It was a visiably shaken Smokey Diamond that left Elizabeth Warren’s mansion in Cambridge this morning. She would only say, “there is no possibility that Cousin Myron will be the Warren’s Vice Presidential running mate in 2016.”
Later, we got the rest of the story from an anonymous source within the Warren campaign. “Sure, we like Cousin Myron’s politics– what liberal wouldn’t. But the man has a documented habit of tossing waiters and waitresses through plate glass windows, with only a tiny provocation. Why not just leave a bad tip? The man has quite a temper.
“But, I think that Warren is quite taken with Smokey. Elizabeth called her “brilliant in a furry sort of way.” There is no doubt about the chemistry between them and I feel that Smokey is quite high up on the short list for running mate.”
