The Office of the Vice President
Gail Collins takes a look at the various possibilities for this position and has some fun with them, something we all need after suffering through the 24/7 speculation these last weeks. She potshots all of them, but save her best lines for Judas Joe Lieberschmuck, "the Democratic vice presidential prick in 2000". She unloads her best one liners on the little man, like this
one politician who was the vice-presidential nominee for both parties. We would speak of it with awe, like that story about the two-headed turtle in Brooklyn.Or this
Lieberman is certainly capable of dumping everything he has ever believed in and assuring the anti-choice, anti-union, anti-government folk that he is on their team. But then the magic fades and all you’ve got is a conservative Republican who likes the environment teamed with a guy who will do anything to move up.Enjoy.
