Who Cares About the Presumptive VP Nominee?
So Mitt Romney, clean-up hitter for the Republican Elephants in their upcoming play-off game with the Democrat Donkeys, has decided to put Wisconsinite Paul Ryan next in the batting line-up. Big deal. Nothing is likely to thrust the budget maven into the number one spot, unless Romney gets a message from above and abdicates. The vice-president is a political and governmental non-entity, suitable only as a focus of hatred (Dick Cheney) or comic relief (Joe Biden). The slot can't be too important, the nation has managed to survive after a fashion with the nitwit Biden occupying it and nobody seems to have major concerns that he'll ever be the big boss.
