Is America Ready for Governor Eyebrow?

The Washington Times reports:
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.
