OMG, I wasn't expecting this. All of a sudden, we've got Condi Veep Rumors™ again! This time, seemingly out of the blue at Politico, it's former Democratic congressman Artur Davis of Alabama passing on an absolutely insane rumor, utterly and completely sourceless, that Romney's people are trying to recruit America's Princess Diplomat, Retired, to be Mitten's running mate.
I'm basically gasping for air as I type this. I hardly know where to start.
Can I get back to you on this? This one is going to take some unpacking. Meanwhile, you may wish to revisit vintage Condi Veep Rumors™ here and here and here and, most revealingly, here on PSP and here at Wonkette.
I'll write more about this, but *spoiler* I feel confident enough to say that this new Condi Veep Rumor™ will play out exactly like all the old Condi Veep Rumors™.
UPDATE: Recorded just four days ago on CBS News, is this an explicit enough denial for you? No?
