Don't look at that moldering Bain in the window, we've got a shiny new V.P. choice that is far more interesting!

According to a N.Y. Times article, Mitt has made his choice (and if emphasis is any guide, by "choice" they mean "Pawlenty") and may announce it this week.  

Of course, this has nothing to do with stemming the Bain Bleeding, but since you mention it, Mr. Romney, there is a question we'd love to ask your VP choice:

How many years of tax returns did your pick have to submit in the vetting process?

Of course, to expand on a comment I made earlier this week, I actually think Romney's choices are a little restricted now. We can cross off:

(after the NAACP speech) a politician from any state with a significant black population

(after Obama's ICE directive) a politician from any state with a significant latino population

(after the Bain controversy) a politician from any state where the voters frown upon perjury on state filings or sending all their jobs to East Slobobia.

(after the next poll numbers) a politician from any state where a politician wants a future

Hey Tim Pawlenty JAN BREWER! Yer lookin' good!

Oh wait.

Wow, just thinking about makes me totally forget about Mitt's very bad, horrible week.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
