Let's just pretend that Obama is a stealth Unitarian and be done with it.

But if he runs it means he's quitting as governor of LA wouldn't that piss off the state?

I just think that out of all the wild cards (young GOP, women), she was the most likely.

Picking Jindal makes no sense because he's only been at his job for half a year, etc.

I don't care for Palin's looks when Tina Fey already exists.  However, she is photogenic, young, female, and a reformer.  She will be seen as injecting new blood into American conservatism, and proof the GOP isn't exactly running Bob Dole Mk. II.  I really, really doubt that McCain can nget away with doing "business as usual" and picking Romney the establishment man.

Also, how is she supposed to be a terrible person?  The only possible source of outrage I can think of is over her thoughts about drilling for oil in Alaska and her stance on polar bears.

Jindal is too new, has only been working as governor for half a year, groom him for '12 as a Republican Obama, PICK PALIN IF YOU WANT NEW REFORMER DEMOGRAPHIC AAAAAH

Also- told you guys he'd pick before the RNC.  This elections breaking all the conventions, baby!

So was he expecting it to be a deadlock between the fearsome fighters of Tancredo, Duncan Hunter, and George Allen?
58  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: is it just me, or do all of the VPs suck? on: July 16, 2008, 03:45:57 am
Yeah, there's so many possibilities out there.
59  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Name one VP for McCain and one VP for Obama and see who gets both right on: July 05, 2008, 06:14:53 pm
Palin
Clark

Yeah, I went there.

Palin is a reformer, a conservative without seeming partisan, can at least claim to have more executive experience than Obama, has the possibility of siphoning off angry Clintonista feminist votes, and extremely photogenic.  She's not to be underestimated.

Her eldest son, Track, is in the Army and volunteered to serve in Iraq.  Between him and Jimmy McCain, I think the Republicans can use that to their advantage.

McCain chooses Gov. Sarah Palin (AK) for VP, but drops out of the candidacy because of health reasons.  Decide their veeps, and how will they perform?

The Reforms were effectively dead after Perot left and they were hijacked by all sorts of competing ideologues.

McCain chooses Gov. Sarah Palin (AK) for VP, but drops out of the candidacy in September because of health reasons.  Decide their veeps, and how will they perform?

The guy just saved another man's life, and is getting his own TV show coming soon on a cable network near you.  He'll be with us for a while.
65  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Bobby Jindal impact on South Asian Americans. on: June 16, 2008, 12:58:17 pm
Well, Sikhism, from what I understand, is a religion that's pretty much tied with the Punjabi ethnicity, whereas Christianity in India has a long history stretching from the St. Thomas/Syriac Christians, to those in Kerala or Goa who were converted by the Portuguese, to modern day evangelicals.  So naturally there'd be more Christians.  However, I've also read on BBC that not only Dalits turning to Christianity, but also Buddhism and possibly Islam(?), as they are religions that are more egalitarian in that they don't have caste systems.

I wonder if they'd consider a VP Carly Fiorina as a substitute Susan B. Anthony/MLK Jr. with ovaries.
67  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Bobby Jindal impact on South Asian Americans. on: June 16, 2008, 12:40:32 pm
There are actually more Christians in India than there are Sikhs.
68  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: How does John McCain best distance himself from GW Bush? on: June 15, 2008, 09:58:02 pm
I don't think he can.  He should repudiate the entire establishment that screwed him in 2000, and hit the Bush administration hard for incompetency, if not for their whole foreign policy.  But he can't win by selling those people down the river.

He's still popular among a majority of Republicans and is the sitting President.
Still?  That's sad.

Someone post comparison pictures.

Is he going to kick Ron Paul's ass for stealing his schtick?

Carol Moseley Braun was both, so she must have won.
72  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Presidential Power Rankings on: June 10, 2008, 06:11:42 pm
Anyone want to try to attempt a list like this for 2012 so we will have something to laugh at in between the peak oil riots, incessant war, and inevitable Mayan Apocalypto?

Great, they can campaign with Sophia Loren and Ann-Margret.

Ack.

The Huckabee Maneuver

June 09, 2008 7:05 AM

At the North Carolina GOP convention breakfast Saturday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee performed the Heimlich Maneuver on choking Lt. Governor candidate Robert Pittenger.

Huckabee, the keynote speaker, was sitting next to  Pittenger when he noticed the North Carolinian wasn't able to breathe. The former GOP presidential hopeful performed the Heimlich Maneuver on Pittenger, dislodging the obstructing foodstuff.

Huck tells ABC News it's the third time he's saved someone from choking using the Heimlich.

"I was trained as an EMT while in college and have had to use it before," he emails. "It's a very simple procedure that everyone ought to learn, especially if they have kids."

Not bad.  Sounds like he's got a life debt now.
