Can a Viking be VP?
I’ll give the McCain campaign much credit, they can play us all like a fiddle. Sure, we’re all buzzing about Sarah Palin’s gender today, but tomorrow you’ll realize the implications of the decision made on golden pond.
Your next Vice-President could be a Viking.
We may never know what God-fearing township she conquered with her merry band of clansmen, but the looks on the faces of the people behind them document their terror. The drunken anarchy won’t end there, as this pick will clearly influence other countries in regards to wenches, mead, and international shipping routes.
John McCain has assured us that this will bring us closer to our ideological friends in NATO, particularly the Geats (Denmark?) and the Vandals (Germany?). Perhaps, but John needs to know that once the Normans and Franks understand the implications we’ll have another international crisis on our hands. History shows us that a Viking so close to power will force the rise of centralized authority and the development of more robust coastal defenses. We can’t enact a working Star Wars, can we now afford Shore Wars?
I applaud Mr. McCain for his derring-do in regards to a female VP candidate in the Republican Party. But a Viking, sir? And you, a Pict? For shame.
