The Dream Team

What you smell is the Republican presidential field for 2012. Crack open a window, get out the Glade, light a candle--face it, there's nothing you can do to get rid of the odor. So let's revel in it!

How about Romney/Christie? Slick and the Fatman. With Sarah Palin as Secretary of State and Michele Bachmann as the next Supreme Court justice. (If this seems farfetched to you, you must not have been paying attention during the Bush years.)

Fire up the helicopter and let's do us some campaignin' !

Too much brain power to appeal to the Republican base? (Why yes, I am being sarcastic again.) OK, how about Pawlenty/Huckabee? T-Paw and the Huckster. At least they could never be accused of talking down to anyone. T-Paw has a bridge he wants to sell you--oops, it collapsed!

Jeb "I'm the smart one" Bush and Liz Cheney--because Bush-Cheney worked so well the first time, and Americans have notoriously short memories? Jon Huntsman and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Herman Cain and a pizza? Rick Santorum and a piece of lint?

Seriously, what difference could it possibly make? To become the Republican nominee in 2012 will require a complete denial of the known world. Name a worthy Republican (now there's an oxymoron). Whoever it is will have to bow down to the Tea Party to be nominated. That in itself should make them unelectable. Throw in endorsing the Ryan budget plan and its gutting of Medicare and the assault on Social Security and you have a perfect storm of losing positions.
