Woes of Beau

Woes of Beau

Thursday, November 20th 8:55pm Dear Diary, It’s been one day since Beau left for Iraq. I’ve tried to keep a level head about this, but I just get so upset that he’s over there for this war that should never have been started in the first place. It’s really tough knowing he’s over there in all that danger. I thought if I could get him a seat in the Senate by having him take my place, then he wouldn’t go at all. But that isn’t the case. Beau’s refused to take the Senate seat. He wants to be the attorney general instead. Breaks my heart though, to see him putting himself in danger. After all our family tragedies, I just want to enjoy the rest of my life with my sons alive. Wish I could work out a way for him to come home prematurely, since I’m Vice President, but I just don’t think that would look good to the public. I have to admit, it does look good to have a son serving for our country. Brings out that good ol’ fashioned Biden patriotism. Hey, that’s a good line! I’ll have to remember to use that in a speech… Until next time, Joe the Veep
