A Vice President For Rudy

Rudy Giuliani knows, much like the prescient Chris “Notorious BIG ” Wallace shortly before his death, that you’re nobody ‘til somebody kills you. Which is why, should the unthinkable happen, Giuliani’s going to need a ruthless Vice President to step into his shoes and get the justice that a grieving nation will demand.

Somebody like Cheney.

I would want a vice president who was a partner, someone who was in on everything that was going on, so that that person could take over if, God forbid, something happened, Mr. Giuliani said.

I have been very, very close to a possible presidential assassination and seen how that all worked out that day, Mr. Giuliani said in the ETV interview. He said the episode made him realize that as president, you have to pick someone that you believe can handle the job as well as you can.

Mr. Giuliani told ETV that Mr. Bushs selection of Mr. Cheney was a good model, calling it a good example of picking someone who is qualified to be president of the United States.

The 2008 presidential graveyard already has a fine list of potential running mates who would all make great presidents. Sam Brownback? Tommy Thompson? One term Virginia governor Jim Gilmore? He has the bonus of having run for the presidency without anyone having noticed, which negates the perception of past failure. Working against him, he continues to have the general demeanor of an iguana.

I agree with what the Oregon Attorney General said: Hell No!

(in regards to Satan-in-training Dick Cheney)

I can't think of a better way to lock up 2008 than a Giuliani-Cheney ticket on the other side.

God I wish I had written that.
