Hear Brian Schweitzer LIVE Aug. 19 for 45 Minutes

This page is continually updating.

This is an easy post. Here is the link. Brian says why Montana zapped real ID. But there is more on his early life and general attitudes. And his being for Barack.

Barack goes to Billings next Tuesday — so we are told. [Or WERE told! Now I cannot access the story link –but it was there. I am listening to CNN and hearing nothing as apt as you will find, er, right here. I will leave the link in case it reactivates. Why was it taken down? Anyway, someone else agrees with me that Schweitzer could be the choice — and offers some more info on why. And here is at least a mention of Billings and Tuesday.]

Al Giordano suggested a week ago that Barack should announce veep next Wednesday.

How smart was that?

It may not happen and we will go on, as they say.

But it just might.

PS … The more I think about it, if this is even remotely correct, things will leak out more or less like this. No announcement tomorrow. BIG MSM story. It will be Saturday. No announcement Saturday. BIG MSM story. Sunday. Or. But by now it will have sunk in that Barack is going to Billings on Tuesday. Someone will reference Al’s piece of August 18.

Meanwhile the signups to hear the news will burgeon.

BUT — the media will all rush like lemmings to Montana. I can see Frank Zappa smiling in his grave. And gradually the Life of Brian will unfold, but since Brian is Brian they will have great trouble processing him. It will be a delight. And he will blow them off in one way or another. I can’t wait.

OK this is fiction. A fantasy. But isn’t it more interesting than another veep page filled with photos of the usual suspects?

LATER:

Biden had a family gathering at his home Thursday afternoon, with his wife Jill, niece Missy Owens and son Beau, Delaware’s attorney general coming and going past reporters staked outside. Biden ran errands, including a visit to the dentist, but didn’t speak to the media as he came and went.

Biden is a favorite for the vice presidential nomination among Democrats who think Obama could use his experience and tough campaign style. Biden has served 35 years in Congress, while Obama has served three. SOURCE

To which I say, And?
