Which current Republican front-runner for the nomination will screw horrendously and lose an election and/or make a "macaca"-esque remark?

I'd say Jindal is fairly safe, at least on the macaca front.  Palin won't lose re-election and Romney isn't running for anything.  Who else are the frontrunners at this point?

I think we've already seen it with Mark Sanford's freeze-up in a television interview when he couldn't identify any differences between McCain and Bush.  Though I'm not sure if Sanford ever really wanted to make a run.

Non-white people can make racially unfortunate remarks, too.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Um I think its a pretty safe bet a macaca comment will not be forthcoming from him

Well, did Romney learn from his "Who let the dogs out" phoniness?

He could still use the word macaca, it's just that he'd just look silly.

Just like when someone just uses the word "just" too many times in a sentence.

I can see Jindal as being anti-semitic.

13 Then people brought little children to him, for him to lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples scolded them,

14 but Jesus said, 'Let the little children alone, and do not stop them from coming to me; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of Heaven belongs.'

15 Then he laid his hands on them and went on his way.
