Posted: Updated:

Democratic consultant Tyler Jones with S.C. Forward Progress had a little fun at the Governor's expense Monday, launching IWantToBeVP.com. The parody website frames the governor's upcoming book release and the media appearances as proof of her efforts to get on the 2012 ticket.

"Haley knows she's not going to be VP," Jones said. "But she loves when the media ask her about it."

The governor's book tour, combined with the giddy media speculation over her possible veep nod, plays into a Democratic narrative of a governor not only out of touch with South Carolinians, but also spending too much time out of the state.

"It means she cares about her national ambitions more than about governing South Carolina," Jones said.
