Virginia is abuzz over rumors that Gov.-elect Timothy M. Kaine could be asked to deliver the Democratic rebuttal to President Bush's State of the Union address.I doubt he can do worse than Washington Governor Gary Locke's pathetic response in 2003 or 2004's chimera response. (The 2005 response was so forgettable that I had to look up who did it.)
A Democratic aide involved in the selection process said yesterday the party has not yet asked anyone to deliver the rebuttal. The aide said Democrats are considering a host of options, including someone from the Gulf Coast who was affected by Hurricane Katrina and "people who made a difference in 2005."In case Kaine gets the gig, this warning should suffice: America, don't worry, the eyebrow is only on television. It is not going to eat you, but since you turned off the TV when the President finished you probably won't notice.
