I love how the GOP is so starved of leadership that Sarah Palin has a chance for the GOP ticket.

It could work.  The GOP has essentially purged everyone who isn't a far right Christian with this election.  Huckabee likes doing things for the poor so he's out.  Romney has the economic appeal to the GOP but he's a filthy Mormon and while I'm sure they're happy that his people will nullify homo marriage in CA, again, the GOP has purged everyone who might be an outlier and Romney is an outlier.  He also governed an Unamerican state that went for Osama bin Barack in 2008.  Fred Thompson?  Negro please.

Maybe there will be an ambitious up and comer that might be willing to play ball.  Palin would be disastrous for the GOP and despite their nuttery, deep down, a lot of them know how stupid and shitty she is.

Mitt: I thank the lord and my wonderful family, my wonderful wife. Family means one man and one woman -
Huck: One woman?
*crowd laughs/applause*
Ginrich: Marriage is sacred
Palin: You darn betcha it is. Marriage is sacred and you know, adultery is a danger to that union
Gulianni: I agree with Governor Palin, which is why I've spent many nights praying about my own marriage
Huck: Which one?
*crowd laughs/applause*

Huck 2012

He wouldn't even survive the primaries.  Even if he did have the ideas and the talk, one of the other candidates would bang the good ol' FAMILY VALUES drum and Gingrich would circle the drain.

Agreed.  Newt's time was the mid 90s.  He's irrelevant, now just writing Amazon.com reviews and the occasional Fox News appearance.

man, SD pulling out mid 90s Rush Limbaugh boner fantasies is pretty awesome.

Between the Falcons having a winning record and a black man becoming president his worldview is collapsing

The Newsweek story is great so far (I'm into chapter 2 now).

i'm going to dig out my bloom county book which features Milo and his grandfather hunting for the elusive Liberal and put it online

the hunting call is "no nukes, no nukes"

"Socialized medicine!"  I remember a girl in middle school who was digging a Bloom County compilation I brought in until she read that one.

But let's stop making fun of siamesedreamer.  He has such a solid record of picking saviors.

Can I just say I'd love love love to see Gingrich run?

I think he'd have a very good shot at the nomination.  If you think Republicans will sink a candidate they otherwise love because of some non-gay sex thing, you're way underestimating their capacity for cognitive dissonance.

He'd get absolutely slaughtered in the general.  Along with Goldwater's thumping at the hands of LBJ it would provide bookends to the newly dead conservative revolution.





PS Newt's intellect and wonkishness are completely overrated.  He's an idiot's image of a smart person.

So what GOP member is viable for 2012?

Three more years until George Prescott Bush can legally run.

So fucking true. 


I cannot believe for a moment that anyone would think that he would stand a chance.  If that is what passes for intellect in the Republican party the Dems will have control for the entire 21st century.

The GOP has long since purged their intelligent members.  The fact that Newt is hanging around with them is a good sign that he isn't as smart as people make him out to be.

Sarah Palin is the child of Nixonian politics and represents the new generation of Republicans.  The audience responses to McCain's concession speech are telling

republicans in 4 years:

"well i guess obama wasn't a real liberal or democrat, because things are good"

OR

"clearly we were saved by our brave senate and house minority heroes"

Quote
-- McCain also was reluctant to use Obama's incendiary pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright as a campaign issue. He had set firm boundaries: no Jeremiah Wright; no attacking Michelle Obama; no attacking Obama for not serving in the military. McCain balked at an ad using images of children that suggested that Obama might not protect them from terrorism; Schmidt vetoed ads suggesting that Obama was soft on crime (no Willie Hortons); and before word even got to McCain, Schmidt and Salter scuttled a "celebrity" ad of Obama dancing with talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres (the sight of a black man dancing with a lesbian was deemed too provocative).

wow @ his campaign advisors

partial :bow @mccain.  too bad he didn't uphold his ideals Completely, but at the least he is more a man than many of his slime colleagues

Quote
-- The debates unnerved both candidates. When he was preparing for the Democratic primary debates, Obama was recorded saying, "I don't consider this to be a good format for me, which makes me more cautious. I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, 'You know, this is a stupid question, but let me ... answer it.' So when Brian Williams is asking me about what's a personal thing that you've done [that's green], and I say, you know, 'Well, I planted a bunch of trees.' And he says, 'I'm talking about personal.' What I'm thinking in my head is, 'Well, the truth is, Brian, we can't solve global warming because I f---ing changed light bulbs in my house. It's because of something collective'."

You know, despite the nasty campaign, I find it difficult to stay upset with McCain.  I can't really explain it.  Actually, it probably has everything to do with Sarah Palin.

South Park was awesome. One of the best ones I've seen, really lighthearted, no completely random weirdness or anything, and pretty funny parody of the Ocean's movie. I'm not sure what was pro liberal about it, other that McCain supporters thinking the sky is falling (which is accurate from everything I've seen lately) and that the fake Palin acting dumb on stage, also accurate. Great episode.

him and huck are my most likeable of US politicians.  yes, out of all politicians, save a few like the obvious obama, these two area really likeable to me.  I wish they were my uncle(s).

but not my father.

You know, I like Huck, too, although I'd be terrified if he were anywhere near office.  Maybe it's the same thing with McCain, but having a healthy sense of humor about yourself goes a long way towards making me think you're pretty cool, and both McCain and Huck have displayed this trait.

I actually think North Carolina was the most surprising.

This is a place that voted Jesse Helms in four times and then Elizabeth Dole.  I haven't forgotten the 1990 advertisement he ran against Harvey Gantt.
