well, we’re talking scumbaggery in the league of its own.
Think about how comfortable are we all with Joe Biden? Personally, I’m okay with it, but I’m not doing back flips at the idea of this dude being a heartbeat away from the Presidency, as a matter of fact, I think he was chosen to dissuade would-be assassins, but that’s another story. (A recent FBI intercepted phone call from a noted militia group- SHADOWY UNDERWORLD TYPE: Okay…we’ll get him (Biden) too…oh wait, Pelosi’s next? What am I, running a ninja-assassin school? Forget it!”)
But compared to the people who used to or could have had his job, we’re all on easy street, at least when this a-hole accidentally hits the button, it won’t be because he’s trying to distract everyone from his secret family!
Take a look at the parade of douchebags that were run by us just in the last ten years! In 2000 Dick Cheney was the VP, and we know what an animal he is. If he wasn’t the VP it would have been Joe Lieberman, who, incredible as it sounds, could have been worse! In 2004, John Kerry chose John Edwards. See above and also see the fact that this guy cheated on his wife while she was battling the cancer! Then of course, in 2008, we get Sarah Palin.
What does the future hold? Who can possibly keep this trend of bigger and bigger losers being nominated as VP’s going? After Liberman, Edwards, and Palin- is Ben Linus from Lost next? Which reminds me of two things- I don’t have a way of ending this blog entry- and Lost is on once again tomorrow!
