BREAKING: Novak reports McCain will tab Veep this week

Bob Novak tells the world that his sources tell him that John McCain will pick his Veep this week. The reasoning? He wants to take some of the press away from Obama’s foreign adventures.

Novak will give no names, but he points out that “Mitt Romney has led the speculation recently.” If the campaign wants to steal some of Barry’s thunder, Romney is not the man to do it. McCain’s pick will have to be exciting in some way: a woman, a minority, an Independent-Democrat. Or a beloved public action-figure, like, say Charlie Crist. Yeah, right. Try Rudy, with whom McCain attended Sunday afternoon’s New York Yankees victory over the Oakland Athletics.

With how many grains of whose salt do we take this?
