Well, if you’re gonna pick someone to be your Vice-President, it should always be someone dumber than you. I think Tim Kaine fits that bill nicely.
Virgina Governor Tim Kaine, my candidate in the Obama Veepstakes Pool, says it was Obama’s intervention that lead to a cease fire between Russia and Georgia.
“It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in. And I’m very, very happy that the Senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.”
This will of course come as news to French President Nicholas Sarkozy who actually flew to Moscow to talk to the Russians. (H/T – Ace of Spades)
First of all, I am not exactly sure this cease fire will hold – if there is even a cease fire, since reports are sketchy at best. Second of all, if anyone thinks that Putin agreed to a cease fire with Georgia because Obama recommended it – without even talking to Putin, by the way – well, I am taking orders for straitjackets.
Send me an e-mail with your sizing instructions, and I’ll ship one out to you, post haste.
