wwwDURST: Ross Perot -- Why is he here?

Who is he? Why is he here? Ross Perot reached into his bag of tricks and pulled out another Vice Presidential candidate with qualifications that would be considered underwhelming for a unincorporated county councilman race.It's Pat! Of course the little guy was turned down more often than a freshman nerd at the Senior Ball. He must have asked three or four thousand elected officials before settling for Pat Choate, an economist whose isolationist theories include hiding behind a thick wall of bundled sticks and throwing sharp rocks at people who wear different clothes. Choate (who's name rhymes with choate) is co author with Ross Perot of a book lambasting NAFTA called Save Your Job, Save Our Country. And now the two of them are in a position to write another book called Save Your Job, Save Our Country, Save Your Vote, Because We Don't Have The Chance Of A Blind Lame Rabbit In A Blood Soaked Wolverine Pen.Choate predicted that he and Perot would be in second place in the polls behind Clinton/Gore by mid-October, proving that he belongs on the ticket with Perot since they share a reasoning process. Absurd, spiced liberally with the fantastic.Will Durst wonders if these two will get even their own votes.
