Yea, the VP's politics doesn't seem like it would mesh well with Wayne Palmer's. I remember that the show said earlier that the VP dude was chosen as Palmer's running mate because he would reassure voters that some experience would be included. It could be that the two do agree on everything except national security, I suppose. Nuke going off in LA would have been out of left field too and could have polarized the two.
Anyways, if I was a VP with an itchy trigger finger who just receiver presidential powers, I would probably order that guy with the nuclear suitcase over and shoot a nuke off that way. Much more satisfying to press the button yourself, rather than order an admiral to order a submarine to launch one little cruise missile. I'd have that "Ride of the Valkyries" song blasting on the sound system too.
The cake is a lie.
