How Republicons Pick a VP Candidate

From the NY Times Magazine, via Digby, comes an inside look at the "thinking" involved when Republicons choose a vice president:

A friend had said to [McCain campaign manager Rick] Davis: “The way you pick a vice president is, you get a frame of Time magazine, and you put the pictures of the people in that frame. You look at who fits that frame best — that’s your V. P.”
This, my darlings, is the lavish care and attention Republicons pay to good government and doing right by America. This is how they put "country first."

Go. Vote. Destroy.

Granted, it's not a TIME cover, but my point is valid.
