Parity! Pairty! Paradi!
Fair is fair. With the Republican Chick Little McCain singing out about the “Global Warming sky falling” we need to bring some balance to the forced. Meaning that Obama isn’t foolish enough. He has the Liberal Litany down, can be somber or funny, is a better speaker than bowler…but he’s a dud. Supposedly he’s all flash and no substance, but if you really look at his career with a critical eye, there’s no flash, either.
A dud, not a dude ready to take on the most important job in the world.
Enter, stage left, Al Franken. Al has the flash, and would make a great Costello to Barack’s Abbott.
Think about it: Al is nationally known, is so far to the left that he makes Obama look Moderate, yet so inexperienced in government that Barry O is an elder Statesman by comparison.
Al also is not tainted by being a “Washington Insider” at a time when Obama is threatening to re-create Washington in “Our Own Image”-casting the ‘inside the beltway’ lifers and lobbyists into the outer darkness, where there will be wailing and gnashing of special interests.
I think Obama had better snatch up Franken for Veep…before McCain does.
