I'm more likely to be hit by an asteroid

The 97 members of the Senate not running for President, were asked by The Hill "If you were asked, would you accept an offer to be the VP nominee?"

Here are some of the better replies.

Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) "Of course. Big house, big car, not much to do. Why not?"
Sounds like a cushy job to me too.

However

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) "No. I don't like going to funerals."
Yes I would find that aspect of the job depressing.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) "I plan to stick with my current job until I get the hang of it."
When will that be? I'll leave Wizbang readers to make further wisecracks.
Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) "I'd say, 'Please read the Constitution.' I wasn't born in America; I can't be VP."
How dare the constitution discriminate against immigrants!(Sarcastic laughter time)
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) "My name has been discussed partly because I'm a female and it's always nice to balance things in gender ... I've discussed it with my kids. My 16-year-old thinks it's a fabulous idea because he thinks we probably couldn't find any better residence in Washington, D.C., than the Naval Observatory. That's the fun part of the question, but I think anybody, if you were seriously asked, I think you have to give it very real and genuine consideration. I don't expect to be asked, but if I were I would give it real and genuine consideration."
Only way you'll get made VP is by being appointed by your Daddy.
Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) "I would say 'No, Hillary.' "
Even Hilliary isn't that crazy.
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) "I'm not the right choice for the Democrats because they're going to carry California. So they should really look elsewhere. And I can really help them right here in the Senate as chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee."
Translation- She prefers to shovel pork barrel projects to Californians in order to get re-elected.
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) "If I were asked, I would say, 'You're out of your mind.' "
I admire a person who knows their limitations. Except if they're an elected official.
Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) "Does that include any sports picks or anything like that? ... I would certainly consider it."
I'm still trying to understand what Cantwell could possibly be talking about. Can someone clue me in?

Oh and the asteroid quote comes from...................

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) "The chances of that are so remote that I'm more likely to be hit by an asteroid."
Senator are you insured against falling exterrestrial objects? Oh, never mind......

Hat tip- Below the Beltway

Being from CantDoAnythingWell's state, all I can say is, "No, sorry, we never know what she's talking about, either." Must be a liberal disease we have here in the NW.

Actually, he does not have much spare time on his hands.
Driver's education classes, AA meetings, and weight-watcher's consumes all his time.
