McCain and Romney sittin' in a tree . . .

A Boston Globe article refers to "backlash" at the idea of a McCain/Romney ticket--apparently because Romney won't appeal to McCain's "base." Eh? What base? The base that supports pouring blood and billions into war--any war--in the Middle East, to "promote democracy," while simultaneously choking off freedom in the U.S.?

For me, though, this part was the best:

And Romney lacks the common touch on the campaign trail, as well, [Philip] Klein argues: "All but the most ardent Romney backers would have to admit that it's hard to see Romney -- who signed an assault weapons ban as governor of Massachusetts -- going into those gun-clinging small towns of Ohio and Pennsylvania and connecting with locals any better than Barack Obama."
Well, Phil, you may be right that Romney's position on so-called "assault weapons" won't go down too well with voters McCain needs, but it fits in swimmingly with McCain's own voting record.

In the end, I don't think we need to worry too much about whom McCain picks as a running mate--about all that's left to be decided now is what kind of genuflection will be appropriate for expressing our worshipful reverence of the "Lightworker."

Did someone say we're "winning"?

Yeah--exactly the kinds of personal characteristic they despise.
