Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer has responded to the vice-presidential speculation, according to the Associated Press:
HELENA - Gov. Brian Schweitzer said the only people pushing his name onto lists of potential vice presidential candidates are Internet bloggers with too much time on their hands, and he dismissed the speculation as "ridiculous."
Schweitzer said his name pops up only on a "very long list." The governor said "nut jobs" on the blogs are keeping his name alive. He said no one from the Obama campaign, or connected to it, has talked to him about the job.
"No one in the adult world is doing this," Schweitzer said.
Say what you will about Schweitzer as a possible running mate, but I think we can all agree that Internet bloggers who speculate on this stuff have too much time on their hands. Internet bloggers, by the way, are the worst kind of bloggers.
