Democratic Turkeys and Perriello's Toying with "The Gore Effect"

Smokin’ Joe Biden swings through Chuck Robb’s living room to raise money for Democratic Reps. Glenn Nye, Gerry Connolly and Tom Perriello. Along the way the Vice President says:

“These guys are smart. Some of the guys Chuck (Robb) and I have campaigned for are turkeys,” he said. “Not all Democrats are created equal, while most Republicans are.”…

Okay.

So Tom, Gerry and Glenn aren’t turkeys (but may resemble some other sort of flightless bird — emus, perhaps?). But plenty of other Democrats are. I’m sure they all feel the same about vice presidents.

Note, too, that another of these unequal Democratic veeps, Al Gore, has been beating the fundraising bushes for Perriello, because Tom is so gosh-darned concerned about global warming.

The good thing for Perriello is that Gore didn’t make a personal appearance. Otherwise The Gore Effect might have resulted in an unusual September ice storm in Charlottesville.
