Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, October 05, 2021

The front-runners have had their fun for now, so it’s time an interlude: Their running mates get down at Case Western Reserve University tonight.

The Vice-Presidential round always has potential for fireworks. The most noteworthy example would have to be the Lloyd Bentsen “You’re no Jack Kennedy” zinger, directed at Dan Quayle during their debate in 1988. The veeps, by nature, have the prerogative to be a bit looser. Despite all the touting of voting for a ticket that will represent some sort of Presidential “team” in the White House, everyone knows that the VP is essentially a spare wheel (regardless of your suspicions regarding Dick Cheney’s level of influence in this administration). So they’re not expected to stay above the fray — quite the opposite, they’re supposed to take on the role of junkyard dog.

So I’m crossing my fingers on tonight. I’m hoping that Cheney will get exasperated by Edwards and start cursing him out. Barring that, I’ll settle for a massive coronary.
