Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for August 12, 2000
The Perfect Strategy. Bum: Yeah, Cheney is a terrible pick for the vice president nomination. But he's the perfect pik for what the republican's really have in mind. Look--the guy they wanted was Colin Powell. The democrats know that if it's Bush/Powell, they can just pack it in! But Powell has refused to campaign! He doesn't want to go through the media circus and the scrutiny on his beliefs and personal life! So! They strike a deal! G.W.'s main homeboy is the nominee! He goes through the grinder--Debating, answering to the press! Then, when the election's around the corner, oops! Cheney's got a health issue! Let's see--what patriotic American can step in at the last minute? It's foolproof! LOOK OUT FOR AN OCTOBER SURPR... Guy: So, this Cheney fella seems pretty good, huh?
