Veep Cheeping

Could anything be more utterly useless than the endless vapid speculative blathering about the vice presidential selection process? I have not seen anything which so completely displays the how totally clueless our news punditry is than this fever pitch of excitement over the pending selection of something once described as "a bucket of warm spit."

Actually Keith Olbermann of Countdown has stooped to a new low of vapidness, repeatedly bringing on his show as a consultant one Cris Kofinis, former Communications Director for the Edwards Campaign. Just what I have been breathlessly waiting for, political campaign expertise from a guy who ran a campaign that sank like a brick in a millpond.

Rachel Maddow has her own show starting early next month. It may be every bit as useless as the rest of these airheads, but it will be entertaining.

    "sank like a brick in a millpond"... is just fabulous. Anything out of the Edwards campaign is worthless IMHO, starting with the candidate himself.

    All the endless palaver about VP picks is BS from the news media trying to sell papers (or the electronic equivalent. why is it that sometimes the VP pick is better the the prez one?
