Dogberry: Finally! A Munster in the White House.

NO WAY. Paul Allen is all blah blah blah. The tea party needs a vice president who can put words into action:

I have a theory:

Much like he did at Bain, Mitt Romney started with something that was a little weak but had a lot of promise.

He's gotten lots of money from people like Rove and Sheldon Adelson

So why wouldn't Romney do what he does best? Take the money, suck everyone dry, and leave the Republican party a rusty useless shell while Romney jets off to the Bahamas?

In these days of extreme political divisiveness, we really need a team that can see both sides of an issue. There are so many issues that divide Americans, as a people, and we need to be able to come together. Pro Choice/Pro Life? Assault-weapons ban/pro-2nd amendment? Government health insurance/private insurance?

These are complex issues, and we really need the executive branch to be able to see both sides.

That's why the perfect running mate is Tim Yenmor. The Mit Romney/Tim Yenmor team can easily see both sides of any issue and bring us all together on common ground.

It just makes sense if you think about it both ways.

At the height of the convention, with the eyes of the nation upon him, Mitt Romney will take the stage with an awkward smile and a gleam in his eyes. He'll fidget nervously, then start and stop his prepared speech a few times. Republicans in the crowd will start look at each other, some in fear and some with resigned acceptance that even the least offensive shiat-flavored ice cream is still edible if libs have to eat it too. People will rise angrily in their seats. Some will shrug to themselves. Eventually a sweat will break out across Romney's forehead. His eyes will dart back and forth across the convention. With slumping shoulders, he'll lean in towards the mic for one last chance at redemption...

"Tank you very much."

Then Mitt Romney will appear to give birth to Andy Kaufman live on stage.

He'll back over to the mic, smile, and deadpan "So... what'd I miss?"

/Tony Clifton will get tapped for VP

SO not only will Obama be able to point to Romney as wanting to raise taxes on the middle class in order to benefit the wealthy and largest businesses, he can add "destroying medicare in order to benefit the wealthy and largest businesses" to it too.

Brilliant.

meat0918: ComicBookGuy: Um, liberals in this thread: what if this ticket got ELECTED?

I'd suffer through the 4-8 years with my head down and nose to the grindstone scrimping and saving and hope they don't drive the economy to a recession so deep that people will long for the good old days of Herbert Hoover.


Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.

BorgiaGinz: Now this is pure discrimination--you straight boys got plenty of T&A shots of Palin, but where are the pics of Paul Ryan in a speedo? Or even posing shirtless? He is 100% pure evil, but he is also a stone-cold fox, tied with Aaron Schock (R-IL) for Member of Congress I Want to Molest.

Aaron Schock at least gives up the beefcake shots. Sadly, he is also evil.

Ryan would be a great choice. He's a policy and budget wonk who is very articulate and thinks well on his feet.

Though the VP choice usually offers little voting advantage, Ryan's popularity in Wisconsin just might make a difference in that swing state.

Getting libs in a froth with their claims he wants to unhook granny's oxygen tank will help expose the fact he was one of the few voices in Congress with the political sack to tackle the massive budget hole Bush and Obama have created.

But he does have that Eddie Munster thing going.

to persuade Mitt Romney to select that nice young Boy Scout down the street who's offered to fix our finances, Paul Ryan, as Vice President.

Slight nitpick, but Romney's going to select a running mate. It's unlikely that he's selecting a Vice President.

Why would Romney do that? It would tie him to a specific, unchangeable position, which is clearly antithetical to his being.

Romney did not make 500 million (250 million disclosed) dollars by being stupid. He may be craven, dishonest, heartless and unfeeling, but he is not stupid. Paul Ryan is an anchor with the appeal of a used car salesman with herpes who wants to date your daughter by becoming an insincere friend of your son.
