Since I take this exercise as a non-preference deal, but just as a prediction of what Johnny Boy would do, I'll pick Lieberman.

Vigilante said...

Romney or Huckabee....?
OK I'll take Romney!

Emily said...

I'm taking Romney, too!

Vigilante said...

Then, I'm switching to Huckabee!

Gov. Charlie Crist

Stella said...

I'm with B4F: Lieberman. Jeb Bush? Please, no!

an average patriot said...

Romney flat out! He destroyed my Stat (Mass) and wants to do the same under McCain. After hearing his speech how Dems are the countries enemy because we want to take care of the sick, elderly, and needy, I was stupefied.

Boris said...

Hell, I'll take Jeb. What the hell?

GetaLife-ReadUrNews said...

I'll go Sarah Palin. I'll win with her. McCain won't, though. McCain won't win period.

DB Cooper said...

Why not Marsha Blackburn? Why shouldn't I take a long shot? Ain't that what McCain is?

Yellow Dog said...

Despite Stella's above advert for the Huckster, I'll risk my punditry rep on Carly Fiorina.

Mitt Romney!

Patrick Henry said...

It will be Tim Pawlenty. 100% positive.

NEW YORK BRIT said...

Ok then. The Brit suggests Joe Lieberman is the Granpa's preferred veep shithead. He'll be referred to in the MSM as the Wrinkly's Running Mate.

Writing in Senator Lindsey Graham

Non-Partisàn said...

I'm predicting Michael Rubens Bloomberg.

Messenger said...

Doctor D., your write in of Lindsey Graham was inspired! I shoulda woulda and coulda put him on the ballot. If I were participating in my own Veepstakes, I would have picked him!

Vigilante said...

Keep one thing in mind: for McCain there's only one way out of a devastating defeat and that is not to accept his party's nomination. One plan would be to resign before the convention on account of a medical diagnosis. So, you may be picking the head of the GOP ticket, here.

Stella said...

Good point, Vig. What if this is a smoke screen to get Good Ole' Jeb boy in office? McCain is highly expendable. Here's a nightmare: Jeb and Huckabee.

I'm done. I can't waste my beautiful mind on such ugly thoughts.

Doc Demento said...

I'm quite content to stake my entire reputation for punditry on The McGraham Crackers! I think they look good together!

Boris said...

Good one, Doc!

Boris said...

I'm switching to Lieberman. No-wait. I'm not! It's Jeb. Maybe. Yeah I guess I'll stick with Jeb.

Stella said...

Messenger, I'm sticking with Lieberman. He's the only candidate who will willingly play Uriah Heep to McShame's disgraceful temper.

Messenger said...

For those wishing to bolster their reps as prophetic pundits, they should consult The Next Cheney. This is a robust source.

Stella said...

"With a little more luck, I might have been able to ask you to be my Vice-President."
— John McCain to Dick Cheney, 10/23/01

I wouldn't be surprised...

Great site, messenger.

McCain Camp Not "Ruling Out" One Term Pledge.

Anvendelig said...

Fmr. Homeland Security Czar Tom Ridge

Vigilante said...

Stella, the only reason I'm not picking Lieberman is that I don't want you to have to share the honors with me! That would be where my money would be. Where my heart would be? Larry Craig!

Vigilante said...

For the record, I'm sticking with Huckible, (Or howevber it's spelled.)

an average patriot said...

They are saying it is Gov. Sarah Palin. I was just on the road so it might have been announced by now?

Messenger said...

Yes, Patriot. Congratulations to GetaLife-ReadUrNews!
