Maybe this wasn't a good idea after all.......

I know that regular readers of the Warren (are there any?) are wondering what the Great El-ahrairah has to say about John "Flip-Flop" Kerry's choice of John "Ambulance Chaser" Edwards for Vice President. Bigwig over at Siflay Hraka has already blogged about how this is a good thing for Senator Gigolo. His reasons are pretty good why this would be a good thing, however, I tend to think that it may come back to bite Senator Gigolo in the end.

1. Experience. As illustrated by the President when asked what the difference between Dick Cheney and Ambulance Chaser, the President retorted "Dick Cheney can be president. Next?" Just as many people on the left criticised Bush I for his choice of Dan Quayle as vice president as being too "inexperienced" to be president if required, the President has already shown that this may become a issue for the right.

2. Former Employment. Before "Ambulance Chaser" Edwards became a US Senator, he was a trial lawyer who made his money off multi-million dollar trial awards against the medical industy. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most respected and 1 being the least respected, most Americans rank trial lawyers around 1, either below or equal to used car salesmen. Senator Gigolo's choice of Ambulance Chaser will enable the President to paint them both as obstructionists to affordable healthcare. Expect the Bush campaign to trot out statistics about doctors leaving the practice because they cannot pay their malpractice insurance premiums.

3. Former critisicms. Senator Gigolo criticised Ambulance Chaser during the Primary campaign as not having the experience required to be president. Expect for these criticisms to come back in GOP TV commercials.

4. Wealth. Both Senator Gigolo and Ambulance Chaser are very, very wealthy. Ambulance Chaser made all his wealth by large jury awards. Expect for this to come many times during the campaign to show just how out of touch the two really are with the middle class in America.

5. Senate. Ambulance Chaser sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and already, the President has criticised him for holding up his judicial appointments. Expect this to become an issue during the election.

The Great El-ahrairah feels that the choice of "Ambulance Chaser" Edwards brings more negatives than positives to the Senator Flip-Flop ticket. Right now, the Democrats are fat, dumb and happy (sounds like Mikey Moore) about the choice. Wait until the real election season starts to see how this pans out.
