Dream Date VP...Mitt Romney

Some people believe in unicorns. Some people believe in elves. And then some people believe that Mitt Romney is the best VP candidate for McCain.

Possible? Well, that's what some Repub insiders are saying. Mostly for his ability to raise money and bringing strong conservative base to vote. But seriously, he would only continue the same rhetoric we've already seen for the past 8 years. Romney jumped back and forth in his beliefs, tried to appeal too hard to people, and banked on his business background, which sent a message that he would protect big businesses and corporations.

But one of the glaring problems would be his religion. He's Mormon, which is fine with me, but in the Republican Party? I don't know about that one. I don't want to sound mean, but when you think about the people in the Repub party, you don't get the all-inviting team players. Some of them are a part of the Super-Christian right that fails to acknowledge other religious groups. Then you have the morons who may think that Mormons are scary people with demons as pets. Sounds crazy, but if you lived in Tennessee and Kentucky like I have, you would understand.

I know he's cute and younger, but this could hurt McCain more than...well, McCain. Especially, if he does this again

It appears that it’s all down to Alaska Gov Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney, and team Romney fears Palin now has the best shot, so Romney camp is mounting a blogosphere-wide assault via Politico.

The tip-off that Politico is just a “promote Romney” piece is that it mentions EVERY NAME in the next two tiers of Veep prospects EXCEPT SARAH PALIN!!! — even names far more unlikely than Palin (since Romney camp knows Palin is the ONLY ONE who tops — I’ll say tops by far — Romney as McCain’s best pick).

Bottom line, Romney and Politico fear Palin most — as do the Dems and the MSM. (By the way, the Dems and MSM do not fear Romney the most — which says a lot.)

AOL, a main on-line pro-Obama/pro-Dem player, is now carrying the Politico piece promoting Romney buzz.

Clearly AOL wants McCain and the GOP to lose the general elction — hence they gladly promote Romney (no mention of Palin).

Also, CNN had Romney — kind of out of the blue — attacking Obama. Again, CNN, wanting McCain and the GOP to lose, gladly promotes Romney (to attempt to avert the Palin threat).

All the media frenzy which will surround the remarkable Palin “story” — essentially free to McCain — will be worth millions and millions of dollars of coverage and PR (more money than Romney would provide anyway).
