A Liberal's Nightmare Indeed

I remembered this post from Scott-o-Rama (blogger, turned censor more than once, turned ex-blogger) early on in the primaries:
There are some rumors going around the Internets about who John McCain, having pretty much sealed the deal of being the Republican nominee, will pick as his running mate. Choosing the Vice Presidential candidate for a ticket is an extremely strategic decision. The running mate is often used to court groups whom the Presidential candidate has not yet won over. In this case McCain still is not popular among the ultra-conservatives, so he most likely will pick a running mate who is.

Some of the names being floated:
  • Mike Huckabee, the "my-son-shoots-dogs" creationist who is popular among religious Neanderthals zealots;
  • South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, who garnered a lifetime rating of 92 from the American Conservative Union;
  • Jeb Bush. Do I even need to explain why this gives me nightmares?
Keep in mind that McCain is not sure if he would seek a second term if elected due to his age, so one of these men could be the front-runner for the 2012 election.
I can only imagine that those nightmares became night-terrors and endless days of bloodshot eyes after McCain picked Palin.
