Ooops, one I forgot, same source Advice to Ryan or any VP
"Do not go out there and compare yourself to Jack Kennedy. It never goes well.
"Don't use a tragic car accident as an example, in a debate with an opponent who lost his wife and daughter in a tragic car accident. People will think that either you don't know enough not to mention it, or that you don't care. Neither is good.
"Don't bad mouth the stimulus, if you sent your opponent two letters requesting stimulus dollars for your district. He might remember how that stimulus you called "wasteful" helped save your hometown. Worse, he could be smart enough to bring those letters with him.
"Don't talk about "privatizing" Social Security. We need Florida to win, dammit. We can't even send you down there now."
I missed the car accident moment. Ya gotta give Biden credit for not punching him in the mouth. I would have, but we all know I'm too old to care what people think.
And James, I hope he lives to be 100 too. I've always liked him, and that's saying something about a pol. And I understood his gaffes, because I have the same problem, I get 3/4 of the way through a thought, figure anybody would understand the rest, so I move on to the next thought. It's like Bridge (the card game) you get to a point and you say, and "And the rest are mine" or "It's a lay down" and put down your cards. My wife never understood that, and would make me play the most obvious hands to the very last card. She just never got it, Or family economics. Good thing neither matters when she's 3 feet up somebody's bowel removing a polyp or ink marking a section of diseased bowel for resection the next day.
Never been sued. Not once. She used to come home and cry when something went wrong, but never been sued or even discussed in weekly reviews. (And trust me on this, every endoscopist has perforated a patient's bowel at least once with the scope, requiring emergency surgical repair. Even one with the hands of a concert violinist.)
