While most of us will be spending the Memorial Day weekend vacationing at the beach, roasting weenies in the backyard, or watching Sweatin' to the Oldies Volumes One through Four, the 2008 Republican nominee for President, John McCain, will be accepting applications for the position of Vice-President.
Of course, if you believe the AP story, the only thing that will be going on at Casa de McCain is a great big barbecue. I wonder if anyone will be eating crow?
"It's purely social," said Mark Salter, a senior adviser to McCain.
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a McCain rival in the primary, were invited to a weekend gathering at the senator's place in Sedona.
Ah, the position of Vice-President: the Garfunkel to McCain's Simon, the Bill to McCain's Hillary, and the A.J. to McCain's rest of The Sopranos. Who in their right mind wouldn't want to be considered for the second most powerful job on earth? Okay, in today's political climate, the American Vice-President actually wields less power than the Speaker of the House, the governor of California, and Family Guy's Mayor of Quahog, Adam West, but it's still a pretty sweet gig.
