I rather expect they're not going to have the "real" candidate's name public until they're good and ready, and there's less time for the durned libruls to pull up every moronic thing they've ever said on YouTube.

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Given that they'd find it all between the primary and the general election anyway, I think the opposite strategy is in order.  Get that shit out into the open early, so you don't get blindsided (the way Palin was).

Naw.  The last election proved that they aren't capable of vetting, let alone keeping their fat mouths shut.

That would, indeed, be the intelligent way to do things.  Dunno if they're going to play it smart.

(Point of order:  Palin wasn't blindsided, SHE knew all the crap that was out there, if not that it would hit the papers.  McCain and the GoP were the ones blindsided.)

Naw.  The last election proved that they aren't capable of vetting, let alone keeping their fat mouths shut.

If we were dealing with rational humans, I'd say they'd learn from experience.  We are, however, dealing with a party bowing to teabaggers, so... who knows.

I actually think Christie would have a fairly decent shot at beating Obama and if there is any un-declared candidate keeping the Obama re-election campaign up at night, it's him.  Obama will easily handle any of the other morons being considered, including Romney. 

Please to understand I'm not saying I would WANT Christie to win.  Just observing that he seems to have the most broad appeal compared to the others.

Pun unintended.

Last I heard, a couple weeks ago, he was saying he had NO intention of running.

I heard the same.

Also, he'd never get through the primaries-- when you have to appeal to the base, having ideas the general majority agree with tends to be a bad thing.

What Im wondering is if Obama will be able to pull off as much of a win.

Obamas core voters were young college kids who bought into "hope" and "change". Now that he hasnt delivered on that I wonder if hell be able to rally enough voters, or if perhaps some of those same people who voted for him will be so disillusioned that they vote against him (kind of like the Hilary voters for McCain thing). Of course that depends on the GOP producing a candidate that isnt too batshit to vote for (Not Likely).

At this point, I'm giving it a 50/50 chance.  It really depends on who goes to the polls.


Let's face it; most people's politics don't change.  The goal of a candidate isn't to convince people that they have the best ideas, it's convincing the people to go out and vote.

For which Palin was excellent.  She got MY ass into the voting booth, all right.

1.  Performance has nothing to do with elections.

2.  The GOP will run the nuttiest fucker they can find.  They no longer have a choice.

Their base is split so deeply that I'm betting we'll see two GoP candidates tearing each others throats out on national TV, with one of them running as a teabagger/independent and the other with the official GoP hat on.

The GOP has bought the fallacy that the Dems swallowed, with some cosmetic differences.

Just so long as they're entertaining.

I'd like to see some of the questions from 2008 brought back, like: "Do you agree with evolutionary theory, do you believe human contribute to greenhouse gases," etc.
