McCain to Meet Prospective VPs AKA The Guy You’re Really Voting For

Vice President of the United States, Or in the Case of John McCain, the On Deck Circle

John McCain is to meet with three potential replacements running mates at his home in Arizona.

The International Herald Tribune reports that the short list includes:

Charlie Crist, Governor of Florida

Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana

Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts

All three will meet with McCain over the weekend, should the septuagenarian make it that long.

The timing is particularly interesting as McCain is expected to finally hand over his medical records to reporters. (see McCain Medical Records To Be Released Friday, Will He Make It Till Then?)

Hmmm, could it be that McCain is coinciding the release of his medical records with the naming of his future replacement running mate?

I can see the press conference now “The bad news, the melanoma is spreading and my brain is rotting from Alzheimer’s, the good news, I got young hot shot Bobby Jindal as back up, and at just 37, he’ll outlive Obama!”

What are in those medical files?? I’m willing to bet that this is not coincidental.

The timing is a little too perfect – right as a new round of questions about whether McCain will make it through the week is in good health… BAM, Republican strategists bolster his campaign with the Veep announcement – thereby sending the not so subtle message, “Nevermind the health problems, lets ride out the the last couple of good months left in McCain! Meanwhile, one of these young guys will get on the job training and be ready to take over in no time!”  Fear appeasement through decent replacement!

Stay tuned for a Veepstakes blog analyzing tweedle dee, tweedle dum, and tweedle mittevil. (should be this weekend)
