You all know I’m a relentless gossip about the Veepstakes, which is sadly diminished this year from last cycle by 50% because Uncle Joe went all Super-Ghey on Barack, making it impossible to kick him out of his Observatory Circle digs without incurring the wrath of and enraging the Lavender Dems, David Geffen and other wealthy Gays Who Bundle (heh).

But the GOP Veepstakes are rich this year.
