An uncurious intellectual lightweight, nominated to run on the Republican ticket for Vice President of the United States of America.
A young politician consistently labeled as "far too inexperienced" to be a heartbeat away from the Oval Office.
A card-carrying far-right emblem, rallying red meat conservatives by virtue of their principles alone.
A pretty face, lightening the age-load of a Presidential candidate known as a war hero and an elder statesman.
A candidate that altogether ignores the other VP and issues direct, personal challenges to the Democratic presidential nominee.
A gigantic media distraction from the instant of their announcement.
A magnet for media criticism, drawing fire away from an "out of touch" running mate considered to be vastly removed from the economic plight of the average American.
Credited with a huge bump in the polls following the GOP convention, rallying the ticket from 15 points behind to a solid edge.
A seemingly dumb choice that worked exactly as planned.
