Blunt-Boehner 2012: The GOP Dream Ticket

I note with some amusement that Huckleberry Huckabee won by a wide margin the straw poll at the so-called Values Voter Summit this weekend.

This sets up what many in the wingnuttery see as a GOP "dream ticket" for 2012: Huckabee and Palin.

Actually that's not a bad team for them to front: Those two just happen to be the most Religious-Right fundo-annointed wackjob candidates that they could possibly come up with.

And two of the most easily-defeatable candidates that the Dems could possibly confront.

But all that aside, I have another suggestion for the Rethugs:

Missouri's Roy Blunt and Ohio's John Boehner* are both good foot soldiers in the GOP. As a former GOP senator Roman Hruska said in a different context (the attempt by Tricky Dick Nixon to elevate G. Harrold Carswell to the Supreme Court), "...there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they, and a little chance?"


[* Okay, don't get your panties in a bunch; I know that he likes it pronounced "Beyner", but come on, who can really pass this up...?]

a Palin ticket scares me because it's probable the REMFpublicans would have one of their whipped up ignorant brainwashed fanatics eliminate Obama and run Palin against Biden...

Roy Blunt? When I saw "Blunt-Boehner 2012: The Dream Ticket," my first thought was of a hollowed-out White Owl cigar, stuffed with teh chronic. My bad.
