Pick your fantasy GOP ticket!



Oh enough of this crowded Democratic field of candidates. It's over 300 days until the Iowa Caucus, fer crying out loud. (The photo above is from Prague, not Peoria. If the people of Peoria would just loosen up enough to allow sculpture like this, President Russ Feingold could end this war once and for all. Know what I mean?)

Who would be your fantasy pick for GOP nomination, though?

I was thinking Bolton, with Katherine Harris for vice. Oh, but Pammy at the Shrugging Map Book said Santorum was Presidential Material, but she could have been talking about that other definition of Santorum, not sure.

Wait... Dennis Hastert.

But some commenters at Crooks kinda got me with Lieberman. Way to excite the base with "bi-partisanship"!

There's just so much depth on the other side of the aisle, I'm tellin' ya.

  1. George Allen and Rick Santorum. Macaca and Man-on-Dog '08. Even Kerry could get elected over a couple of knobs like that.

  3. I think they should go with the dynamic young up and comer, paired with an elder statesman. It worked out so well for them last time.

    Tom Tancredo and James Dobson.

    This has the added attaction of being an all Colorado ticket

    So many choices... So few ethics, morals, etc. ...

    Tancredo and that Glichrist guy from The Misnomeredmen? Oh, heck, why not Tancredo and David Duke? That'd be more honest.

    Or Tancredo and Ted Nugent?

    How about Katherine Harris and Jean Schmidt? That'd be fun.

    And no, Kerry still couldn't beat any of these people. Which is another good reason for him not to run.

    And honestly, can we ban the term "bipartisanship"? Like, from all of our vocabularies? I know that it's not very Quakerly of me to say this, but, seriously, Bush didn't discover this word until he looked out over the room Tuesday night and maybe finally realized he was outnumbered. And now he wants to make nice?

    Nuh-uh.

    And honestly, can we eliminate the multiple posting of the same comment over and over by a very buggy Blogger?

    And that dopey Misnomeredman guy's name is spelled *Gilchrist." That WASN'T Blogger's fault...

  10. I think we could go obscure with an all-Georgia ticket: Sonny Purdue, the governor who thought it essential that a gay marriage ban go to the vote of the people but promises to veto a bill that would allow the people to vote on repealing the ban on Sunday alcohol sales, and Lynn Westmoreland, the idiotic GA congressman who wants to post the ten commandments everywhere but, when asked by Stephen Colbert, could only name three of them. Yeah, that would work.

  13. I'll double down on the two Dim Jims: James Inhofe and James Dobson. That would be comedy gold.

  14. Dear Husband goes with Alberto Gonzales and James Dobson. They could burn gays at the stake without the inconvenience of a trial.

  15. Allen/Santorum does sound good, but my dream GOP ticket would be Katherine Harris/Jean Schmidt. Go, Go, Girl Power!

    And then there's the rumour that Jeb-boy will throw his hat into the ring. No V-P job for him...

  17. How 'bout Reagan/Nixon? Then again, there are enough idiots still infatuated with these two that they could actually win. . .
