Which Republican Should Be President?
(Choices listed alphabetically to minimize bias)
A potato would be safest.
I admit this poll is a bit rigged, because any Democrat will probably vote for the potato.
I said in 2008 that the Bush Presidency was so horrible that the Democrats would win if they just nominated a potato. They pretty much did. Hillary had baggage; young Barry Obama was just a potato with the word 'Hope' scrawled on him.
With the economy still reeling, the Republicans can retake the Whitehouse by nominating a potato. Luckily for the Democrats, there are no potatoes in the Republican field. Pototoes don't deny global warming. Potatoes don't strap dogs to the roof of their Volvos.
Why isn't Obama listed as a choice??
He's been the best thing for the Republicans since Ronnie Raygun.
this whole conversation got me thinking of dan quayle and didn't he have trouble spelling potato or something like that?
His most famous blunder occurred when he altered student William Figueroa's correct spelling of "potato" to "potatoe" at an elementary school spelling bee in Trenton, New Jersey, on June 15, 1992. Quayle was widely lambasted for his apparent inability to spell the word "potato". According to his memoirs, he was relying on cards provided by the school, which included the misspelling. Quayle said he was uncomfortable with the version he gave, but did so because he decided to trust the school's incorrect written materials.
The economy is not reeling. It was reeling. Now it is not. It's improving. Slower than some would like perhaps, but it's still improving.
