Your Next Vice President: John Edwards

Well, it’s official — John Kerry has selected John Edwards as his running mate. And if the “dream team” of Kerry and McCain ain’t gonna happen (and all the wishful thinking in the world wasn’t about to make it so), then I figure this is a pretty good alternative. In fact, before all the McCain-courting hullabaloo, I’d figured this was a foregone conclusion.

In other news, wanna hear something really scary? How’s this grab ya: Why don’t we train a bunch of poorly educated, overtly bigoted folks and put them in charge of identifying the terrorists? Well, like it or not, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Maybe a nice idea in theory (hey, Neighborhood Watch programs work, right?), but an absolute disaster in execution. America’s truck drivers — doing their part to keep them turban-wearing* “Islamics” off the streets. (“You can tell where they’re from. You can hear their accents. They’re not real clean people.”)

Thanks to Sid for the warning.

* Yes, I know turbans are more prevalent among Sikhs than Muslims. That’s the point: These are the yahoos serving as effectively deputized representatives of the U.S. of A.
