Where O Where will Dick Cheney Be?

Posted by Ryan on August 5, 2008

Word is buzzing that Dick Cheney may not be invited to speak at the Republican National Convention.  A sitting two-term Vice President has never been snubbed by the incumbent party’s convention that I can think of in modern times.  I know that if Cheney doesn’t go it’ll be spun as his “choice” to help McCain, but McCain’s people are probably spearheading the effort to snub him — McCain’s camp has not seemed to care about Conservative sympathies anyway.

Regardless, I know the McCain people are iffy about having the divisive liberal lightning rod, Dick Cheney, speak at the Convention, but c’mon! 

I suggest giving Cheney a spot introducing McCain on September 4!  I mean, no one is going to watch McCain’s acceptance speech since most Americans watching TV that night will catch the opening game of the 2008 NFL season as division rivals Washington Redskins play the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants instead! 

At this rate, I may be watching football too.

    Just when I think the McCain campaign is doing something right for once, they have to mess it up.

    It looks like there’s going to be a lot of DVRing going on the night of September 4. More bad planning by the McCain camp and the GOP.
