Gymglish’s Guide to the 2020 US elections

Today, focus on: VEEP.

Definition: ‘VEEP’ (also Vee-Pee or VP): The nickname given to the Vice President of the US, or any other Vice President.

The Veep serves as a deputy to the President, and is second in the line of succession. The current Veep is former Indiana Governor Mike Pence, the Democratic candidate for VEEP is California Senator Kamala Harris.

Unbiased opinions:

Lefty says: “The Veep’s job is to support the President. Shake some hands, kiss some babies, don’t spread COVID. She should be young and healthy, because let’s be honest, our dude this year is pretty old.?

Righty says: “The Veep’s job is to support the President. Shake some hands, kiss some babies, don’t spread COVID. He should be white and healthy, because let’s be honest, our dude this year is pretty old.”





About our (fictive) correspondents:

Arthur ‘Lefty’ Treehugger, Founder, Ponchos Illustrated. Born and raised on a pumpkin collective in rural Vermont, Arthur Treehugger grew up in the warm glow of free love, improvised guitar circles and herbal remedies. Arthur’s true passion is Ponchos, and his self-published e-magazine magazine is the number two poncho and raincoat magazine in the US, with a daily circulation of nearly 300. 

Politically, Arthur is the definition of liberal;  a true ‘bleeding heart’. Arthur is left-handed, left-brained and only turns left at stop signs.

Walton ‘Righty’ Carmichael Jr, Editor, Death & Taxes Quarterly. Deep in the heart of Georgia, land of peaches and voter suppression, the Carmichael Family has raised 7 seven generations of true American Patriots, culminating with Walton Jr. He abides by the guiding principles of family, fishing, freedom and God. His self-published e-magazine, “Death and Taxes” presents a libertarian view on today’s world.

A libertarian-leaning conservative, Walton identifies with the right wing of today’s GOP and would very much like to make and/or keep America great.
