Veepstakes is a term used to refer to the selection of a running mate for the presidential candidate. Potential running mates are vetted, asked a series of questionsÂ—about sex?! What does sex have to do with being Vice President of the United States? Well, not much unless you're the ethical and moral police of everyone's bedroom, also known as the Republican party.
GQ magazine's Jason Zengerle went through the veeping process with Washington D.C. attorney and 2008 McCain VP search aide, Ted Frank. Mr. Frank presumably doesn't have that great of a track record considering the VP selected for McCain was Sarah Palin. Regardless, see some of the questions Zengerle was asked below.
Do you have internet porn memberships?
Have you ever had a homosexual encounter?
Is there a sex tape?
Shouldn't the veepstakes questions be more business or economy centric? Afterall, Mitt Romney is a billionaire that can single-handedly bring back America's economy and leap over China in a single bound.
You can bet that the keepers of America's virtue will be doing an exhaustive search this time around. They don't want another Palin fiasco.
