You know who we should draft to run for president in 2012?
Edited on Sat May-02-09 04:52 PM by Drunken Irishman
Michele Bachman.

Screw Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal. Buh-bye Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

Bachman is the real candidate the Republicans should run in 2012.

Could you imagine the debate between her and Obama?

Oh please, Lord, make this happen!

50-state landslide?

Largest margin of victory in modern presidential history?

I know many of you who lived through the landslides of '72 and '84 are just itching for something similar with Obama. Nixon and Reagan took us out to the woodshed and embarrassed us and I know none of you are over that. We were pantsed nationally and I so would love to not only pants the Republicans in 2012, but force them down the Walk of Shame.

C'mon, who's with me?!?

1. '76? Carter's election?
Or do you mean Nixon v. McGovern, '72?

2. '76 was hardly a landslide

4. Obviously I meant 72, since Nixon didn't run against Carter.

5. Great idea! Particularly since
it would also get her out of office in Minnesota.

6. It would be a landslide
but Bachman would still carry much of the South and also Wyoming, Idaho and Utah.

7. The only problem I see is that I might have to vote for her
How could anyone resist the four year freak show she'd bring to Washington?

Disclaimer: I will not - under any circumstances whatsoever - vote for a Republican in 2012, 2016 or any other election year I live long enough to see.

9. So you don't expect Obama to run for re-election?

11. There is more chance of Hillary being struck by lightning than this happening.

12. That's about as likely as Sarah Palin saying something intelligent.
