Dick Cheney, shown here during happier times, just endorsed John McCain for President.
Is this the "October surprise" I've been worried about? Is McCain thrilled to have the Cheney juggernaut of voter disapproval attached to his campaign? What, was Montgomery Burns unavailable for a stump speech guest appearance?
You won't see President Bush out there campaigning for his "good friend" John McCain. He'll be sequestered in the White House panic room with a gross of Zesty Ranch Pork Rinds until the election is over, lest undecided voters see him butcher the English language on C-Span and cast their lots with Obama.
I have an idea that I think the Dems should run with: Unleash a small army of George Bush impersonators across all the swing states and have each of them deliver campaign speeches for John McCain.
"Senator McCain couldn't be here today, because he's busy in what he likes to call 'a real state'. You see, John McCain thinks there are two many inbred morons in these parts, so he sent me to talk to you. And I'm here to tell you that a vote for McCain is a vote for my third term."
I should run political campaigns.
