all the doom and gloom about the impending political Armageddon scheduled to impact Washington late on Nov. 2, President Obama and his Democratic Party of large congressional majorities got some unexpected good news this afternoon:
A new Pew Poll revealed that fully 41% of Americans can’t name the sitting vice president, whoever he or she is.
(SPOILER ALERT: That’s him in the photo on the right)
To quote a former senator, this is a big effing deal. With midterm elections just five weeks away, the fewer voters who can pick out any of the ruling D.C. D-crowd in a ballot line-up, the better.
The incumbent vice president, who has just 28 months left in that office, is the fellow who promised last summer that by now we’d finally have hundreds of thousands of new jobs being created every single month, thanks to all the stimulus spending that he promised was shovel-ready 19 months ago. He said nothing was more important to him and the co-worker he calls Barack than that three-letter word: J-O-B-S.
