He closed his remarks with, "BUY MY BOOK!"

I'm pretty sure that Mitt can sew up the complete asshole vote without Newt on the ticket.

Newt's too busy starting up a new PAC that he can use as his own cash machine until it declares Chapter 7.

Just imagine the wacko they're going to find to be vice-president after the shiat they had to dig through to get the presidential candidate. Who's going to want to be the bottom when no sane person wanted to be on top?

"I think he's got somebody like Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire, Rob Portman, Marco Rubio. You look at a Susana Martinez, Bobby Jindal, or you look at somebody like Mitch Daniel. We have a really -- we have a big, deep bench now."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I had no idea he was a ghost writer for the Colbert Report.

Newt's a Washington outsider.

He'll never be inside Washington again.

He's right though. They do have a fairly deep pool of good conservative candidates. The problem is, nobody wants to get off it.

Man, when even Newt doesn't want the gig you know Mittens is going to have a hard time find anyone with even the slightest tinge of respectability or at least national name recognition to help sell his doomed ticket.

Has anyone actually evinced any interest in the gig?

This election has been a freaking circus. I'd say Gingrich as vp would fit nicely with the theme.

And I appear to be mixing my metaphors. Meh, whatever.

Michele Bachmann might end up being Romney's VP pick. Who else would be crazy enough to take the job?

That's ok Newt. We don't want you to be VP either.

No, that's exactly the word to use.

It's almost like he never really wanted the job, just wanted an easy meal ticket with all the fancy jets and traveling that came with the campaign (which will probably NEVER get paid off).

Not as succinct as McPain/Failin' but this may be my sticker for this cycle.

I still think they'll go for Huckabee...

I think he would pick Dennis Kucinich before crazy eyes. At least he's not married to a fat gay dude, far from it.

T-Servo: I still think they'll go for Huckabee...


I think this would be a good strategy. I thought 2012 would be Romney/Huckabee until Huckabee sat out this race. I don't really see him coming back in, if only to not be tied to a losing ticket for whatever political aspirations he may have in 2016.

Huckabee probably would be Romney's best bet and would probably be a tough, albeit ultimately losing, ticket against Obama.

"I think Romney is going to look for somebody who is younger," said Gingrich, on CNN.

Newt knows all about that.

"No, don't pick me. No, sir-ee. I'm not interested. I said, NOT INTERESTED. Definitely DO NOT pick me as your running mate."

*Translation*: "I so desperately want the Veep job I can't barely contain myself."

This would be worth it just for the vice presidential debate.

No matter who's talking, The list of VP candidates includes several people who have vehemently said no already. If Mitch, Bobby or Marco wanted any part of that they would have been in the primary and handed Romney his ass on a platter. If the news is to be believed the GOP elite were practically begging Mitch Daniels to run for Pres. So maybe that deep pool of candidates is more like a wading pool after all...

Marcus Aurelius: I'm pretty sure that Mitt can sew up the complete asshole vote without Newt on the ticket.


Let's ponder that "sew up the asshole" phrase a moment, in all it's horrific glory...

FeedTheCollapse: Huckabee probably would be Romney's best bet and would probably be a tough, albeit ultimately losing, ticket against Obama.


I agree they probably won't get him, but I'm sure they'll try.

I'm hoping for a Bachmann VP slot, just for the lulz.

How long until we see his cardboard cutout with his voice recorded repeating that over and over?

Is the word "fantastical"? Because it means "rooted in that which is regarded as fantasy, or as so extreme as to challenge belief."

Mitt, I'll throw my hat in the ring. Have your people call my people. No, I'm not a republican but that's okay, I can pretend

They are the people with the $ that stand in the shadows and pull the strings of the RNC. The Dems have their 'elite as well.
