Ah, the veepstakes, that time-honored tradition. Not to be confused with Trump Steaks. Trump Steaks are a form of bull with a fancy label; veepstakes are the process whereby you designate someone else to put a fancy label on your bull.
The conventions are a mere two weeks away, and Donald Trump is just now getting around to naming his running mate - which, in Donald Trump's defense, is exactly when I would remember that I needed one, too.
(Ted Cruz already has one, but this is the kind of weird, obnoxious forethought that has failed to endear Ted Cruz to people over the years, like showing up at your ailing mother's bedside with a shovel.)
Word has leaked (someone ought to put word into a better container, as it seems to keep leaking) that both Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie are being vetted by the Trump campaign.
It makes sense that Christie is on this list. To get on this list, he had to kill a man (Marco Rubio) on live television.
