Darth and Dear Leader to take the stage on first night of GOP convention
I’m sure this breaking news is giving McCain agita — won’t it be beautiful to see The Base cheering Bush and Cheney, the masters of disaster stepping into the spotlight in Minneapolis!
Vice President Cheney will speak at the Republican convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul on the same day as President Bush, contrary to reports earlier in the week that he was not seeking a slot at the gathering, officials said today.
“The Vice President looks forward to participating in the Republican National Convention and continuing to work for the election of Senator McCain and other Republican candidates in the coming months,” Cheney spokeswoman Megan Mitchell said.
…Under the plans announced today, Cheney would speak on Sept. 1, the same day that President Bush is scheduled to deliver a nighttime address. First Lady Laura Bush will also give her own short address that night, but she will not introduce her husband, White House officials have said. Mitchell said the time of Cheney’s appearance remains to be decided.
Even Laura doesn’t want to be on the same stage with the guy – who do you think will do the introduction? Holy Joe, lol?
There is also no word on whether the Arizona senator will sidle up to the Dark Lord or warmongerer in chief on stage.
